About ORALAIR

ORALAIR is an oral (under the tongue) grass allergy immunotherapy tablet that gives you symptom relief from grass allergies. It is not known exactly how ORALAIR works, but researchers think it changes how your immune system responds to grass pollen.

Begin daily treatment with ORALAIR 4 months before grass allergy season so your body has enough time to get ahead of grass allergy symptoms. You continue to take treatment once a day throughout grass allergy season.

Proven results

Over time, ORALAIR is effective in relieving grass allergy symptoms—not only in the first pollen season after you begin treatment, but also year after year for up to 3 years. ORALAIR can help you reduce your grass allergy symptoms like:

  • runny or itchy nose

  • itchy and watery eyes

  • sneezing

  • nasal congestion

It can also help you take less other allergy medicine during the grass allergy season. It has a proven safety profile for children and adolescents (ages 10-17) and adults (ages 18-65).

ORALAIR can cause severe allergic reactions that may be life-threatening. Symptoms of allergic reactions to ORALAIR include:

• Trouble breathing

• Throat tightness or swelling

• Trouble swallowing or speaking

• Dizziness or fainting

• Rapid or weak heartbeat

• Severe stomach cramps or pain, vomiting, or diarrhea

• Severe flushing or itching of the skin

If any of these symptoms occur, stop taking ORALAIR and immediately seek medical care. For home administration of ORALAIR, your doctor should prescribe auto-injectable epinephrine for you to keep at home for treating a severe reaction, should one occur. Your doctor will train and instruct you on the proper use of auto-injectable epinephrine.
