The stomach flu is a common illness, and nearly everyone who has had it would agree that it is an illness that you want to recover from as soon as possible.
This article will describe what a stomach flu IV is, how it can help, why it is better than over-the-counter or DIY remedies, and how in-home treatments work.
What is a stomach flu IV?
An IV is an intravenous method of administering fluids and medications. A stomach flu IV, in particular, is made up of various fluids, electrolytes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin B12, vitamin C, Pepcid, and Zofran. These ingredients are targeted to treat the stomach flu symptoms and help you recover.
How can it help?
Each ingredient in the stomach flu IV bag provides relief in different ways. The fluids and electrolytes hydrate you. The B-complex vitamins renew your energy. Vitamin B12 reduces feelings of nausea. Vitamin C works to give your immune system a boost while you fight off your stomach flu.
IV therapy vs. over-the-counter and DIY remedies
IV therapy delivers fluids and medication directly into your bloodstream. This allows the treatment to take effect more quickly because oral remedies need to first go through your digestive system. Also, drinking fluids and taking liquid oral medications can make nausea worse.
How do in-home treatments work?
In-home treatments are offered for simplicity and ease. A medical professional arrives at your home and administers the IV without the need to wait in a crowded waiting room.
