In the world of intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapy, Myers’ Cocktail is the most popular and well-known formulation blend for treating patients. Developed by the late Baltimore physician, John Myers, MD from Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Myers was one of the first pioneers who looked to vitamin therapy delivered by IV as a way of treating the cause of sickness rather than responding reactively to illness itself.
Since the 1960s, nutritional IV therapy has been widely popularized, recognized and published and used to support a broad range of treatments, from chronic disease and boosting energy, diminishing the effects of a hangover or aiding weight loss.
What is in a Myers’ Cocktail?
While the cocktail can combine several types of ingredients, the most common include:
- Magnesium chloride
- Calcium gluconate
- B complex
- Vitamin C
- Sterile water
What are the benefits of the Myers’ Cocktail?
IV vitamin therapy and the Myers’ cocktail in particular have been used to support patients with a host of conditions ranging from immune disorders such as arthritis to chronic fatigue syndrome, sinusitis, gastrointestinal issues, food poisoning, fibromyalgia, and more.
How long does it last?
We recommend that patients receiving Myers’ Cocktail infusions should do so regularly, as prescribed by their physician to experience consistent and long-standing benefits.
What are the side effects of Myers’ Cocktail?
Of course this depends on the patient and the formula being administered. There can be some mild discomfort at the site of infusion and some patients have reported a warm or ‘flushing’ feeling. Magnesium can also lower blood pressure resulting in symptoms of hypotension. The Myers’ Cocktail is often not well tolerated by elderly patients.
What is the cost of a Myers’ Cocktail solution?
We exclusively compound premium, custom prescription formulas for patients with a valid prescription rather than producing compounded, bulk products as an outsourcing facility.
