IV Therapy Q&A

What is intravenous (IV) therapy?

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium

  • Other antioxidants

  • Easier weight loss
  • Fewer nutritional deficiencies

The process of getting IV therapy is relaxing and pain-free, and it may make you feel better immediately after treatment.

Is IV therapy right for me?

Anyone can benefit from IV therapy, but the type of infusion that’s best for you depends on your medical history, health, and unique needs. Apollo Men’s Health specialists check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and often recommend that you undergo blood tests to assess your nutritional status and hormone levels. 

What happens during IV therapy?

During IV therapy, you relax in a comfortable reclining chair. Your Apollo Men’s Health provider then places a very fine needle into a vein in your arm and infuses fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream for fast absorption. Each treatment could take about 20-60 minutes, depending on the type of infusion you receive and your personalized needs. 

What should I expect after the procedure?

After IV infusions, you may have more energy immediately afterward, with continued improvements in the way you feel appearing over the next day or two. Your specialist may also recommend a series of IV therapy treatments, with periodic maintenance sessions as needed, to give you the best outcome. 

Your Apollo Men’s Health specialist will let you know when to schedule your next IV therapy appointment to maintain exceptional long-term health. They may recommend additional treatments, such as hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss, dietary supplements, or human growth hormone (HGH) peptide therapy.
