Infusion therapy is a new and innovative approach to treating migraine that provides hope for many patients living with migraine which does not improve with oral medications or other forms of treatment.
Millions of Americans suffer from migraines at some point in their lives. Migraines can interfere with your ability to work and relate to others. People experiencing migraines often seclude themselves in a dark room as light and sound tends to make the symptoms worse. IV infusion therapy is a convenient and easy way to get relief from such debilitating migraine symptoms.
IV infusions contain a combination of electrolytes, vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory medication, and anti-nausea medication that help flush out the toxins and harmful free radicals, rehydrate the body, and provide relief of accompanying symptoms such as nausea and vomiting. The specific combination of the medications will vary depending on your specific symptoms.
IV infusion therapy can be administered in the outpatient setting and takes not more than 30-45 minutes. Most patients report rapid relief of symptoms from IV infusions because the medication is delivered directly into your bloodstream.
If you have refractory migraine headaches that do not respond to oral medications or other forms of treatment or rebound migraine headaches which occur from medication overuse, you may be a candidate for IV infusion therapy.
