FAQs

Some common questions we receive regarding our IV Therapy infusions are listed below. If you have any further questions that are not addressed here, please feel free to give us a call at (813) 397-1547!

Who is IV Therapy for?
Almost anyone. We do not treat minors below the age of 18 or patients with certain medical conditions. IVs are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding patients. If pregnant, we prefer to be in contact with your obstetrician or midwife regarding your care. IV Therapy is best-suited for those suffering from the accumulative effects of dehydration, such as:
  • Hangover
  • Cold & Flu
  • Jet Lag
  • Extreme Athletics
  • Overexertion in the heat
  • Migraines
How long does it take?
In general, for most patients it takes 35-45 minutes from start to finish. Depending on the treatment, your visit with us may take longer.
How much does an IV cost?
Our IV treatments range in cost from $99 and up, depending on the type of IV, customized treatment, or added boosters. Our boosters range from $25 and up.
How does IV Therapy work?
IV Therapy works by rapidly replenishing fluids, electrolytes and vitamins. Our treatments intravenously deliver 100% of these ingredients directly into the bloodstream. In bypassing the gastrointestinal tract, IV treatments increase the absorption rate and maximize the potency of the vitamins, medications and fluids in the treatment.
What are the benefits of IV Therapy?
Our IV treatments have many benefits, depending on the reason for your visit. However, most simply, our treatments provide an increase in energy, a feeling of vibrancy and optimized wellness. The restoration of normal fluid and vitamin levels can lead to:
  • Decreased headaches and body aches
  • Increased immunity
  • Boosted energy levels
  • Restored and refreshed look to your skin
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are usually minor and short-lived. Some potential side-effects include bruising, minor bleeding from the injection site, and mild soreness. These topical symptoms are easily avoided by holding direct pressure after removal of the IV. Other far less common side effects include risk of infection and anaphylaxis, an extremely rare allergic reaction. Our highly trained medical professionals are well-versed in diagnosing and treating any and all possible side effects.
Are IV Therapy treatments safe?
Yes! 18TH&MAIN’s IV Treatments were formulated by our Medical Director Dr. M. Christopher MacLaren, DO, FAOAO, and our highly experienced nursing team to address mild to moderate dehydration and vitamin depletion. The 18TH&MAIN clinic provides a clean, sterile, comfortable and safe environment while administering these highly-beneficial treatments. And, it uses the same fluids, medications, and equipment that is used at leading hospitals and emergency rooms.
Do you take insurance?
No, we do not accept private insurance, Medicare, nor Medicaid. However, we have priced our treatments so that they are accessible to a wide range of clients.
Do you offer group rates and special promotions?
Yes! We do provide group rates and services for private parties in almost any setting. You can reserve a group space in store by emailing us directly at: info@18thandmain.com
