Is It Safe?
Myers' cocktail is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapy that is well tolerated by most people. It does, however, carry a low risk of serious adverse side effects. If the protocol is administered quickly patients may experience warmth and flushing because of the rapid rise in magnesium. Some patients may also have the taste of vitamins in their mouth shortly after they are given the infusion.
Patients taking digoxin (lanoxin) or a potassium-depleting drug should inform Dr. Schlyer of this before beginning the Myers' Cocktail protocol.
It only takes about 45 minutes to administer the Myers’ Cocktail treatment. We'll start by having you sit in a comfortable treatment chair while we set up the IV drip. Next, we'll gently insert the IV into your arm, and all you need to do is relax while the micronutrients enter your blood. Depending on your needs, Dr. Schlyer may recommend that you schedule a series of appointments once a week during the first month. Following the first month and for maintenance injections, patients may need just one or two appointments each month. We will discuss your needs, medical conditions, and symptoms during your consultation so that we can develop the best treatment plan for you.
What to Expect
Before attending your appointment, we highly recommend coming in well hydrated and having eaten a good meal. Drinking plenty of water will help move and absorb the vitamins throughout your body. For some patients, if we administer the supplement on an empty stomach, they may feel lightheaded or faint after the appointment. After your appointment, you may experience certain benefits, including:
- Increased energy levels
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved immunity
- Improved emotional wellness
If you have any questions or if you feel like you are experiencing a reaction to the infusion, please let us know as soon as possible.
