How IV Therapy Can Help Mitigate Migraine Pain

How IV Therapy Can Help Mitigate Migraine Pain

Identifying and avoiding the things that set off migraine attacks is essential self-care for all people living with migraine disease — some 39 million Americans. The triggers are different for everyone, but some common culprits include:

Medications exist to help prevent migraine attacks and treat acute attacks, but if you’re looking for a more natural way to manage your migraine disease, we have a wholesome solution — IV therapy.

At LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A., our team offers on-site IV therapy to improve your health and vitality. We customize your IV drip therapy to address your unique needs. We have formulas for fatigue, muscle spasms, back and neck pain, neuropathy, and other conditions related to stress, overuse, and minor injuries.

We also offer a special blend of vitamins and minerals that help many of our patients reduce the frequency, duration, and intensity of their migraine attacks. Here’s how it works.

How IV therapy treats migraine attacks

Migraine isn’t just a bad headache; it’s a neurological disease that can become chronic and disabling. In addition to excruciating head pain, you may experience nausea, vomiting, light and noise sensitivity, and auras that affect your vision and speech. Migraine attacks unfold in phases and can last for hours or days. 

Despite your best efforts to avoid your triggers, manage stress, and change your lifestyle, attacks are inevitable if you’re living with migraine disease. We can help you manage and mitigate your symptoms with IV therapy chock-full of ingredients that get to the root of migraine attacks.

Vitamin B complex

Studies show that vitamin B12 supplements can significantly decrease the “days, duration, frequency, and pain score of migraine attacks.” Our migraine IV therapy contains vitamin B12 to give you a better shot at migraine-free days.


Magnesium maintains healthy nerve function and prevents your brain cell receptors from overactivity and inflammation during a migraine attack. Magnesium deficiency is a known contributor to migraine disease, and the American Migraine Foundation recognizes intravenous magnesium as effective for acute migraine attacks, especially for those who typically suffer from migraine with aura. 

Vitamin C

During a migraine attack, the tissues in your brain become inflamed, exacerbating your pain. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that relieves pain and pressure during a migraine attack.

Anti-nausea medication

Migraines are notorious for their one-two punch of pain and nausea. Our IV therapy takes care of that with an effective anti-nausea medication that goes to work quickly and takes your upset stomach out of the equation.


Dehydration can lead to migraine attacks, so drinking lots of water throughout the day can help you prevent them. However, it’s easy to dehydrate from sweating, diarrhea, vomiting, or fever. Our migraine IV therapy contains essential fluids to infuse you with pure H2O and electrolytes.

If you’re prone to migraine attacks or if you’re feeling one coming on, talk to Dr. Jerome Washington and his team about IV therapy. To schedule your IV therapy appointment at LUNA MED SPA & WASHINGTON OB-GYN, P.A., call the office or book online today.
