In severe conditions in which periodic injections or oral treatments are insufficient, infusions may prove to be a viable option. Infusions may be used in a wide variety of treatments, including IV Steroids for MS Flare-up to Immune Globulin Intravenous treatment. There may be certain differences in receiving a medicine through an infusion as opposed to orally. While a medicine taken orally must travel through the GI tract and is broken down in the stomach and digestive tract, a medicine delivered through an infusion will be absorbed at a much higher percentage. Where as an oral medication may be absorbed at a rate of 50 percent, a medicine delivered intravenously may be absorbed at a rate of 90 percent. Infusions may be a preferable or necessary option depending on the condition or circumstances of the individual.
