Like /u/nuovo_donna mentions, there's not a lot a doctor can do for allergies aside from immunotherapy, aka "allergy shots". Nasacort + Zyrtec is actually quite effective, and fairly inexpensive. HEB has cheap generic Zyrtec (Cetirizine HCL), although you can find it even cheaper on amazon. There is no generic for Nasacort yet. The effectiveness of these drugs is significantly higher if you start them before you react to the pollen. Some doctors will prescribe a short dose of prednisone or a cortisone shot if you are having a serious reaction (to the point your reduced lung function is causing reduced blood oxygen or significantly low spirometry numbers), but those treatments are not something you can or should do every allergy season.

I started shots last year, in terms of cost, here's what was billed to my insurance between the first visit and reaching maintenance dose:

  • Initial visit with allergist: $165

  • Skin testing: $450 (pinprick tests on back) + $264 (additional intradermal tests on upper arms)

  • Followup visit to discuss skin test results / treatment plan with allergist: $120

  • Serum formulation (6 5cc vials for buildup + 2 10cc maintenance dose vials, IIRC), lung function tests, and initial cluster injection visit: $1775

  • Followup visit after completing 1:2000 and 1:200 dilution , before starting 1:20 dilution: $120

  • 28 injection visits @ $40/ea: $1120

    Total: $4014 -- Note these are the billed costs as reported by my insurance company's website, not the insurance plan discount costs, and I honestly have no idea how providers handle self-pay patients. I did not select my provider based on cost, but rather insurance acceptance and proximity to my workplace (so I could get shots at lunch) -- so you may be able to find lower costs if you shop around.

    I am allergic to a boatload of stuff, so I get two shots per visit, one in each arm, due to the sheer number of things I am allergic to. So that means $40 per injection visit instead of $30, and twice the quantity of serum vials.

    My insurance covered this except for the $50 copay on each of the 3 doctors visits.

Indeed. This is why I bought some nifty off-brand Zyrtec from Amazon.

Shit's bomb, yo.
