IV Vitamin Infusion Q & A

What is an IV vitamin infusion?

IV vitamin infusion is often a multivitamin cocktail, infused with normal saline directly into your bloodstream. This means all of the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fluids are absorbed immediately by your body on a cellular level.

Infusion therapy takes about 30-60 minutes. After the IV is placed into your vein, you relax in a comfortable space while the fluids drip into your body.

The vitamins and other nutrients included in infusion therapy can revitalize your system. They help you heal faster and make you feel better with replenishment of fluids and nutrients.

Who is a candidate for IV vitamin infusion therapy?

You may be a candidate for IV vitamin infusion therapy at Lenox Medical Clinic if you:

  • Are generally dehydrated
  • Suffer from fatigue
  • Just ran a marathon or participated in another endurance sport
  • Suffered an illness, like gastroenteritis, with severe vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Are recovering from a respiratory tract infection
  • Are overcoming a urinary tract infection

After your symptoms are discussed and evaluated, you may be prescribed IV vitamin infusion therapy to help you recover quickly and feel your best.

What fluids are included in IV vitamin infusion therapy?

Not all IVs contain vitamins. If you’re dehydrated, you may benefit from a drip of a normal saline solution. Some patients need a Ringer’s lactate, a standard fluid that contains electrolytes like sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium, and lactate, as well as a multivitamin cocktail.  

How can an IV vitamin infusion help me?

An IV vitamin infusion can help you perform better physically and cognitively by resolving fluid, electrolyte, and other nutrient deficiencies. You may also find you recover faster after a workout. 

Optimal hydration combats fatigue and boosts your energy levels. The therapy also helps you recover faster from an illness than you might if you don’t opt for the infusion.
