The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved use of OralAir and Grastek, sublingual tablets that treat grass allergies, as well as the Ragwitek tablet for ragweed. “You can take them at home, they have much less side effects [than allergy shots] and they seem to work pretty well,” Stukus says.
