IV therapy is a method of delivering vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream. It bypasses the digestive system and goes straight to your cells. Because of this, it's sometimes used to treat mental health issues.
For patients in need of mental health services, such as anxiety or depression, intravenous (IV) therapy may be recommended in a clinical setting. This treatment is used to administer medications that can induce a sense of calm and well-being in the patient. It is common for patients to experience relief from emotional distress, panic attacks, or a racing heart rate while undergoing this treatment plan. Mental health disorders can require long-term management in conjunction with medication and therapy. While an inpatient stay may be necessary for treatment, many patients can benefit from outpatient therapy and care as well.
There is an expectation that mental health conditions are expected to increase by 2001 percent by the year 2020. The effects of anxiety and depression can be devastating to a person's quality of life and daily functioning, and they can be exacerbated by other concurrent conditions like chronic pain. The stress of dealing with these issues can affect a person's ability to eat, sleep, and function at home.
As a result, many health professionals recommend a combination of medication and counseling as the most effective approach to treating these conditions. Medications that are injected intravenously are often more effective at relieving symptoms than those that are taken by mouth. These drugs are also easier to self-administer, which can be beneficial in terms of compliance. At the root of mental health issues is often a chemical imbalance in the brain; however, these imbalances can be treated with psychiatric medications that can have a profound effect on a patient's life.
When taken as directed and under the supervision of a physician, the benefits of IV therapy can be significant and long-lasting. Patients may experience symptom remission after one round of IV therapy, although ongoing treatment sessions are usually necessary to maintain the positive effects of treatment. Medications may be delivered through an IV drip or through an injection, depending on the drug used and the needs of the individual patient.
