Why did the doctor not tell details of the injection given to the patient ?

ALLERGY - Respiratory . Hello, my uncle (65 yrs) has been having sinusitis for the past 30 years. About 6 months ago, he had a new consisting with a bit of cough + phlegm building on his throat . So far, the meds that my uncle was prescribed until now wereAerius / Telfast / Clarinese / Xyzal. Recently, he was given ampules for own injections (daily) just in case his allergy got worse. The doctor that prescribed didn t want to let us know the meds ingredients. So far, after getting the injections, my uncle s allergy was getting better. But we re curious WHY the doctor didn t want tell us about the meds. Our question, is there such thing as INJECTION medicine intended for allergy purpose? Also.. recently, my uncle was prescribed with another meds -- Singulair, on top of those meds above + the injection meds. Please advise.

Hi welcome to HCM. Yes there is an emergency injection that can be taken subcutaneously in an emergency and is sometimes handed over to patients for use in an emergency. Rest of your medications are for asthma and allergy. His doctor has probably not told him details of the injection because it may unnecessarily create anxiety if he reads about it. I am sure his doctor would have told him how to use the injection and what to expect. If he is a specialist, I am sure he knows what he is doing and you must trust him. Regards
