What seems to be the problem?

You can use this page to match your symptoms (the reasons you're coming
to see us) to the questions listed below, and find a recommended package.
All of our packages (which are fully customizable) are listed on the Treatments page

I'm just plain dehydrated.

Alright, so "just plain dehydrated" means you worked in the yard and didn't drink any water, or you laid out by a pool or on a boat, and didn't hydrate enough. You didn't drink a lot of alcohol, you don't have serious muscle pain, or any nausea, you just realized you haven't had enough water. Maybe your lips are chapped, bit of a sunburn that isn't painful but it's there, and maybe you have that sticky feeling in your mouth. Nothing else.

That's going to be the very basic package, one liter of Ringer's Lactate, that we call The Essential. It should take care of basic dehydration in a hurry. Click the dark, highlighted link to read about The Essential.

I've been feeling "run-down"

In general, though there are obviously exceptions, a feeling of just being worn out comes from more than one root cause. You are almost surely dehydrated. You probably aren't getting enough quality sleep. You are likely also not eating well and are deficient in at least one key vitamin. 

Assuming you don't have a physiological issue like an inability to absorb iron, or a circulatory or respiratory system issue, you need to eliminate the vitamin/nutrient deficiency before you can start working on the rest of the possible problems. 

There are several ways to go with this problem at Rapid Recovery. 

The first (and least expensive) is a simply B12 shot. You can think of B12 as a natural energy drink. It won't solve any deficiencies (other than a B12 deficiency of course), but it will put a little pep in your step. We don't recommend getting B12 after 6 p.m. because it will almost surely affect your sleep. We also don't recommend getting it and sitting around on the couch. 

The next possible issue is a Vitamin D deficiency. LOTS of people (including an estimated 42% of Americans) are suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency. Menopausal women, people who spend little time in the sun, and those over 65 are the worst affected groups. A Vitamin D injection won't immediately raise your serum D levels, but a weekly injection of 25,000iu for a month will go a long way to normalizing it. 

The Myers' Cocktail IV is touted as a cure for fatigue, and we offer it. It's not going to have a broad enough spectrum of vitamins to ensure you are taking care of deficiency in a variety of key nutrients, but it is loaded with B-complex vitamins and they will provide a kick, if that's all your body needs.

The Lagniappe is our "Myers' on steroids" (without any actual steroids) and it has basically anything you can possibly think of from a vitamin and mineral standpoint. We add folic acid, thiamine, and magnesium to the base Infuvite multi-vitamin infusion. Infuvite is the strongest, most complete multi-vitamin we can get, or have ever heard of. It has Vitamin A, several Bs, C, D, E, K, etc., etc., etc., If you're missing something, you won't be after this. There's just more of everything.

All of the linked treatments above are worth trying if you're "just plain beat". A sleep study couldn't hurt either.

I ate something that didn't agree with me.

It happens. 

There are two central questions: 1) Are you still throwing up? 2) Is your stomach still upset?

If the answer to both is "yes", then you need the Gastro Relief package. It has Ondansetron (generic Zofran) to keep you from throwing up, and Famotidine (pepcid) to settle your stomach. This package can not be administered to pregnant women.

If you are throwing up but DON'T have an upset stomach, you can get a Lagniappe to replace the nutrients you've lost and add a dose of Ondansetron (Zofran) to stop the nausea, or you can simply get an Essential (bag of Ringer's Lactate) and add a dose of Ondansetron.

If you are past the upset stomach AND the nausea, then you'll either want an Essential to rehydrate, or The Lagniappe to replace the fluids and the nutrients you've lost.

I drank too much.

Well this one is pretty simple. We have one treatment for a hangover, and that's The Rockstar.

The Rockstar has Infuvite to replace the vitamins and minerals you've lost. The Ringer's Lactate will rehydrate you. There's magnesium added for the muscle tension. We put in extra B vitamins to give you some pep back. The real winners though are the Ondansetron to get rid of your nausea, and Ketorolac to get rid of the pounding in your head and the muscle pain. To aid vasodilation (stops the throbbing in your head) we give you 30 minutes of medical oxygen. 

If this doesn't fix you, you need to quit going out. It's quite literally how we started the company. One of our owners had a very similar treatment in Vegas after telling his casino host he felt destroyed and was going home. One of these later, and our guy was right back at the tables in 90 minutes. There's a reason we call it The Rockstar.

I have a migraine.

First things first, download and print our Migraine Resource Paper. You might find something in it that will beat the migraine without having to come in for an IV. DON'T read it on a screen. Screen reading can be a trigger.

