Is it ok for a patient to take fluids and food orally at the same time when intravenous drip is being administered.
Depends on reason: Although there is no inherent danger in drinking or eating while getting IV fluids, it is important to discuss with the physician if they have another reason why one shouldn't be taking anything by mouth. Before surgery, obstruction, etc. would require a patient to be NPO (nothing by mouth). Discuss with the doctor treating you - they would know best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

IV Lidocaine: Lidocaine, in low doses, is actually injected intravenously in certain clinical situations.

If small amounts are injected IV in the process of infiltrating tissue, it is unlikely that one would suffer any major complications. ...Read more

No, because it's IV: If a medication is IV, generally you do not have to fast - since 'absorption' from the stomach is completely bypassed.

Hopefully you can get through this treatment OK. Definitely talk to your doctor though if you have questions. Hang in there ...Read more
