In brief: Depends

It really depends on the patient, compliance is very important.
If a patient is compliant with once- or twice-weekly shots, he or she should begin to see improvement after 6-9 months of therapy.

In brief: Build-up phase

The benefits of immunotherapy, in terms of reduced allergy symptoms, can begin during the build-up phase but may take as long as 12 months on the maintenance dose.
Improvement with immunotherapy may be progressive throughout the immunotherapy treatment period. Effectiveness of immunotherapy appears to be related to length of treatment and the dose of the allergen.
