What is Myers Intravenous (IV) Vitamin and Mineral Therapy?

For some inexplicable reason some people seem to do much better when vitamins and minerals are administered by injection into a vein rather than given by mouth

The Myers IV cocktail injection was developed by Dr John Myers, a Baltimore physician, for use in his practice. When Dr Myers died in 1984, Dr Alan Gaby who was then in practice in Baltimore was approached by some of the late Dr Myers' patients who requested the treatment. Over the past ten to fifteen years Dr Gaby, who is president of the American Holistic Medical Association, has gradually modified the ingredients and informed many physicians worldwide about this, often, very useful treatment.

How useful clinically do I find this treatment?

We are one of the many doctors personally convinced of its usefulness but it should be stressed that, although we am very impressed with its efficacy in my patients, it has never been subjected many double-blind clinical trials. Our use of Myers IV infusion most commonly occurs when normal, prescription medicines are just not working for the patient and we still need a solution for the patient's symptoms. Myers IV Cocktail has been used successfully to treat symptoms in a wide variety of conditions. Please see the list of conditions below.

  • List 1: Below is a list of conditions which I have personally treated using Myers:

    • Persistent unexplained feeling of lack of well-being
    • Migraine headaches- sometimes within minutes.
    • Tension headaches
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Respiratory problems
    • Acute of chronic asthma
    • Sinusitis
    • Bronchitis

    • Ischemic vascular disease

    • Athletes who need quick recovery for athletic events

    What is usually contained in Myers IV Cocktail?

    The mixture contains a specially balanced combination of vitamin and minerals administered intravenously including :

    • Magnesium  50%
    • Calcium (Calcium gluconate)
    • Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
    • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine hydrochloride)
    • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid or ‘Dexpanthenol')
    • Vitamin B Complex 100 ( contains a mixture of B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6)
    • Vitamin C (3,000 - 5,000mg)
    • Sterile Water for dilution
  • The mixture is usually made-up at the time of treatment and may differ slightly from patient to patient.
  • What is the duration of Treatment?

    Usually you are with the doctor for 25 - 60 minutes total. A ‘treatment trial' consists of a total of five treatments given once or twice weekly. Patients vary in the number of treatments needed. Some experience improvement after only one treatment while some may not experience significant improvement until after the fifth infusion. A minority will not respond at all.
    For many people it seems to take two to three days or so before they experience an increase in energy. Once a patient has had the initial course of five treatments the interval between treatments is increased as quickly as possible and a maintenance program is worked out which may involve treatment every month or six weeks. The patient is only treated as often as they find it necessary to maintain their feeling of improved well-being.

    If the patient has not had a positive response after a course of five treatments then I do not persist with treatment.

    How is the injection given?

    The mixture is made up for each individual patient at the time of administration and is given intravenously over 25 - 60 minutes. My practice is to give the mixture quite rapidly if well-tolerated since this creates a higher magnesium concentration gradient inwards across the cell membranes.


    Myers' Cocktail is a safe and extremely well-tolerated by most individuals. Anecdotally it seems effective in the majority of people and there is a very low risk of serious adverse side effects. Sometimes there may be a sensation of warmth and flushing in the body and extremities due to the rapid rise of magnesium and some patients may experience the taste of vitamins in their mouth shortly after they are given the infusion. Dr Gaby reports in his article (see link below) that no serious adverse effects were encountered in a series of approximately 15,000 treatments.

    Patients taking digoxin or potassium-depleting drugs

    It is important for us to know what medicines you are taking and a full medical history is always taken at the time of first consultation. If you are on digoxin / Lanoxin we will give you a potassium supplement by mouth at the time of injection lest there might be a temporary drop in potassium and a potassium tablet to take approximately six hours after your IV.
