Frequently Asked Questions

How long do most IV infusions take?

The length of your infusion process will depend on the type of infusion you’ve opted to receive. Some infusions take 30 minutes to an hour, while others can take up to four hours. After a thorough conversation about your individual needs, your rheumatologist will help you determine which infusion is best for you.

How many infusions will I need before finding relief?

This is another factor that will be determined by which type of IV infusion you choose. After certain infusions, you may feel relief after one or two doses, while others can offer longer-term relief after a longer period of time. Your rheumatologist will work alongside you to determine which one is right for your needs.
