What is the difference between IV and IM injections?

Intravenous injection (IV) is forcing a liquid directly into a vein or into a person’s bloodstream while Intramuscular injection (IM) is one made into the substance of a muscle.

The dosages for intravenous and intramuscular injections are usually similar, and generally lower than doses of comparable oral medications. However, the IV route takes the drug directly into the bloodstream which results in 100% bioavailability instantaneously while in the case of an IM route, drug is injected into muscle tissues, which holds the drug for a while and slowly releases into the bloodstream through the network bed of capillaries running across or surrounding the muscle tissue.

In this sense, the bioavailability may be somewhat less than 100% of drug due to dispersion from muscle through tissue fluid and into the blood.
