How Long Does IV Therapy Take?


Got questions about IV therapy? We have answers! Take a look at this helpful guide for more information about the timelines regarding IV therapy..

How Long Does IV Therapy Take?

The typical time required for IV therapy is between 15 and 90 minutes. On average, you can expect this process to be around 30 minutes, but this depends on your age and weight, plus the chosen IV type. Although some IV sessions use a slow-drip technique, the total visit shouldn't last more than two hours at the maximum. You can choose from a wide range of treatments that address concerns like colds, dehydration and some surgery recoveries. For example, the popular Myers' Cocktail takes around 45 minutes.

Through an IV service, you can expect to receive supplemental nutrients and vitamins that increase wellness. A nurse may add extra antioxidants based on any symptoms you have. That said, your session should be over and done with after an hour and a half or less.

How Long Does the IV Take to Work?

Most patients feel a difference as soon as the nurse completes the treatment. If it's your first time, you may feel more immediate results. You can still enjoy significant, positive effects with continued use, as consistent IV sessions can supply necessary hydration along with numerous other health benefits.

In any case, IV therapy begins working quickly to give your health a boost, even if you don't feel it right away.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

Many individuals say that their IV therapy results last for three to four days at a time. However, it's important to note that everyone has a different experience. One patient may enjoy more consistent, noticeable effects than another patient based on how their body responds to treatment. Each person has a separate physicality, but IV sessions supply wellness advantages no matter what.

If you disengage from strenuous activities like intense workouts, you may observe lengthier effects. On the other hand, if you work out heavily, you may feel dehydrated sooner rather than later. The length of the perceivable effect depends on your daily life. You can always schedule another appointment when you need a hydration or vitamin boost.
