Newer, under-the-tongue allergy tablets can help protect your body in advance of the season — especially if you only have a grass allergy or have a strong allergy to grass with other less troublesome spring allergies.

These medications, known as sublingual oral immunotherapy tablets, help the immune system build a tolerance to certain allergens. This reduces allergy symptoms and also reduces your need for other medications, such as antihistamines, to treat symptoms.
