Acarizax (Standardized Allergen Extract HDM) is a prescription medication used to treat severe house dust mite allergy symptoms that have not responded to other treatments. House dust mite allergy symptoms include sneezing, itchy, stuffy, or runny nose. The drug is also used to treat allergic rhinitis in adults and adolescents between 12 and 65 years of age. The active ingredient in Acarizax is Standardized Allergen Extract HDM. Standardized Allergen Extract HDM belongs to a class of medications called allergy immunotherapy. It works by giving the body a fixed amount of house dust mite allergy extract to allow the immune system to build a natural tolerance to the allergy.
