Just wondering if any of you give yourself Glutathione infusions at home. I didn't know if any docs prescribe this treatment along with ABX at home.

I have a port and my LLMD prescribed Glutathione that is included in a heavy duty vitamin mix. I take it once a week.

I don't know that this answers your particular question, but thought that since I'm getting it by way of a port, I would comment.

I know that many of the N.D.'s will do things like this but as far as doing some form of injections at home....I assume you mean similar to the B-12 shots some do.

Hopefully someone that has had experience with that will have the information you need.

I have a PICC line and I am doing 1.5gm's of Vanco twice daily. I would like to do some antioxidant infusions as well.

I just had some questions like cost, what antioxidants are used, do you get them prescribed from your LLMD, covered by insurance, or are they ordered offline without prescription.

Glutathione requires an rx from your physician. It is done via slow push. It can be obtained through Wellness Pharmacy of Alabama and other compounding pharmacys. You would also need an order for the saline, sterile water to mix, and heparin for flushes.

I think the same would go for other supplemental vitamin IV's but don't know.

They are usually not covered by insurance.

You may be able to find a physician (DO or ND)locally who does these types of infusions in their office.
