1. Why should I get an IV at the Remedy Room?
IV therapy is the most effective way to deliver fluids, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes to the body. It is significantly more effective than oral administration of fluids and vitamins because IV contents are able to bypass the digestive system and go straight into your bloodstream, thus optimizing absorption and helping you feel better much faster. The Remedy Room has certified physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and medical assistants that provide outstanding personalized care in a spa-like clinic. With minimal wait times, experienced staff, and exceptional customer service, the Remedy Room experience is unlike any medical experience you’ve ever had.
2. How does the process work?
At your first visit, you will fill out electronic paperwork and sign consent forms. A staff member will then take your vital signs, and you will meet with a healthcare provider for a brief history and physical examination to discuss which IV option is right for you. After that, you will get your IV while you rest comfortably. The entire process generally takes about an hour. If you would like more information, see our ‘How It Works’ page.
3. What is in the IV bag?
The contents of the bag depend on which IV you are receiving. Ingredients may include, but are not limited to, fluids, trace minerals, vitamins, electrolytes, and antioxidants. During the initial consultation with the healthcare provider, you can get a more detailed breakdown of what will be in your IV.
4. How long does the IV take?
The IV will generally take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the type of infusion you receive and your medical history. Most infusions take just under an hour.
5. Why are some of the IV fluids yellow?
Many of our IV bags contain B Complex vitamins that cause the color of the fluids to turn yellow. Some of our IV bags do not contain B Complex vitamins and have a clear appearance.
6. Is the IV painful?
You may feel slight pressure for a brief moment as the nurse is starting your IV. It is similar to having your blood drawn for lab work. After the IV infusion is started, you should not feel any pain.
7. What will I feel during the IV?
You should not feel any pain or discomfort during the IV. You may experience a vitamin taste as soon as the IV is started. You may feel cold while you are receiving your IV, and we offer blankets, tea, and heating packs to help with this. You may also feel that you have to urinate during the IV. The IV fluids are hung on IV poles that you can roll to the restroom while you are getting your infusion.
8. What will I feel after the IV?
What you will feel will depend greatly on a multitude of factors including how dehydrated you are before the IV, the symptoms you are experiencing prior to your IV, nutritional deficiencies, and acute and chronic medical conditions. Most patients report a noticeable change and improvement in symptoms within 24 hours and often times during the infusion itself or shortly thereafter.
9. How often should I get an IV?
During your initial consultation with the healthcare provider, you will discuss an IV regimen best suited to your specific needs. The frequency of IV treatments will be dependant on what you are coming in for. Many patients come weekly or biweekly to maintain hydration and vitamin levels and prevent cold, flu, and fatigue. Others come prior to or after a big event such as an athletic competition, wedding, or big trip. Many patients come before and after surgery and some patients come just when they are feeling fatigued or under the weather. Always ask our medical team if you’re unsure about how often you should be getting IV treatments.
