Intravenous (IV) vitamin infusions provide a minimally invasive treatment for various conditions, including dehydration, jet lag, and hangovers. At Prime Medi Spa in Danbury, Connecticut, Dr. Z. Michael Taweh offers IV vitamin infusions to adults. Vitamin infusions can balance your nutrient levels so you look and feel your best.

IV vitamin infusions administer vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals directly into your bloodstream with an IV drip. An IV drip is a saline (saltwater) solution mixed with various nutrients.
The drip connects to a catheter attached to a very thin needle. Dr. Taweh inserts the needle into a vein in your arm and the solution slowly drips into your bloodstream over 45-60 minutes.
IV vitamin infusions let your body absorb significantly more nutrients than taking supplements orally. When you take vitamins with a glass of water they have to pass through your digestive system first. By the time they break down, your body only absorbs about 50% of the benefits. An IV, on the other hand, lets your cells absorb much more nutrition (about 90%).
At PrimeMediSpa, Dr. Taweh uses vitamin infusions to treat various medical conditions, including:
Some people undergo IV vitamin infusions as a form of detox. The treatment helps clear your body of toxins and free radicals, so you can feel your best.
Before recommending an IV vitamin infusion, Dr. Taweh reviews your medical records, asks about your treatment goals, and orders blood work. He sends your blood work to a nearby lab that analyzes it for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies.
After receiving the results of your test, Dr. Taweh formulates an IV vitamin infusion that aligns with your needs. Regardless of your goals, most IV vitamin infusions contain vitamin C and several B vitamins. Vitamin C helps boost your immune system, while B vitamins contribute to various bodily processes, including digestion, brain function, and metabolism.
IV vitamin infusion therapy averages 60-90 minutes.
When you arrive at Prime MediSpa, Dr. Taweh has you sit in a comfortable reclining chair. He cleans your arm with a sterile solution and carefully inserts a needle into a vein in the crease of your elbow. Once treatment begins, you can lie down and take a nap, watch TV, or read a book.
After the drip is finished, Dr. Taweh removes the needle, bandages your arm, and provides recovery instructions.
