Acarizax 

Indication

House dust mite allergen extract belongs to the class of medications called allergy immunotherapy. It is used to treat moderate-to-severe allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy, stuffy or runny nose caused by house dust mite allergy. Before treatment with house dust mite allergen extract, your doctor will confirm your allergy with either a skin or a blood test.

This medication works by causing the body's immune system to become less sensitive to the effects of the dust mites. It may take between 8 and 14 weeks of using this medication regularly, before symptoms begin to improve. This medication does not provide immediate relief for symptoms of house dust mite allergy.

This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of this medication may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor.

Do not give this medication to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Dosage

The recommended adult dose of this medication is 1 tablet, taken once daily by letting it dissolve under the tongue.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

To take the tablet, carefully remove the tablet from the foil packaging with dry hands. Place the tablet under your tongue and allow it to dissolve. Try not to swallow for 1 minute after placing the tablet under your tongue. Avoid eating and drinking anything for 5 minutes after taking the medication. Wash your hands after handling the tablet.

It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Leave the tablets in the original foil packaging until you are ready to take a dose. This will protect the tablet from moisture in the air.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Precautions

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.
