IV therapy has long been a popular option for people to receive intravenous infusions to help prevent or treat symptoms of dehydration, but it often comes with the arduous process of coordinating time off work for appointments, costly medical visits, and frustrating wait times.

What if you could enjoy the benefits of IV therapy from the convenience of your own home?

The technology is possible, and with our experienced mobile IV therapy practitioners, you don’t have to visit the hospital for every infusion. 

In this guide, you’ll learn about what this new mobile IV therapy is and how it can help you receive the treatment you need, all from the comfort of your own home.

What is IV Therapy

At the most basic level, intravenous therapy, more commonly known as IV therapy, has become more popular in recent years for being able to provide fluids directly to the body to help combat dehydration, as well as provide fluid medications or other substances directly into the body’s muscular system or bloodstream. This direct delivery into the body allows the fluids or medication to move quickly and provide fast relief.

Over time, this type of therapy has become popular for relieving hangovers, treating migraines, and even reducing the recovery time of illnesses like the flu. 

While some individuals are skeptical of the benefits of plain saline drips, there are plenty of legitimate medical benefits to receiving medicine or vitamins this way.

The most common vitamins and fluids administered through IV therapy are saline, dextrose, vitamin B, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, antibiotics, or antioxidants. Some medications for migraines or thyroid disease have also been approved for use in IV therapy, allowing patients to receive breakthrough care and fast relief of symptoms.

Can I Get IV Fluids at Home?

Yes, you can get IV fluids at home through a registered mobile IV therapy clinic. The process is fast and easy to do so long as there is a mobile IV clinic near you.

This treatment, either given as an injection or a drip fluid, must be administered by a healthcare professional which typically limits the patient to receiving treatments through a hospital. 

Fortunately, mobile IV therapy services have become popular in recent years as a way for patients to receive their saline or medicated IV therapy at home.

These medical professionals will travel to your home with all the equipment necessary to administer the treatment and monitor you for a short time after the treatment has been completed.

To receive medicated IV therapy treatment in the comfort of your own home or office, you should talk with your doctor to determine whether or not it’s safe to have your medication administered outside of the hospital. 

Alternatively, you can call the mobile IV therapy clinic to verify that your medicated IV can be administered outside of the hospital. Typically, saline drips and non-medicated IV therapy such as those infused with vitamins or dextrose do not need a special prescription from your doctor.

The advent of mobile IV therapy has made it completely possible to receive IV treatments from the comfort of your own home, office, or anywhere else you happen to be at the time. (1

IV vitamin therapy in particular has grown in popularity in recent years as a way for users to experience fast-acting relief of many different ailments, or even boost energy levels throughout the day so they feel more like themselves.

These are but a few of the health issues IV vitamin therapy promises to solve or improve through an infusion of various vitamins and minerals.


Mobile IV therapy in particular is beneficial because it allows the user to access all the benefits of IV therapy from the comfort of their own home. Staying healthy has never been so easy or convenient as it is with mobile services.

  • Easy and Convenient
  • Energy Boosting Self-Care
  • Stress-Free Medication
  • No Waiting Room
  • Less Appointment Wait Time

With mobile IV therapy, the cost of travel and procedure is wrapped into a single price, and with valid medical reasons, your insurance may even cover the costs.

Benefits of Mobile IV Therapy

Yes, mobile IV therapy is completely safe. Like in a hospital, it is administered by healthcare professionals, and you will be monitored during and shortly after the treatment to ensure that everything goes smoothly. 

In many cases, mobile IV therapy is a much safer way of having IV vitamin or medication treatments done, as it is more dedicated attention and care without the stress of traveling or visiting the hospital in the first place.

Your doctor will be able to prescribe any special medications for the treatment, such as migraine medications or anti-nausea, but most IV treatments are vitamin-based saline solutions that pose no known health risks in individuals.

Is Mobile IV Safe?

Common Uses of IV Therapy

There are plenty of beneficial uses for mobile IV therapy that range in purpose. (2) Most people tend to use IV therapy as a way to receive medications, or as a form of fast-acting self-care.

What if you could cure a hangover, boost your immune system, fight lethargy, and get healthier skin all in one shot? That’s what vitamin IV drips promise.

Below are some of the most common reasons why patients request this service:

Hangover Relief

Hangover Relief

Whether indulging is a common occurrence or a once-in-a-while thing, hangovers are difficult to deal with. Lower light, coffee, and water just don’t always cut it. With mobile IV therapy, our healthcare professionals will come to you to help you overcome the unpleasant hangover symptoms. Since the solution reaches your bloodstream faster, you’ll enjoy fast-acting relief and improved energy levels in just a few minutes. You can also opt for medications to alleviate nausea, heartburn, or headaches.

