IV Therapy: Frequently Asked Questions
You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers!
1Do you take insurance?
Unfortunately not. IV treatments at this time are not covered by insurance providers.
2Can I come with a group?
Absolutely! Coming with friends is a great way to receive your IV treatment as well as a group discount. Contact us to learn more about group discounts.
3Does IV therapy hurt?
There is a tiny pinch when the needle is placed, but very minimal discomfort.
4Are there any side effects?
Although rare and usually minor, there are a few side effects that can result from IV treatments. Some of those include infection, bruising/soreness around the IV site, or an allergic reaction to a specific medication. These side effects are usually short lived and require no intervention.
5How long does IV therapy take?
The entire process takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the type of drip you are receiving and the volume that must be given.
6Can I eat prior to IV therapy?
Absolutely. There are no sedative medications given in our IV drips so there is no need to avoid eating.
7Do I need someone to take me home?
No. There is no need to have an escort after any of our IV drips. (Excluding Ketamine infusions)
8Can I drink alcohol afterwards IV therapy?
While there are no fluid or dietary restrictions after your treatment, we do recommend moderate alcohol consumption as part of a healthy lifestyle.
9What size needle do you use?
We make every attempt to use the smallest needle size possible. Needle size is typically a 22G but can be a 20G or 24G as well.
10Where will the IV be administered?
The IV will be placed in a position that is most comfortable to you while maximizing the chance of 1st time success. While every attempt is made to place the IV the first attempt, sometimes a second attempt is needed.
11How often can/should I receive an IV drip?
Depending on your reason for seeking an IV drip, your needs may be weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. The more treatments you receive the less dramatic your results will feel as your body is reaching its optimum hydration level. In addition, certain IV booster medications can/should only be given a specific number of times per year.
