Preparing For Your Visit

Food or Drug Challenges

A food/drug challenge is done to help identify an allergy to a specific food/drug and the amount of that food/drug it may take to cause a reaction. In order to be prepared for your or your child's food/drug challenge, please do the following:

  • Bring in the specific food/drug for the food challenge on the day of the test. If your child is having a food challenge, you should bring a favorite food in which to place the food to be challenged if you think he/she may refuse the food being challenged.
  • Antihistamines will affect the results of these tests and need to be stopped 3 days before the testing is done. If you have any concerns about stopping antihistamines, check with your/your child's doctor before you stop the medicine. We may not be able to perform the test if this medicine is not stopped.
  • Be sure to bring snacks, meals, other essentials (such as diapers or other medicines you may need to take during the day such as insulin), and things to pass the time (such as books or toys). A food challenge can take 4 hours or longer and you will not be allowed to leave the office until the challenge is complete.
