The following information is important for your first visit to our clinic:
You should plan your schedule to allow approximately one hour for your first visit.
Medications containing antihistamines should be stopped for 5 days prior to the first visit. DO NOT stop any other medications including nasal sprays or asthma medications. If you cannot stop the antihistamines for 5 days please stay on the antihistamines.
