Myers’ Cocktail | Sterile Compounding | New York | Florida

In the world of intravenous vitamin and nutrient therapy, the 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 the 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.

  • A rich Myers’ Cocktail blend undiluted with IV fluids
  • Quick administration: IV pushes take between 15 and 20 minutes (versus 45-60 minutes with an IV bag)
