IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream.

This type of therapy allows nutrients to bypass your digestive processes, which can limit how much of the vitamins and minerals your body actually absorbs.

By infusing them directly into your blood, your body can immediately access the nutrients to boost your energy levels and relieve symptoms of acute and chronic illnesses.

Weekend Urgent Care offers customized IV therapy solutions to optimize your health. The providers review your medical history and discuss your wellness goals to determine which IV therapies are right for you.

When should I consider IV therapy?

You may be a candidate for IV therapy if you’re not feeling well because of:

  • Cold or flu
  • Hangover
  • Dehydration
  • Chronic fatigue

IV therapy is also beneficial for those recovering from a workout or sports training and for individuals that want to strengthen their immune system.

The Weekend Urgent Care providers can also recommend IV therapy sessions if you want to boost your overall health or have difficulty absorbing oral vitamins and minerals.

Which nutrients are in IV therapy?

There’s a wide range of nutrients available that the Weekend Urgent Care providers can use in your IV therapy session, including:

  • Zinc
  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Glutathione
  • Magnesium

The medical providers can also infuse medications for nausea, acid reflux, and allergies into your blood during IV therapy.

What happens during an IV therapy appointment?

During your appointment, the providers start an IV line in a vein and connect it to a bag of fluids. The fluids slowly drip into your bloodstream while the medical staff monitors your heart rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs.

Once your therapy session is complete, you can return to your usual activities without limitations. You may feel more energized immediately after your treatment and can expect to enjoy the full benefit of IV therapy within a day or two of your appointment.

Depending on your overall health and wellness goals, the providers may recommend additional IV therapy sessions every few weeks to maintain your results.
