In brief: More Research

There is some some research data supprting their usage, but much more is needed to assure safety and whether they are effective enough to justify the time and expense.

In brief: Not FDA-approved

Sublingual or allergy drops are not currently fda-approved in the United States.
Studies conducted in the United States have shown mixed results for their effectiveness. At this time, they are an alternative to injections only in rare cases.
