"Myers' cocktail" is the colloquial name for an intravenous nutrient mixture invented by Baltimore physician John Myers containing magnesium, calcium, various B vitamins and vitamin C that is promoted as an alternative treatment for a broad range of conditions. It is included in Quackwatch's index of questionable treatments. Evidence to support its use is largely anecdotal with very few scientific publications supporting its use.
