Infusion 101

Infusion therapy involves the administration of medication or fluids directly into the bloodstream through a vein. This can be done in a variety of settings, however most providers and patients find the best results when services take place in an outpatient infusion clinic. 

Infusion therapy is often used when oral medications are not effective, when high doses of medication are needed, or when a patient cannot take medications by mouth. Infusion therapy is typically administered by a trained healthcare professional and can be done on an outpatient or inpatient basis.

How Should I Prepare for Treatment?

Depending on the treatment, your doctor will provide you with instructions for how to prepare for your infusion. If not, a treatment specialist from Wellscript will be happy to assist. Our local care team works closely with patients to prepare for infusion, including letting patients know what to eat or drink before treatments, and any medications to avoid. As a patient, we ask that you let us know about any allergies or medical conditions that could affect the infusion.
