Intravenous vitamin drips have been gaining popularity in treating various conditions.
Some other concerns are that the insertions of an IV can be unsafe if not inserted correctly. IVs are invasive and are not risk-free. Being aware of the possibilities before making a home call is important. There is a possibility of infection, inflamed or blocked vein, and even possible allergic reaction to an ingredient in the therapy.
Ensure that you select a doctor, nurse, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner to assist in your therapy needs. They should be able to go over all the risks and precautions needed before the treatment. Be sure they are following sanitary protocols and are not tampering with the drip.
It is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Weight out all the pros and cons to make an informative decision to move forward with this type of treatment. Although it can be a simple and effective treatment, it should only be used when medically necessary. If you choose to use this form of therapy, select a clean, viable source trusted by the medical community.
