Medications To Stop Using Before Skin Testing

IF YOU EXPECT TO HAVE ALLERGY TESTING DONE AT YOUR VISIT, DISCONTINUE ANTIHISTAMINES 5 DAYS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT. (We do not re-test yearly unless the patient is having new problems or if we have not seen the patient for three years. If you are not due for skin testing, please do NOT stop taking your medications.) If you have questions about whether or not you need testing at your next visit, please call our office at (614) 891-0550. Thank you.
