Not right away: It takes time for shots to work, can be up to one year being on highest maintenance dose for your condition/sensitivities. Once they work, your symptoms score would be less, meaning the related symptoms would be better, need for medications becomes less, and better tolerance to triggers. It needs tincture of time and patience and adherence to your prescribed medications i.e. no magic bullet(s)
