We first tried this in a lower dose and it did nothing for my daughter but when her Doctor was able to up the dosage it became much more effective. It doesn't contain all of her allergy symptoms but makes her life more managable. I do notice that she itches more when we take her off of it for awhile, so I would say it does nothing for long-term relief.