Athletic Recovery

Athletic Recovery

An intense workout or athletic performance can leave your body in desperate need to repair itself. Your muscles might be sore, you’ll become more tired, and your body will enter a phase of low function while it repairs itself. With IV therapy, however, you can not only keep yourself feeling top-notch but also reduce the time you spend sore as well as improve how quickly your muscles repair themselves. Good hydration is key to maintaining optimal athletic performance.

Flu and Cold Relief

Flu and Cold Relief

Sometimes, a common cold or the flu can knock you down hard, but with proper hydration with added vitamins and minerals, you can boost your immune system and energy levels, getting you back to feeling like yourself sooner. IV therapy is also a great preventative during cold and flu season to help keep you feeling your best even when the risk of getting sick is higher.

Immune Support

Immune Support

Sometimes, your immune system needs help to fight off various infections or injuries. When you’re not feeling your best, your immune system might struggle to keep up with the rest of your body. IV therapy is a great way to provide the body with fast-acting vitamins, minerals, and hydration to boost your immune system and help you fight off infections, or act as a preventative measure to keep your immune system at its best.

Pregnancy Symptom Relief

Pregnancy Symptom Relief

Your health and the health of your baby are important, but it can be difficult to manage with the onset of difficult pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness. Nausea, vomiting, migraines, and other unpleasant sensations can lead to increased stress and can affect your entire day, as well as your overall health and well-being. Mobile IV therapy provides a convenient and fast way to help you re-hydrate and can even provide fast-acting vitamins and minerals, and even anti-nausea medication.

Migraine Relief

Migraine Relief

The cause of your migraines may not be known, but there are still ways to relieve or prevent the symptoms. Migraines can be difficult to predict with a variety of environmental or biological factors at play, such as stress, bright light, screen time, hormones, or other triggers. Whether you receive your migraine medication through an IV, certain vitamins and minerals, or just a saline solution, mobile IV therapy can provide an effective and convenient way of receiving your regular treatments.



Your body functions best when it has enough water to keep all its internal processes working correctly. Water is one of the most important things you can have to keep yourself healthy, however, it can also be difficult to re-hydrate yourself if you’ve gone too long without hydration, or if other medications are preventing your body from being able to properly absorb the water you are drinking. If you struggle to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, IV therapy can help provide fast-acting relief.

How Often Should You Do IV Therapy?

Depending on the type of IV treatment you receive, a generally healthy person should only need to receive IV therapy on an as-needed basis. Alternatively, for ongoing treatments, once or twice a month should be sufficient. 

If you are receiving any medications with the IV, your doctor will prescribe a recommended timeline for you to follow.

How Long Does Mobile IV Therapy Take?

The specific infusion given can change the amount of time it takes to safely provide an infusion since most treatments are tailored to individual patients’ bodyweight, fluid amount needs, and how quickly certain medications or vitamins can be administered. 

On average, a standard drip infusion can take anywhere from 40 to 80 minutes once the IV has been inserted and started.

How Much Does Mobile IV Therapy Cost?

How much mobile IV therapy costs depend largely on the medications or vitamins included in the infusion, as well as the distance traveled to provide treatment. At a hospital, IV infusions can cost anywhere from $300 to $900 per treatment depending on the medication administered and the length of the infusion. 

Most mobile IV therapy clinics will have packages that you can purchase that allow you to choose the type of treatment you receive and for what purpose. These packages can range anywhere from $200 per infusion to $500, making them much less expensive than a hospital visit in most cases as well as having the convenience of them delivered to you.

Additional medications such as anti-inflammatories or anti-nausea medications may incur an additional cost.

Overall Pros and Cons of IV Therapy

IV therapy has its pros and cons like any other treatment, and you must understand the intended purpose of any infusion, as well as how it might benefit you and what the risks are. 

Many mobile IV therapy clinics are happy to help you understand the process and the benefits or risks that might come with an infusion.


  • Fast-acting vitamin distribution
  • Symptom relief with intravenous medication
  • Boosts energy levels 
  • A great supplement for treating health conditions, or the symptoms of health conditions
  • Boosts the immune system response
  • Better absorption of fluids, vitamins, or medications that have poor oral absorption

There are very few cons to speak of in the mobile IV therapy space, as many of the treatment options are low-risk to begin with, such as the administration of vitamins or anti-nausea medication. 

Does IV Therapy Have Risks?

There are a few potential risks to IV therapy, just as there would be within a hospital setting. Many people who receive medicated IV therapy only do so after they have received it at a hospital setting before to ensure they react well to all medications.


  • Bruising at the IV site
  • Rare infection at the IV site
  • Vein inflammation
  • Vitamin overdose

A mobile IV staff member will monitor you for signs of any potential side effects of treatment before leaving the location. If you notice any side effects after the healthcare professional has left, contact the mobile IV clinic for advice; if symptoms of an allergic reaction or severe side effect is present, seek immediate medical attention from your regular healthcare professional.
