At SOHMA Integrated Medicine of Lakewood and Long Beach, CA, we offer the Myer’s cocktail IV therapy. Myers cocktail IV therapy has been shown to help with a variety of ailments, including:
- Boosting Immune System
- Improved Blood Circulation
- Mental Health
It has also been used to help people suffering from migraines and upper respiratory issues. The perfectly crafted blend of vitamins and minerals in the Myer’s cocktail includes Vitamin C, B complex, Magnesium, and Calcium.
As we age, our bodies absorb nutrients differently, and a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals may be necessary to keep your body in balance. Myer’s cocktail IV therapy has the benefit of bypassing the digestive system allowing your body to make full use of the nutrients provided by the IV therapy. This gives the body a higher, more concentrated dose, available immediately.
Although IV therapy is generally safe, it’s best to understand any potential risk, regardless of how rare, in order to make the best choice for your health. Today we will go over the top 5 side effects of Myer’s cocktail IV therapy.
With many intravenous practices, there is a risk of potential allergic reactions in some patients. This can be caused by the serum or the instruments used to administer the IV. Usually, this occurs if the patient is unaware of their allergies or fails to disclose them to the staff. This kind of allergic reaction may cause itching, a rash, and, in some cases, swelling and/or blistering on the injection site. Allergic reactions rarely affect the majority of patients. However, if you feel any allergic reaction symptoms, inform the IV professionals to stop and avoid further issues.
Negative Medication Interaction
It’s essential to disclose to the staff at SOHMA if you have been prescribed any medication when asking about the Myer’s cocktail. It is possible that some medicines can have adverse reactions to the blend of vitamins and minerals in the Myer’s cocktail blend. Vitamins are natural and largely safe, as whatever the body doesn’t need eventually excretes on its own. Nevertheless, if you take medication, the vitamins and electrolytes may interact adversely with them, such as medication to stimulate red blood cell production. If you have any doubts about harmful interactions between your medication and the Myer’s cocktail, feel free to ask the staff of SOHMA for any additional information or ask your primary care provider to see if it’s safe.
Visual Injection Point and Soreness
Because of the nature of how IV therapy is administered, there may be a visible mark at the injection point. This can also result in irritation and soreness. There isn’t an issue the majority of times, and it will heal within a couple of days, although in rare cases, it can take the patients a couple of weeks to recover from it. This is typically dependent on the patient’s skin sensitivity. However, this is typical of most intravenous procedures. Such as when blood is being donated or drawn for laboratory examination.
If a patient has prior conditions, it’s important to understand if Myer’s cocktail IV therapy is appropriate for them. Patients who suffer from kidney disease or alcoholism should consult before proceeding as this can cause abnormalities in their blood levels of magnesium or potassium. This imbalance can cause problems such as abnormal heart rhythms and muscle weakness.
Because every patient is different, sometimes IV therapy can be administered too quickly for some patients. However, there is essentially no risk of overdosing or being poisoned because of this. Some patients have had rare side effects in which the patient has an upset stomach afterward.
Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy is incredibly safe, and these side effects are extremely rare.
