What Grazax is and what it is used for
Grazax contains an allergen extract of grass pollen. Grazax is used to treat rhinitis and conjunctivitis caused by grass pollen in adults and children (5 years or older). Grazax modifies the allergic disease by increasing immunological tolerance towards grass pollen. Children are selected for treatment by doctors experienced in the treatment of allergic diseases in children. The doctor will evaluate your allergic symptoms and make a skin prick test or take a blood sample in order to decide if Grazax should be used for treatment. You are advised to take the first oral lyophilisate under medical supervision. This is a precaution in order to evaluate each patient´s sensitivity to the treatment. This gives you the possibility of discussing possible side effects with the doctor. Grazax is prescribed by doctors with experience in treatment of allergy.
