Vitamin Infusions: What to Expect in the IV Room

Tacia here! Happy March!

Have you ever wondered what to do before you get an IV? 

Did you know that you can prepare? 

The first and most important thing you can do is HYDRATE!! I can’t emphasize this enough! When do you hydrate? I would make sure to drink plenty of water the day before and the day of.  This helps your veins swell so that the person administering the IV (Tacia, Misty or Mariah) finds your vein more easily. Then make sure you drink plenty of water after, so your body can detox. 

Second, make sure to eat something before you come in.  Preferably something high in protein. Sometimes the vitamins and minerals can cause nausea if infused on an empty stomach.  Also, feel free to bring some snacks to have while you are infusing. Infusions can last 2 1/2 hours, so prepare to be here for a while. 

Third, bring something to do.  Bring a book to read or headphones, so that you can listen to or watch  something on your phone…. Don’t forget a charger.  We do play movies in the IV room, but you may not like what is being played. Or you could even bring your favorite blanket and take a nap.

Lastly, WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES! Think about the ability to push up your sleeve.  You don’t want the sleeve to be too tight.  Also… pants.  Think about if you have to use the restroom while on your IV.  How easy is it to pull your pants up and then button them?

Just a few things to consider.

Can’t wait to see you in the IV room!
