Discover the difference a convenient, comfortable, compassionate setting can make in your treatment.
One effective treatment for rheumatoid diseases and other autoimmune disorders is infusion therapy. Infusion therapy provides patients with medication administered by IV. It is a safe and effective alternative when a patient’s condition is severe and oral medication is not an option or has not worked. Infusion therapy can take place at the doctor’s office and is managed by a doctor and specially trained nurses.
There are several conditions that can be treated with infusion therapy:
- Crohn’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Psoriatic Arthritis
- Iron Deficiency Anemia
Before you start therapy, you will be given pre-infusion instructions. Remember to wear loose clothing so you will be comfortable. While receiving therapy, you can bring items to help you pass the time such as a book, magazine, laptop, or iPod.
