IV Medication Infusion Q & A

What is an IV medication infusion?

An IV medication infusion is a type of hydration therapy that involves placing an IV into your arm to administer fluids, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes directly into your bloodstream. IV medication infusions are traditionally used in hospital settings, though they can also be administered if you’re recovering from:

  • Dehydration
  • Flu
  • Food poisoning
  • Excess alcohol intake
  • Travel
  • Strenuous exercise, like a marathon or intense workout

Many patients report increased energy and a feeling of greater mental clarity after receiving an IV medication infusion. 

What are the benefits of IV medication infusions?

Since IV medication infusions are delivered directly into your bloodstream, your body can absorb the fluids and nutrients more quickly than if you were to take them by mouth — either through eating or drinking. Most IV infusions take one hour to complete, which is a much faster way to replace lost fluids and nutrients than consuming them orally.

When getting an IV, your body can also absorb larger quantities of fluids and nutrients at one time since you’re bypassing your stomach. If you were to drink a similar amount of water or take a large dose of vitamins orally, you’re likely to experience nausea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

What types of IV medication infusions are available?

The team offers a variety of IV medication infusions, including:

  • Myers’ cocktail
  • Vitamin C
  • B complex
  • Biotin
  • Amino acids
  • Zofran®
  • Zinc
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Glutathione

Custom infusions are available along with a variety of combinations of fluids, vitamins, and minerals to help you feel more energized, think more clearly, and recover more quickly.

What should I expect when getting an IV medication infusion?

Before you begin your IV medication infusion, you discuss your symptoms and medical history with the team. They explain which infusions would work best for you, and once you’ve chosen the right combination for your needs, you can get settled for your infusion.

Once you’re reclining comfortably, your provider cleans your arm and inserts the IV needs. The infusion takes 30-60 minutes to completely enter your bloodstream, so during that time you can relax, listen to music, or watch a movie.

After your IV infusion is complete, your provider removes the needle from your arm, cleans the area, and applies a bandage. Afterward, you can return to your normal routine.
