IV Hydration Q&A

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration is a treatment that infuses nutrients and fluids into your bloodstream for quick absorption. The treatment hydrates you faster than what’s possible from drinking fluids, and it delivers the right amount of ingredients needed to maximize electrolyte balance. The IV MD experts tailor each IV hydration treatment based on your unique situation.

What are the advantages of IV hydration?

IV hydration therapy at IV MD offers an array of health benefits, including:

  • Improved hydration
  • More energy
  • Faster healing 
  • Reduced pain
  • Fewer headaches
  • Healthier skin, hair, and nails
  • Better electrolyte balance
  • Improved sports performance
  • Faster recovery after sports training
  • Stronger immune system
  • Less fatigue
  • Better overall health
  • Improved quality of life

IV MD offers infusions containing fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and sometimes medications to ease pain or diminish other bothersome symptoms. 

Which IV hydration treatment is best for me?

After discussing your symptoms, medical history, medications, and lifestyle, Dr. Mandelbaum and his team determine which IV hydration treatment best suits your needs. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood testing. The IV MD specialists then tailor a personalized hydration therapy treatment plan to meet your needs.

What happens during IV hydration?

During IV hydration therapy, you rest comfortably on a reclining chair. You can read, relax, nap, listen to music, browse the internet, or talk on the phone. Your specialist gently inserts a very fine needle into one of your veins to infuse fluids and other ingredients into your bloodstream. The treatment might last 30-60 minutes or longer, as every patient has unique needs.

What can I expect after treatment?

You might feel better right away after undergoing IV hydration, with additional improvements appearing over the next few hours and days. You might have slight redness at the needle insertion site, though this side effect is temporary. You may resume your typical daily routine immediately after treatment. 

How often do I need IV hydration?

Dr. Mandelbaum determines how often to undergo IV hydration based on your lifestyle, health, and goals. You might be a candidate for this exceptional treatment weekly, every other week, monthly, or on an as-needed basis to stay hydrated — particularly if you’re an athlete or live in a hot-weather climate.
