The Myers’ Cocktail IV Infusion Therapy
in Gilbert AZ
There are many reasons that people choose Myers’ cocktail. Some do it for the feeling of health that comes with proper absorption of vitamins by the body. Others do it to increase athletic performance or to treat more serious health challenges, like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, chronic migraines, sinusitis, allergies or even cardiovascular disease.
What is Myers’ Cocktail?
The Myers’ cocktail is an intravenous micronutrient therapy that was pioneered by the late Dr. John Myers. The therapy bypasses the digestive system by injecting a mix of vitamins, calcium, and magnesium directly into the bloodstream. The mix includes:
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin C
While treatment plans vary based on each individual’s needs, most people receive this cocktail through an IV once or twice a week at the beginning of treatment. Then treatment spreads out to once or twice a month for as long as your doctor calls for it. Patients with chronic conditions often choose to come in for ongoing treatment whenever they feel their energy decreasing.
Oftentimes, the body is so broken down that it is unable to break down and absorb the very vitamins and minerals it needs to get and remain healthy. That is where the Myers’ cocktail steps in. By inserting it directly into your bloodstream, you give your body the nutrients it requires to grow stronger. Whether you require a few sessions or ongoing treatment, you are ensuring your body has its best chance at recovering and improving—thereby improving your overall quality of life.

What are the risks/complications of this treatment?
IV therapy is generally very safe. Before treatment, patients consult with a board-certified physician who conducts a brief medical history to best understand health and wellness needs. IV therapy is customized and overseen by this physician to decrease the risk of adverse reactions with medications or health conditions. The primary risks of the Myers’ cocktail relate to the insertion of the IV itself. These include bruising, bleeding, and infection.
How often should I get the treatment?
IV infusions of the Myers’ cocktail may be received as often as a few times a week in acute or chronic cases. As vitality improves, patients may receive treatment once a week, a few times a month, once a month, or on an as-needed basis. Because a doctor oversees IV treatment plans, patients are not on their own to determine the optimal frequency of sessions.
How long does it take until I see an improvement?
Every person is different in their response to IV therapy. Some patients feel a boost of energy and mental clarity right away after their Myers’ cocktail and enjoy effects that last about a week. Patients who receive Myers’ cocktail treatment for chronic conditions or to help boost immunity through cold and flu season may notice the effects of their IV infusion in slightly different ways. We generally expect patients to feel some degree of improvement in vitality after one to two treatments.
