IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is an outpatient procedure that administers vitamins, nutrients, and minerals through a needle and into a vein. When these nutrients enter your bloodstream, they bypass your digestive system, allowing for quicker and more thorough absorption into cells throughout your body. Ultimately, that means your body accesses more of the benefits

IV therapy takes 60-90 minutes and requires no downtime. As soon as your appointment is finished, you can return to normal activities right away.

Who can benefit from IV therapy?

At Coastal Primary Care, Dr. Rezai uses IV therapy to reduce the symptoms of various issues, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Fatigue
  • Hangovers
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Jet lag
  • The flu
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Nutritional deficiencies

You might also benefit from IV therapy if you’re physically active, such as an athlete.

What are the types of IV therapy?

At Coastal Primary Care, Dr. Rezai offers several types of IV therapy, including:

Vitamin therapy

Vitamin therapy involves Dr. Rezai administering a specific formula of vitamins and minerals into a vein. The type of formula you receive depends on your age and medical history. Before recommending IV therapy, Dr. Rezai orders bloodwork to determine your unique needs.

IV drip therapy

IV drip therapy focuses on a specific goal, instead of restoring the vitamins in your body to balance. For example, an antioxidant drip is designed to boost your immune system and keep you healthy. A hydration drip, on the other hand, is meant to prevent dehydration.

Is IV therapy safe?

IV therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated, but it can present risks, especially for those who have allergies or underlying heart conditions. During your initial appointment, let Dr. Rezai know about any medical conditions or allergies you have. In addition, provide him with a list of medicines and supplements you regularly take.

Could IV therapy benefit me?

Only a qualified medical provider like Dr. Rezai can determine if you might benefit from IV therapy. Following a discussion of your goals, a review of your health history, and possibly some lab tests, Dr. Rezai can design a custom care plan.
