IV for Nausea

We all know that upset feeling in the pit of our stomach, and nobody likes it. Nausea makes it hard to function throughout the day, whether it’s a mild queasiness or a sharp pain that induces vomiting.

When you’re suffering from nausea, IV fluids for vomiting can help ease that rumbling in your stomach and make you feel like your old self again. Not only will it ease that queasy feeling in your stomach and make you less likely to throw up, but it can help to replenish and rehydrate your body, too. In this way, IV treatment can both ease your symptoms and help you recover from side effects from your illness.

Read on to learn more about how Mobile IV Nurses can get you back to feeling yourself again with an IV for nausea today. Don’t worry — you don’t even have to get out of bed!

Causes and Symptoms of Nausea

There are countless causes for nausea. It may be triggered by an illness such as the flu or food poisoning. It can also be a side effect of numerous health conditions, ranging from migraines and thyroid disorders to irritable bowel syndrome. Some people also experience situational nausea, which can be due to pregnancy, motion sickness, or even stress. Additionally, nausea can be a byproduct of certain medications or cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Unlike symptoms of other health issues, it’s hard to miss the signs of nausea. You know what that queasiness feels like! Vomiting is a major nausea symptom, as well as headaches or light dizziness. Nausea and vomiting can be serious and require immediate medical attention if you’re also experiencing symptoms like:

  • Chest pain
  • Blurry vision
  • Disorientation
  • Intolerable stomach cramps
  • A high fever
  • Stiffness in the neck

Even If you don’t have those severe symptoms, you may want to calm your stomach troubles with an IV treatment for nausea.

Anti-Nausea IV Treatment

An IV with nausea meds can be vital for nausea relief. It’s easy to become dehydrated if you’ve been vomiting, which means your body is low on the fluids, vitamins, and electrolytes it needs to regain full health.’

Enriched IV fluids for vomiting help replace those missing fluids and get your electrolyte levels back in balance. The extra vitamin therapy it provides can also help you feel better and prevent a vitamin deficiency.

We recommend a Myers’ Cocktail to treat nausea. This potent IV contains a solution that addresses dehydration, fatigue, and lack of energy with magnesium, vitamin B12, B-Complex, vitamin C, zinc, and the antioxidant glutathione. You may want to supplement your Myers’ Cocktail IV with nausea medicine like Zofran. Our medical team works with you to customize your IV therapy, so you get effective relief and fast results.

Mobile IV Nurses is your best choice for nausea-related IV therapy because we come to you. The last thing you want to do when you’re nauseous or vomiting is travel to the emergency room or an urgent care center and wait until you can be treated. We come to your home, office, or any other location for your convenience. It’s perhaps one of the best parts of our service. Enjoy the comfort of a familiar environment as a member of our medical team completes your treatment. IV treatment also works fast, so you can get back to your busy day or spend more time with your loved ones.

Many people report feeling immediate relief after their IV treatment—and that’s especially welcome when they’re fighting off nausea and vomiting. Don’t wait and suffer—contact us today if you’re sick of feeling sick to your stomach. We have affordable pricing packages for all of our IV treatments, including the Myers’ Cocktail, as well as several payment options to make IV therapy as seamless as possible for you.

IV Therapy for Nausea Frequently Asked Questions

1When should I get an IV treatment for nausea?

The nutrients and medication in IV fluids for vomiting are safe to use, so you can get an IV at any time. Mobile IV Nurses will even send a team to your home or office, so you can get relief ASAP when you call us.

However, some nausea symptoms may warrant a trip to your local urgent care center. Please visit a hospital right away if you experience any of the following:

  • Blood in your vomit
  • A substance that looks like coffee grounds in your vomit
  • Vomiting for four hours nonstop or 48 hours off and on
  • The inability to keep down liquids
  • Severe headache
  • Uncontrolled diarrhea

These symptoms can be dangerous and require further attention from your doctor.

2How long will my IV therapy take to work?

A typical IV treatment for nausea takes 30-45 minutes from start to finish, and many of our patients report feeling better in that time. This is because IVs put nutrients and medication directly into your bloodstream, where the body can absorb them right away.

Unlike oral medications, IV treatments do not have to be digested before they start to work. This is particularly important for people struggling with nausea, as they may not be able to keep their medicine down long enough for it to take effect.

If nausea is bringing you down, don’t worry. We’ll get you the vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and medicine you need to ease your stomach and feel like yourself again — and you’ll get it all in under an hour!

3Are there side effects to Zofran?

Some patients who use Zofran intravenously for their nausea have reported side effects, like:

  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Lightheadedness
  • Drowsiness
  • Constipation
  • Redness/pain/burning at the injection site

Many of these symptoms will subside during your IV treatment for nausea, thanks to the health benefits of the other nutrients in the IV. However, please alert your nurse right away if you experience any side effects after using Zofran — especially these rare yet serious ones:

  • Stomach pain
  • Muscle stiffness or spasms
  • Blurred vision or other vision changes
4Which vitamin add-ins are best to fight nausea?

If you want to add something extra to your IV with nausea meds, we recommend adding vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, or magnesium.

Vitamin B complex contains several B vitamins, including B1 (thiamine), B6 (pyridoxine) and more! Low levels of both these vitamins can contribute to nausea, so replenishing your body with them is a quick and easy way to relieve tummy troubles.

Vitamin B12 is a key player in your digestive process (as well as several other bodily processes), so it is essential to curbing your nausea. It also helps facilitate a healthy gut, so it’s perfect for helping prevent more vomiting and stomach-churning.

Magnesium affects over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, meaning it impacts everything from our brain chemistry to our gut health. Having too little magnesium in your body can cause nausea, so it’s important to make sure you have enough when you’re feeling ill.

All of these essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals are available to include in your customized IV treatment. We ensure that every IV treatment is perfect for your specific health needs. Get in contact with us to discuss our different IV options and ask us any questions you might have about the benefits of IV therapy.

Tiffany is absolutely wonderful!!! I've always had trouble getting IVs in the past and I would end up with a bruised arm and multiple pokes, not with Tiffany. She always gets it on the first go and I never have bruising or soreness. On top of that, she is friendly and so caring. Willing to go above and beyond to make the experience comfortable. I cannot recommend her enough. She is truly amazing at what she does.

Tiffany is the best that I have had come out and administer an IV. Usually they are maintenance IVs every 6 months or so. She has turned into a family friend and enjoy talking with her. She's always checking in on me and the kids. The best out there.

I had a fantastic experience with Mobile IV! Christa's name should be Diamond because she was a gem. Within hours of finding this company, I was able to get my phone interview done easily and Christa was at my house making me feel better straight away. The whole process was very smooth, simple, and a lot quicker than I expected. As a newbie to AZ, I am definitely having an issue with staying properly hydrated so I will definitely be using them again. Christa was very sweet and lovely. She made me feel extremely comfortable welcoming her into my home and I would be more than happy to have her as my nurse again!
