Before you receive your infusion, you will meet your infusion specialist. They will go over your medical history and your concerns to create an infusion plan that suits your preferences and comprehensively addresses your needs. So, if you lack certain vitamins or minerals, such as vitamin B or iron, the specialist can incorporate them into the treatment.
On the day of your infusion, it’s encouraged to hydrate well and bring along some entertainment to your appointment, such as a book, a podcast, or a mobile game. Before beginning the infusion, the specialist will conduct a brief health evaluation to ensure your safety. Then, fluids, medications, minerals, and vitamins are administered via a vein in the arm or hand.
Once the infusion is complete, the healthcare professional will gently remove the IV line and go over the post-infusion instructions with you. If you have any questions or concerns, our team is here to provide guidance and support.
The ideal frequency of IV infusions depends on the health condition being treated and your specific needs. Your healthcare provider will outline the recommended frequency once the consultation process is complete.
If you are receiving IV therapy for a chronic health condition, such as chronic fatigue syndrome or lupus, regular sessions provide the most effective results. Additionally, those who are seeking treatment for general wellness purposes usually come in for monthly appointments.
Furthermore, IV therapy is a great approach for dealing with acute conditions such as dehydration, jetlag, and nutritional deficiencies. In these cases, it’s recommended to come in for an infusion when symptoms start to affect you.
Overall, the recommended timing for your IV therapy treatments is determined by taking into account a few factors. At the end of your consultation, the specialist will let you know how often it’s advised to come in for treatment.
One of the main advantages of IV therapy is the immediate hydration benefits that come with it. Improved hydration is associated with enhanced mood and energy levels. Typically, patients experience the benefits of IV therapy for about 4 days to 2 weeks after their appointment.
It’s important to understand that the effects of IV therapy vary for each person depending on general wellness, underlying health conditions, metabolism, and the body’s response to the infusion. For example, if you have an iron deficiency, one to two sessions spread over a few weeks can correct anemia and reduce symptoms. However, those with autoimmune conditions, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or multiple sclerosis (MS), see the most benefits with ongoing treatments.
Yes, you can still receive IV infusions if you are taking other medications. However, it’s very important to communicate which medication and the dosage you are taking to the infusion provider during the consultation stage. This will allow the healthcare professional to ensure that there are no adverse interactions between your medication and the components of the infusion.
If it is determined that your regular medications have the potential to interact with the infusion, the specialist can adjust the infusion components. Alternatively, you can work with your primary care physician to adjust the timing of your regular medications so you can receive IV therapy.
