Frequently Asked Questions on IV Therapy

Your Questions Answered

WHAT IS IV THERAPY?

IV stands for intravenous therapy and it's a method to deliver essential fluids, vitamins and nutrients through the blood vessels. It's the fastest way to get the body what it needs. It starts with our nurses mixing optimal amounts of vitamins and nutrients in an IV bag  and administering it at your your home. IV Therapy can address many  underlying health issues, but it can also be supplemental for healthy adults who want to maintain high levels of potency, immunity, energy and mood.  

HOW DOES IV THERAPY WORK?

Our RNs (Registered Nurses) insert a thin plastic tube into the vein. The drip bag is then connected to the tube to deliver the mix of vitamins, amino acids, anti-oxidants and fluids. Majority of drips take 45 to 60 minutes to administer; however, there are some vitamins which need to be pushed slowly and may take longer than 1 hour. When booking online, you'll be able to see our available schedule and estimated amount of time that it will take to complete the IV. 

WHERE IS BEST IV THERAPY LOCATED?

We are a mobile service and we provide IV therapy in Santa Clarita to patients in the comfort of their home. Our nurses cover the entire LA region but are based in Santa Clarita, California. Our prices for IV include the 25 miles radius around Santa Clarita and Sun Fernando valleys. Anything beyond this area can be serviced with an additional surcharge. 

IS IV THERAPY SAFE?

IV Therapy is painless and safe. All the vitamins are FDA approved  and are administered by registered nurses under the guidance of medical doctors. There are definitely cases when a specific mix of vitamins and nutrients should be avoided when other medication is also taken. As part of the booking service, you'll have an option to provide all the information for us to review and determine the best mix of vitamins. 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IV THERAPY?

IV Therapy benefits may include increased energy, metabolism, weight loss, immunity, detoxification, memory improvement, anti-aging, beautification, and more. Vitamin deficiency is one of the leading reasons for various allergies, lower immunity, lower metabolism, high stress, etc. The best approach to address this is to take supplements, but if a fix is needed quickly, then IV Therapy may be the easiest option. 

WHAT ARE CUSTOM IV DRIPS?

All our treatments are customizable and you can add any of the vitamins available within the Custom Drips section. Feel free to request a custom drip online and we'll provide the total cost and advise on the best options available. 

CAN I ADJUST THE DOSAGE IN MY IV DRIP?

Best IV provides the maximum dosage of vitamins in our treatments to save you money and time. We are happy to share the dosages for each blend, but be confident that we don't skip on anything. For example, the amount of Vitamin C in Myer's Cocktail is 3000mg which is a good amount of Vitamin C; but it can be further adjusted to 6000mg. If higher dose is needed, we can schedule a session where Vitamin C is pushed alone. 

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL IV DRIP TAKE?

Most drips will take less than 1 hours to administer. NAD IV normally takes 2-3 hours for the half dose and 4-6 hours for the full dose. 

DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION FOR IV THERAPY?

Yes, IV Therapy is administered with a doctor's approval. Best IV works with multiple doctors and NPs; you won't need to receive a doctor's prescription on your own as we'll review your request and medical history with our doctors. Once approved, the nurse will come at the specific time to administer the IV Drip.
