Common Uses for IV Drip Therapy

IV drip therapy is a way to deliver medication and fluids to patients through their veins. Since it's being injected directly into the veins, the medication and fluids are able to have their effect much quicker. Below are some common uses for IV drip therapy.

Hangover Relief

There are several side effects of drinking alcohol, and a hangover is probably the most immediate one. Following a night of drinking, you might experience excessive photosensitivity, dry mouth, pounding headache, and an upset tummy. These symptoms can make it impossible to do your daily tasks. Fortunately, IV therapy can be used to relieve hangovers.

The primary purpose of IV therapy for hangovers is to help rehydrate the body. The fluid also contains vitamins to boost your energy levels and some other medication to alleviate nausea, heartburn, and headaches. Vitamins also have other uses. For instance, Vitamin B12 is crucial for a healthy nervous and circulatory system.

Athletic Performance Recovery

After an intense athletic performance, you can be left dehydrated and weak. In such instances, IV drip therapy can be beneficial to help you recover from exertion. Several components will be administered for such purposes. These include fluids for rehydration together with vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids. The latter will help restore your energy and repair any tissue damage that might have occurred during exercise.

Immune System Support

Your immune system serves a crucial role in fighting off diseases and keeping your body healthy. However, there are instances where you will still fall sick. Whether it's just flu or bad diarrhea, IV therapy can provide immune system support. IV fluid for your immune system usually contains several vitamins and minerals. These are pretty useful for immune support, and they also reduce the chances of you catching more bugs.

Cold and Flu Relief

If you find yourself down with a bad cold or flu, IV drip therapy might be just what you need. Using IV therapy when you have a cold or flu can help you stay hydrated and energetic. The drip usually contains several vitamins and minerals which can give your immune system a boost and help it fight off infection. Apart from that, it might also include several anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medications. This will help alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms that come with a cold or flu.

Pregnancy Symptoms Alleviation

There is a lot of stress that comes with the changes undergone by the body during pregnancy. Most pregnant women end up experiencing morning sickness as a result. This can be pretty stressful, especially when one is trying to work. IV drip therapy can be administered to pregnant women to keep them hydrated and alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of morning sickness.

These are some of the uses of IV drip therapy. With each use, the fluid components are adjusted to suit the particular purpose of the drip. Usually, the fluid contains vitamins and medication.
