Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy is a treatment option for a variety of different pain syndromes including such conditions as fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, phantom limb pain, post-herpetic neuralgia, complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS), diabetic neuropathy, and central pain related to stroke or spinal cord injuries. The medication infusions can also be used in special occasions for the treatment of severe depression and refractory headaches.
A variety of different medications can be used for infusion therapy:
- B Vitamins
One or more of the indicated medications are typically mixed into a saline infusion bag and slowly infused into a peripheral vein.
Your physician will select the appropriate medication and dose to be used in the infusion depending on your diagnosis and the type of pain you are experiencing. An intravenous catheter will be placed in your arm or hand and then the medications will be infused over a standardized amount of time. You will be monitored throughout the infusion period.
IV Infusions were first introduced as a treatment for pain in 1963 using lidocaine. Since then several studies using different medications have shown benefit in treating patients with chronic pain. The goal of therapy is to substantially decrease your level of pain and make you more functional over the long term.
