Is IV Hydration Therapy Worth the Money?
Despite being an astounding success, the worth of IV hydration therapy is subjective.

The most common reason for getting IV hydration therapy is to help cure hangovers.
How To Prepare for Your Visit
Before going to your appointment, it is best to prepare yourself. Your clothing should be loose enough to easily roll up your sleeves, so the catheter can be inserted smoothly. If you take any medications, it is best to check with your doctor beforehand. Antihistamines, like Zyrtec and Allegra, and decongestants such as Afrin and Vicks Sinex should be avoided on the day of your appointment. It is also in your best interest to avoid consuming alcohol and caffeine.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The effects of IV hydration therapy can last anywhere between a couple of hours to a few days. More specifically, the fluids typically last in your body for a few hours upon absorption. The electrolytes and minerals, however, can potentially stay within your body for months. How long the results last depends on your metabolic rate, the current state of your health, and your hydration levels.
Pros and Cons of IV Hydration Therapy
IV hydration therapy comes with many pros and a few cons. The first and most notable benefit is that it is the quickest way to fill your body with essential nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants. IV hydration therapy is also reported to help treat certain medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease.
It can also help improve your cardiovascular health depending on what is in the drip bag. If you have any wounds, IV hydration therapy can speed up the recovery process if the drip bag contains vitamin C, zinc, arginine, and glutathione.
As for the cons, there is a very small chance you could develop an infection. When the skin is punctured, it becomes more vulnerable to pathogens. The second con is possibly experiencing itchiness, bruising, or redness around the injection site. Although this may sound a little problematic, it is actually a sign your immune system is working the way it should.
