Discharge Instructions For IV Nutrient Therapy

How to care for yourself after your IV Nutrient Therapy

✓ Apply pressure to the site for 2 minutes after IV has been removed.

✓ Keep Band-Aid in place for one hour. 

✓ Warm packs and elevating your arm can be used for any bruising at the site.

✓ Cold packs can be used for pain relief and to decrease any swelling at the site.

✓ Any swelling at the injection site should be significantly reduced in 24 hours.

✓ Post IV infusion symptoms are uncommon. Dehydration is the cause of most symptoms and concerns.

  • We encourage you to drink at least one to two 16oz bottles of water after your infusion.

  • If enough water is not consumed, you may experience any of the following symptoms: Headaches, nausea,

       joint pain, blurred vision, cramping (GI and/or muscular), mental confusion or disorientation.

Most patients experience significant overall improvements

  • Better energy

  • Better mental clarity

  • Improved sleep

  • Improvement of their complaints

  • Overall feelings of well-being

Patients commonly report one of two patterns after an IV Vitamin Therapy infusion:

1. Patients generally feel better right away. Due to a busy lifestyle, many people are chronically dehydrated and deficient in vitamins and minerals causing them not to feel well. Once the patient is hydrated and the nutrients are replaced, their symptoms improve quickly.

2. Patients sometimes feel tired or unwell. These patients are generally in the process of detoxifying. When toxins are pulled out of tissues, they re-enter the bloodstream. They remain poisons but they are now on their way OUT instead of on their way IN. Even when patients do not feel well at this stage, the process is one of healing and cleansing. After this period, an overall improvement in one's sense of well-being is generally reported

Call Rejuvenate U Wellness Clinic or your Primary Care Physician for:

  • Any symptoms you are not comfortable with

  • If any of the following are progressively worsening after your IV infusion:

Significant swelling over the IV site

Redness over the vein that is increasing in size

Pain in the vein/arm that is not improving over an 8-12 hour period.

Headache that does not resolve with increased hydration or over-the-counter pain relievers like Aspirin, Acetaminophen, or Ibuprofen.

 

               

Please call 911 if you feel like you are having a life-threatening emergency.
