The dangers of taking an IV
This form of treatment isn’t suitable for everyone. Someone with congestive heart failure cannot take a lot of fluid since that may cause strain on his body and worsen his health condition. Additionally, someone already taking other prescribed medicines or having allergies must also consult a doctor before using this therapy.
By puncturing your skin, you are risking the chance of an infection in the area. So one must make sure the needle that is administered is sterile (i.e. germ free).Otherwise infections such as fever, redness, chills, swelling or pain may happen at the injection site. A poorly placed or delivered needle can also cause complications such as, air embolism (when air bubble enters the veins- this can be fatal), hematoma (when blood enters the tissues) and infiltration (when fluids enter the tissues).
The question of whether or not you should use such a treatment depends on you medical condition, if you suffer from any of the above mentioned conditions please do not use an IV drip without consulting you regular physician. If it is an emergency situation and a medicine or a fluid needs to be immediately injected into yours bloodstream, then please let the doctor do so.
On the other hand, if the reason is not medical and is either to boost your system or enhance you beauty or athletic ability please make sure speak to one of our licensed pharmacists.
