IV Infusion Therapy

Sometimes you may experience extreme fatigue or carry out an intense physical activity that may leave you feeling dehydrated and weak. Going for John’s Creek IV vitamin infusion at Lenox Medical Clinic can give your body the nutrients it needs to rejuvenate and replenish your energy levels and promote healing.

What do you need to know about IV vitamin fusion?

IV vitamin infusions allow the intravenous administration of vital nutrients into your body, replenishing your energy and revitalizing your body. An IV infusion makes it possible to deliver potent doses of amino acids, minerals, and vitamins directly into your bloodstream at amounts that are not possible using oral supplements.

IV vitamins have a high percentage of 100% vitamin absorption, unlike oral supplements, which only have a 50% absorption chance. Infusion therapy often lasts for about 30-60 minutes at Lenox Medical Clinic. You may relax or even work on your computer during the procedure as the fluids drip into your bloodstream. An infusion therapy consists of nutrients that promote the healing process and replenish your body with essential liquids.

How can you prepare for your IV vitamin fusion?

Preparing for an IV vitamin infusion is not complicated at all. Your provider may guide you through every step of the procedure. Before your therapy, you need to drink plenty of fluids and eat a healthy lunch or breakfast. You may also need to wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment.

Your provider may also request you to avoid decongestants or over-the-counter antihistamines on the day of your appointment. You may need to inform your provider about your medical history to prevent complications. If you wish, you can bring a magazine, music, or book to help you relax and pass the time during the therapy.

Who can benefit from IV infusion therapy?

Before the procedure, your provider performs a series of tests to determine if IV vitamin infusion therapy is right for you. These also enable your doctor to determine the right dosage and how long you should receive it. You can consult your provider about an IV vitamin infusion therapy if you:

  • Have a urinary tract infection
  • Just participated in a marathon or high endurance physical activity
  • Dehydrated
  • Have a respiratory tract infection
  • Suffer from illnesses such as gastroenteritis accompanied with severe diarrhea and vomiting

The Lenox Medical Clinic team evaluates and discusses your symptoms before prescribing IV vitamin infusion to promote your healing process and replenish energy.

What risks are associated with infusion therapy?

Iv infusion therapy is a smooth procedure that rarely causes any complications, but it may be difficult to insert an IV needle if you have small veins. Several infusions can result in scar tissue over time, which may, in turn, damage your veins. Other risks include collapsed veins, air embolism, phlebitis, and infection.

In some cases, your IV needle may become dislodged, causing the surrounding tissues to absorb the medication, which may be harmful. Some people may also react strongly to new drugs, especially during their first IV infusion therapy. Your provider may educate you on the possible risks and what to do to avoid them.
