Stomach Flu


IV treatment is ideal for treating the stomach flu because it hydrates you, restores nutrients your body loses through vomiting and diarrhea, and delivers anti-nausea and antacid medications directly into your bloodstream.

The stomach flu makes you feel terrible and can prevent you from being productive at work or school. Knowing when to get IV therapy for stomach flu symptoms will speed up your recovery time and help you feel better within hours of treatment.

When to Get IV Therapy for the Stomach Flu

Viral gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach and intestines following exposure to a virus. More commonly known as the ‘stomach flu’, this condition usually has an incubation period of 12 – 48 hours after exposure to the virus or bacteria and can last several days. You can get the stomach flu from food or water, coming into contact with someone who has the virus, or from sharing utensils or food with someone who has the virus.

We recommend getting IV therapy as quickly as possible when you’ve been affected by the stomach flu. The sooner you get IV therapy, the faster you’ll feel better. You can prevent dehydration, reduce the severity of your symptoms, and speed up your recovery time so that you can get back to feeling normal as fast as possible.

Our Stomach Flu IV starts to work within minutes, providing fast and effective relief from symptoms of stomach flu. You’ll be able to reduce the amount of time you miss from work or school, which is especially important if you have a presentation or exam coming up.

Best of all, Drip Hydration delivers treatments directly to you whether you’re at home, a hotel, or at the office. You won’t have to leave the comfort of your room to find relief from the stomach flu.

Why Choose IV Treatment for Stomach Flu Relief?

Whether you’re at home, on vacation, or at work, there’s never an ideal time for food poisoning to happen. Worse, unless you know you’re eating contaminated food (and who does?), it’s impossible to know if you should avoid that salmon mousse on the menu.

Until recently, IV therapy was predominantly used in hospitals to treat serious cases of food poisoning. Serious cases of food poisoning can lead to severe dehydration, fever, weakness, and in rare cases, double vision. Fortunately, most cases of food poisoning resolve with home care within 24 – 72 hours.

Since your body can fight off food poisoning on its own, you may be wondering why to choose IV treatment for stomach flu relief. Here are our top reasons IV treatment is right for a fast recovery.


Depending on the severity of your particular case of food poisoning, it may take several days for you to recover from food poisoning. In some cases of bacterial infection, your healthcare provider may prescribe antibiotics.

Food poisoning remedies with IV therapy will bring you relief from your symptoms within a couple of hours.


It’s easy to become dehydrated when you have the stomach flu. Diarrhea and vomiting quickly drain your body’s reserves. Sports drinks, electrolyte-infused beverages, and plain water are essential to help you stay hydrated and prevent the complications of dehydration. However, you may not be in the mood to ingest anything when you have food poisoning.

IV therapy circumvents the need to ingest anything by delivering hydrating saline solution directly into your bloodstream so you can enjoy the benefits of hydration without further discomfort.

Dehydration can cause many serious issues if left untreated, and that’s why IV therapy is ideal for combating food poisoning. The saline solution used in IV treatments rehydrate you and relieve dehydration symptoms such as fatigue, headache, and lightheadedness within 30 minutes to an hour.


Not only are you depleted from your symptoms, you can’t easily replenish your body’s reserves by eating and drinking as you normally do. The ingredients in our IV formulas supplies your body with the vitamins and minerals lost from diarrhea and vomiting.


Our Stomach Flu IV contains antacids and anti-nausea medication, reducing your discomfort and improving the quality of your rest for a faster recovery.

It can be impossible to think about eating or drinking anything when you have food poisoning. IV drips bypass your stomach, delivering vitamins, nutrients, and medication directly into your bloodstream so you can start feeling relief within minutes.
