You can read more detailed information on IVNT here:
There are a variety of combinations of IVNT available depending on your symptoms:
• The “Myer’s Cocktail” is the most well known formula – it is a combination of vitamins and minerals that can improve energy level and muscle soreness in fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
• IV Magnesium can relieve acute migraines and asthma attacks.
• IV Vitamin C can decrease viral activity and boost the immune system during illnesses like colds, flu, Epstein-Barr flares, etc.
Cost: $80- $120 per IV depending on ingredients and volume of fluid used.
An exam and labs are needed ahead of time to determine if IVNT is appropriate for you. Insurance can be billed for the exam and labs, but unfortunately insurance usually doesn’t cover the IV treatment.
