IV Antibiotics Q & A

Intravenous (IV) antibiotics are infusible medications that fight bacterial infections within your body. The Serene Infusion and wellness center team coordinates this service with your infectious disease doctor to rapidly alleviate major infections before they get any worse. 

There are many antibiotics out there, and the Serene Infusion and wellness center team decides which type to use after assessing your condition. They also take note of your medical history, especially any allergies you have to particular medications. 

You can get your infusions in the comfort of the office instead of a nursing home or hospital. The team closely supervises your treatment for your safety. 

You can use IV antibiotics to fight various bacterial infections, which happen when unwelcome bacteria gets into your body through a wound or natural opening. There are countless infections out there, many of which respond well to IV antibiotics, but these are a few of the most common types:

  • Bacterial skin infections
  • Respiratory infections
  • Meningitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Post-operative infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sinus infections

If you’re unsure whether or not you can get an antibiotic infusion for your infection, the team at Serene Outpatient Infusion Center can make or confirm your diagnosis and let you know if you’re a candidate. They might suggest other kinds of infusions to alleviate symptoms and strengthen your immune system.

IV antibiotics go directly into your bloodstream through a catheter, which is a slim, hollow tube. By instantly entering your bloodstream, the antibiotics can work more efficiently than oral antibiotics because they reach the infected tissues in very little time. 

Additionally, when you take oral antibiotics or any other drug or supplement orally, you don’t get as high of a concentration of the medications or nutrients within them because your digestive system absorbs a fair amount of their contents. 

The team might urge you to consider IV antibiotics if you have an infection that resists oral antibiotics because the IV antibiotics are stronger. 

No matter what type of infection you have, IV antibiotics may be worth exploring. Schedule your infusion consultation over the phone or online at Serene Outpatient Infusion Center today.
