IV Infusion Therapy Q&A

What is IV infusion therapy?

IV infusion therapy is a method of receiving fluids, nutrients, or medications intravenously. At Comprehensive Arthritis Care, the team of rheumatology specialists treat all types of arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.

They offer a broad spectrum of infusible drugs that can relieve symptoms and help prevent disease progression through IV therapy in their state-of-the art on-site infusion suite.

What conditions respond to IV infusion therapy? 

The Comprehensive Arthritis Care team may recommend IV infusion therapy for many conditions, such as:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus 
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Gout
  • Pseudogout

Most people with rheumatic conditions start with oral (and sometimes injected) medications, but if that approach doesn’t provide adequate symptom relief, the team might recommend IV infusions.

What do IV infusions contain?

IV infusions include complex compounds that are different in each therapy. 

Infusible drugs can be administered via IV for rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other autoimmune diseases.

What are the advantages of IV infusion therapy?

With IV infusible drugs, the medication enters the bloodstream and may help with the symptoms sooner. Not all patients will respond the same way to IV inufsion therapy.

IV infusion therapy allows you to receive drugs that aren’t available in other forms. And, with IV infusions, the medication enters your bloodstream immediately so it’s available to start relieving your symptoms.

You’ll relax in a comfortable recliner during treatment. You can use the high-speed internet, read a book, or take a nap as you receive the medication through a vein in your arm. There are even snacks available during infusions. 

How long does IV infusion therapy take?
