6 Things To Do Before Your Vitamin IV Appointment
By Dr. Amauri Caversan
Whether it’s your first or regular IV vitamin drip, there are a few things to do before each appointment. Follow this checklist to make sure your vitamin drip runs smoothly:
1. Get as hydrated as possible
Isn’t a vitamin IV drip supposed to rehydrate you? Absolutely! But the more dehydrated you are, the smaller your veins will be (which hide when we’re low on fluids). We want to make sure your veins are as visible and palpable as possible to make the best out of your IV therapy session. With that, drink, drink and drink water before your appointment begins!
2. Don’t come hungry
Eat something, anything! It’s important to keep your blood sugar levels up. Some of the vitamins and minerals in your IV drip could lower your blood sugar and blood pressure. So if you arrive at your appointment with an empty stomach, your vitamin drip could cause light-headedness afterwards.
3. Get moving
After a heart-pumping workout, do your arms appear more “vascular” than usual? Here’s why: as we increase our bodily movement, we generate heat; the more heat we generate, the more our vessels dilate. Moving around before your vitamin drip appointment helps ensure a successful IV treatment. Here’s an easy fix: park a few blocks away and walk over to the clinic!
4. Try to avoid antihistamines and decongestants
If you can, refrain from antihistamines and decongestants before your IV. Indeed, these meds relieve allergy symptoms and alleviate headaches, but they have a constricting effect on your blood vessels. This can cause you to experience a challenging IV treatment. But if you must take these over-the-counter meds, please do these things before your appointment: get hydrated, eat a snack and do a quick jog around the block.
5. Relax and breathe
Once you’re seated in a lounge chair and waiting to be hooked up, take a few minutes to relax. Deep breathing will help release tension and prepare your body for your treatment. Try five deep belly breaths like this:
● Place one hand over your chest and one over your belly.
● Watch your belly hand expand outward with each breath.
● If your belly hand isn’t expanding outward and your chest hand is rising instead, focus on your belly expanding outward as you breathe in.
6. Don’t worry — there’s nothing to worry about!
Most patients report very little pain. When the small needle is withdrawn, a soft catheter stays in place for the rest of the treatment. Depending on the infusion, you may get an energy boost or a relaxing effect. At the IV Therapy Lounge, often patients report a sense of calmness during the IV treatment and a good night’s sleep in the evening.
Take note: The length of treatment depends on the IV formula being administered. The shortest IV is the Quickie, which takes about 20-30 minutes. Most of our formulas (including Energy IV) take 60-90 minutes, except for the high-dose vitamin C IVs, which may take 2-4 hours.

Why do I need to take blood tests before my first IV vitamin treatment?
Generally speaking, most patients can tolerate most IV nutrient drips. However, each patient is still required to undergo blood testing before his or her first IV treatment. Here’s why: occasionally, a patient may be allergic to a nutrient. As a result, he or she shouldn’t receive any IV treatments which contain that particular nutrient. Plus, if you have kidney disease, heart disease or high blood pressure, some IV treatments may not be suitable for you.
Some of the blood tests that are required before receiving IV therapy include:
● Complete Blood Count (CBC) and Differential
● Kidney Function Panel
● Liver Function Panel
● Lipid Panel
Take Note: If you’re receiving an IV that contains high-dose vitamin C, you must take a glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) test. Patients with G6PD deficiencies cannot metabolize high levels of intravenous vitamin C, which is why the clinic tests your blood before administering high vitamin C doses.
Overall, IV therapy is very safe and well tolerated. Do you have more questions about IV vitamin drips and blood testing? Click here to contact Dr. Amauri Caversan’s office.
IV THERAPY ADVANTAGES
DIRECT DELIVERY OF NUTRIENTS THROUGH THE BLOOD STREAM
With intravenous vitamin treatment, when your infusion begins, vitamins, minerals, as well as other nutrients are rapidly circulated by means of your bloodstream and delivered to cells, where they can be instantly accessible to be used. It’s like “direct deposit”; in IV therapy treatments, nutrients does not wait to be cleared by the digestive system as well as the liver.
LESS SIDE EFFECTS
Vitamin IV therapy avoids the gut and intestines. What this means is no upset stomach or intestinal problems like cramps, nausea, or diarrhea, which occasionally result from taking high doses of certain vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C and magnesium.
HIGH DOSE THERAPY ALLOWED THAT IS NEEDED FOR MORE POSITIVE TREATMENT RESULT
Studies have shown there are particular blood or tissue concentrations of certain nutrients that should be attained in order about them to be pharmacologically active. Vitamin C is an example of this type of nutrient. Many studies reveal that increased concentrations of Vitamin C are needed in the serum and intracellular fluid before it could exert its beneficial effects.
These elevated concentrations can’t be accomplished by taking oral nutrients; the majority of vitamins and minerals taken in pill or liquid form is eliminated, with very little really absorbed into the bloodstream. Complicating this further is that lots of patients have conditions that hinder their intestinal absorption in the very first place. Eventually, as noted above, majority of patients cannot withstand high doses of specific vitamins and minerals because they cause upset stomachs. Thus, only IV vitamin treatment can straightaway deliver pharmacologically effective doses of the essential nutrients.
