What types of medications are typically given in an infusion clinic?


October 13th, 2021

We do a lot of blood transfusions, IVIG, iron, solumedrol, magnesium and hydration’s. We give some injections like Prolia and Procrit and others times perform therapeutic phlebotomy.
If you mean what types of medications due to the infusions, read on. It depends on the infusion. For blood products it’s just typically Tylenol and Benadryl but there can be more if the patient has ever had trouble with blood transfusions. We have rescue medications for certain infusions like iron infusions like Tylenol, Benadryl, Solumedrol and Famotidine. Some people have IVIG infusions with no medications while others take premed’s. We give Clonidine for high blood pressure issues as needed as well. Those are the most commonly given medications for infusions that we see.
