Frequently Asked Questions
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, our infusions are safe. The ingredients are sourced from reliable, reputable and accredited compounding pharmacies and suppliers. The IVs are chosen and administered by our licensed and skilled IV specialists.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Side effects rarely occur but if they do they are usually minor and short lived. Bruising, slight bleeding from the site and soreness can occur. Some people report feeling cooling of the arm, a metallic taste in their mouth, maybe a flushed feeling, and a vitamin smell in their urine- all of these are normal. Less common side effects are risk of infection and allergic reactions. Our skilled nursing staff are trained to identify and treat any and all side effects.
IS THERE A DOCTOR PRESENT?
The Fix has a licensed physician. Our Medical Director oversees the operations of IV administration. However he is not on-site. One of our professional, licensed, and skilled RNs will administer and monitor you while receiving your infusion. They will be able to answer all of your questions or concerns.
ARE THERE REACTIONS TO THE IV IF I AM ON MEDICATIONS?
There are very few medications that interact with the IV therapy. Our nursing staff will take your medication and health history in order to make sure there are no potential interactions with what is in the IV.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A FIX?
Most people notice increased energy and feeling better overall. Some people report a vitamin taste in their mouth and strong vitamin smell in their urine, but that’s totally normal. That is how the body eliminates the nutrients once the body metabolizes them. You may see dramatic effects after the first IV depending on your nutritional hydration status. Those who get regular IVs will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to maximize their hydration nutritional balance.
HOW FREQUENTLY CAN I GET A FIX?
Depending on the infusion, some clients get a Fix up to twice a week, once a week, or once a month. We recommend getting an IV when you feel the need to boost your energy levels, travel frequently, or just want to get back to your normal, productive self.
DO WE ACCEPT HEALTH INSURANCE?
Currently health insurance plans will not cover our services. HOWEVER, you may use most Health Savings Accounts (HSA) to pay!
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF IV VITAMINS Vs. ORAL VITAMINS?
Daily supplements taken by mouth are only partially absorbed. With intravenous nutrition, the nutrients enter the bloodstream at higher, safe concentrations allowing direct delivery to the body’s cells. This allows the body to absorb 100% of these nutrients and achieve maximum results.
WHAT IS IN THE IV?
The IV contains sterile fluid and the appropriate additives that can be any combination of vitamins and nutrients.
HOW LONG DOES AN IV TAKE?
Our IVs typically take 30 minutes to administer. This can vary depending on the specific FIX & options selected. Our goal is to administer your infusion at a safe and comfortable rate.
IS THE PROCESS PAINFUL?
Typically no. Most clients find the treatment quite comfortable and relaxing. Some clients experience mild aching during the treatment or minor pain sensation during the needle insertion.
WHAT IS THE MOST POPULAR FIX AND WHY?
The Myer’s Fix is an all time favorite! It is the ultimate vitamin infusion that contains the most studied vitamin mixture created by Dr. John Meyer in the 1960s The Myer’s Fix contains high dose multi vitamins for optimizing your immunity, neuro-function, metabolic energy, and cell recovery. It has been studied in terms of efficacy for treatment of symptoms related to multiple chronic fatigue and other debilitating disorders.
HOW LONG DOES A FIX TYPICALLY LAST?
Depending on the Fix chosen, after an IV infusion, the vitamins can help keep you energized for 1-3 weeks.