The Migraine Relief package is given in a quiet, dark, cool room. Included in the Ringer's Lactate is a good sized dose of magnesium to relieve the muscle tension in your neck and forehead. We also put non-narcotic pain reliever (Ketorolac) in the Migraine Relief package. Among other things, you are put on medical oxygen for thirty minutes to open the vessels in your brain that are constricted. We put you in a puffy recliner, and encourage a nap. 

I'd like to do something to help my immune system.

There are three main options at Rapid Recovery if you're looking for immune system help.

The first, and least expensive, option is a Vitamin D injection. It's 25,000iu of Vitamin D. Some of the exact mechanisms of how Vitamin D affects your immune system are unknown, however it's widely known to aid in the body's absorption of calcium, so it likely affects other trace elements as well. You surely know by now that the majority of people who were hospitalized with, and suffered bad cases of, Covid-19 were Vitamin D deficient. A deficiency of D was one of the only common denominators in those with serious cases. One injection will not raise your serum D level (think of it as your moving average), so a series of injections may be warranted.

The next option is The Fresh Squeeze. It's basically fluids with the equivalent of 200 oranges worth of Vitamin C. We put 10 grams of C in the Fresh Squeeze, and the typical navel orange has 50mg. Plenty of other things impact your immune system though, so the Fresh Squeeze, while great for those who don't eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, or who have scurvy-like symptoms, is still not the top option for immune health.

The Immune Tune is the whopper. In addition to 5 grams of Vitamin C, we put in Glutathione (one of the most powerful antioxidants available), a range of other vitamins, and Zinc. If you're feeling a cold coming on, if you're prone to catching common viruses, or if you just want the anti-inflammatory effects of Vitamin C and Glutathione, The Immune Tune is the way to go. Following it up with a series of Vitamin D shots is next level, and is all the boost you can find in a bottle.

I feel okay, but I want to see about being the best version of me that I can be.

So, we're going to assume that you're staying hydrated (take your weight in pounds, divide it by 2, and that's how many ounces of water you need a day), eating right (a good mix of nutrients and plenty of fruit and vegetables), exercising in some fashion, and sleeping an appropriate amount of time. You just want to know if you can "kick it up a notch".

The lower cost alternative for you is going to be a B12 injection. Don't get it at 6 at night, and don't plan to get one and sit around because you (a) won't sleep, and (b) will start to feel flush and warm if you aren't active afterwards. B12 is like a natural version of the chemical-packed energy drinks. If you get one a week you're going to feel a difference. 

If you really want to go for the gusto, you want NAD+. Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is used by neurologists worldwide to combat the effects of degenerative neurological disorders. It's basically a fuel transport for your cells. The NAD drags a charged particle into the mitochondria of a cell, and the fuel conversion runs at maximum efficiency. You basically supercharge the engine of your cell. There is an immediate rush due to an increased metabolic rate, and you will know you got it. No more than once every ten days.

I competed a little harder than I should have.

It happens. You aren't 22 anymore. If you played golf, tennis, ran a half marathon (or a 10k when you should've stopped at 5), and took on a little more than you can handle, you need something that will help repair muscle. You will want to consider The Game Changer. It's simply an IV with a push or injection of Tri-Amino. The Tri-Amino blend OAC (ornithine, arginine, citrulline) is designed to increase oxygen absorption and speed muscle repair after a workout. Body-builders, pro athletes, and weekend warriors use OAC during training and after competitions to help build and repair muscle. If it works for them...

BEFORE getting The Game Changer, please contact your governing body if you are participating in organized competitions. The PGA and NHL have informed us that OAC is on their list of banned "performance-enhancing" substances. If you're playing with your buddies it can be your secret weapon, but if you're going to be at the Olympic Trials or the Tour de France, we'd rather not be the reason you're disqualified.

I need a "detox"/"cleanse".

All IV therapies immediately hydrate your system. You've basically added a bunch of fluids, some of which you'll pass through urination, so some toxins will be removed from your body through the normal course of business due to increased passing of urine. That said, nothing we offer is going to help you pass a drug test. We don't offer any kind of "fix" for a urinalysis. There's an old saying in the medical community (generally in reference to drinking water when drinking alcohol) that "the solution for pollution is dilution". That's the best we offer. We don't offer anything that will help someone come down from drugs or pass a drug test.

If you don't see your symptoms here, and/or have questions about which IV therapy package or injection will best treat you, feel free to use the chat feature on our site to contact us, or call us at (855) 435-8437. We're always happy to answer any questions you may have.
