Vitamin IV Infusion Therapy Q & A

What is vitamin IV infusion therapy?

Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy is a method for delivering important vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream.

When you take vitamins orally, they first go through the normal digestive process, and your body absorbs only a small amount of the nutrients. By delivering the vitamins directly into your bloodstream through an IV, your body receives the full benefit of the supplements.

At Delmarva Pain and Spine Center, Dr. Patel offers several types of vitamin infusion therapies, and she can recommend the right combination of nutrients based on your needs, such as:

  • VitaminDrip Original
  • VitaminDrip Hydration
  • VitaminDrip Energy
  • VitaminDrip Recovery


In addition to essential vitamins and minerals, the drips contain fluids, amino acids, and antioxidants to optimize the benefit of your therapy. There are about a dozen formulas Dr. Patel offers to address your symptoms and enhance your health.

Why should I consider vitamin IV infusion therapy?

Vitamin IV infusion therapy is an effective way to maximize your general health and ensure you’re getting the essential nutrients your body needs to function.

Dr. Patel can also tailor your IV vitamin therapy to treat conditions like:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Hangovers
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cold and flu symptoms


Vitamin infusion therapy is also beneficial for relieving symptoms of sinus and respiratory tract infections.

If you’re planning to travel, vitamin infusion therapy can reduce your risk of getting sick while you’re on your trip.

What can I expect during my first IV vitamin infusion?

At Delmarva Pain and Spine Center, you receive IV vitamin infusion treatments on an outpatient basis. As part of your initial evaluation, Dr. Patel reviews your medical history, existing health, and symptoms to determine which therapy is right for you.

During your first therapy appointment, you can expect to relax in a comfortable chair while Dr. Patel inserts an IV line and begins administering the vitamin infusion. Throughout your therapy, Dr. Patel monitors your heart rate and other vitals for your safety.

It can take 1-2 hours to complete treatment, and then you can expect to resume your usual activities. Many people feel the benefits of an IV infusion immediately and experience a continued reduction in their symptoms for several days afterward.

Dr. Patel may recommend additional infusion therapies to help you maintain good health and keep you symptom-free.
