Mobile IV Therapy FAQs

Mobile IV Therapy FAQs

If you’re feeling tired, nauseous or have a headache, you’re probably not up for driving to a medical spa or sitting in an emergency room to get IV therapy. Maybe you had too many drinks at your friend’s wedding or feel exhausted from exercising in the heat. Perhaps you’re in your office and need an energy boost ASAP. In any of these cases, you might be considering mobile IV therapy.

Mobile IV therapy means a nurse brings IV drip treatment to your home, office or hotel room. You’ll reap the same benefits of IV therapy as you would in the ER or med spa, but without needing to leave your house, deal with traffic or worry about exposure to germs. Mobile IV therapy can help alleviate many different symptoms of dehydration, hangovers, jet lag and other conditions. You might schedule a mobile IV therapy appointment to rehydrate your body and have glowing skin for a big event.

If you’ve never had mobile IV therapy before, you likely have some questions. This post will share answers to some frequently asked questions and show you how to book an appointment, so you can start to feel better. If you don’t see an answer to your question, please reach out to us, and we’ll be happy to help.

How Long Do IV Drip Treatments Take?

Most IV drip treatments take 40 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the fluid you are receiving and your specific needs. Some packages, such as our NAD+ IV drip package, require up to four hours. 

The correct amount of fluid must enter your bloodstream at a controlled rate, so your body can safely and effectively absorb the treatment. With that in mind, mobile IV therapy is the perfect excuse to set aside some “me” time. Get in your coziest chair, put on your favorite show and let the nurse take care of you. 

How Long Do IV Fluids Stay in the Body?

IV fluids stay in your body until you no longer need them. After you’re hydrated, your body will begin to remove the excess fluids as urine. Various factors affect how quickly this process occurs. For example, if you’re only mildly dehydrated before IV therapy, you’ll likely eliminate the fluids faster than a moderately dehydrated person. Your kidneys also impact how fast your body flushes IV fluids. 

To help you imagine how long you’ll keep IV fluids in your body, picture drinking a glass or two of water. How quickly would you likely need to use the bathroom after drinking? IV hydration works even faster than consuming water because it goes directly to your bloodstream.

Once your body takes everything it needs from the IV fluid, you’ll feel the effects of being fully hydrated and having a restored electrolyte balance, such as an energy boost. You may continue to feel more pep in your step for three to four days afterward.
