IV therapy can be an effective treatment for many different conditions and may help your patients to feel their best. IV therapy is also an effective and convenient way for people with busy lifestyles to ensure they are getting a sufficient supply of essential vitamins and minerals. One of the most popular forms of IV therapy is the Myer’s Cocktail.
What is a Myers’ Cocktail?
The “Gold Standard” for delivering intravenous vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream. In the 1960s, an internist named Dr. John Myers proposed that a mixture of key nutritional supplements might be given intravenously to improve performance, even though the vitamins and minerals had been available in intravenous form for years.
The Myers cocktail is one type of IV therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions. The Myers Cocktail can also be used as a base component in IV therapies and drip treatments.
The Myers’ Cocktail may help with:

F.A.Q. about Myers’ Cocktail:
Q. Can I use Myer’s Cocktail IM (Intramuscular) ?
A. Our 10ml vials are meant to be a single-dose given IV. It is possible to use it IM but the patient will not get the full benefits unless all 10mls are used, which is very difficult to do IM.
To use IV, draw the full 10mls from the vial and inject into a NS IV bag.
