Gatorade and ganja work too

IV drip.... of what? Demerol?

$250?  That's one expensive bloody mary.

1/2 pint of vodka. A hangover is really just a mild case of withdrawals.

Who cares if "hair of the dog" only delays your hangover? You can put that sucker off for years.
 
2014-03-15 09:06:38 AM
Lots of cold unsweetened iced tea and a long hot shower do the trick for me. The big greasy breakfast after that is just a bonus.

It's only $99 here in Austin.
Just look up "rolling revival".

What works for me is drinking 1 pint to 1 quart (1/2 to liter) of milk (at least 2% or more fat)...with 3 ibuprofen or 2 naproxen sodium (Aleve)

The body absorbs milk much slower than water...which means your dehydration will be lessened without the alcohol effects merely making you piss liquid away. Ibuprofen and naproxen sodium is for pain

If you are allergic to milk...use orange juice. Not as effective as milk, but is better than mere water or caffeine drinks

Alcohol dehydrates you, a dehydrated brain is a painful brain. So yes drinking lots of water before bed is the best way if you don't want a 250$ hydration fluids at the doc's. The water should also wash away the nausea but if not some Tums should help

Can we stop posting "one weird trick" articles?  I read the first paragraph, read the last paragraph, and still had no idea what the article was about.  Then I saw "you'll have to watch to about 1 minute in", and came back here to shiat on the thread.

Drinking lots of fluids dilutes key nutrients in your body, so it's good to take a multivitamin, or alternatively drink some gatorade or something.

Waking up in bed next to any of these lovelies (or 2 of them, or even all 3) would cure my hangover.

I have never had a hangover (not for lack of trying). But my psych teacher said a bit more alcohol is the only way to cure a hangover. Unfortunately, that's how people become alcohol though, through many-times-repeated cycles of night and morning drinking. He said this is why people who don't get hangovers are far less likely to become alcoholics.
 
2014-03-15 09:46:52 AM
I knew someone who was in the Army reserve who had the IV rehydration back in the late 80's. He had direct access to an Army base clinic that weekend, and a nurse took pity on him that morning after he went out drinking the night before with a bunch of guys in his unit.

He told me that it was the most incredible shift from hangover to normal that he ever experienced. Nothing ever came close to that.

Spray your gums with pure oxygen. Instant & total hangover removal.

Just dont do it near any open flames.

If you're going out and getting IV drips to offset hangovers, there's something wrong with you.

Could. Didn't need it.
 
2014-03-15 09:54:18 AM
I tend to do almost everything on the list. Eat after, drink lots of water before bed, long hot showerbath (I can't stand for long when really hungover, so my showers often turn into baths as I lay down to die) in the morning to wash away the night, good hearty full English breakfast plus banana (a friend swears by having a banana before bed, but I tend to forget so have one in the morning), Coca Cola, tea with 3+ sugars, and a bit of physical activity. If nothing else works then I'll have an alcoholic drink.

One thing I've noticed over the years is that trauma helps. Obviously not trauma to me, but if something goes horribly wrong on the night out then I sober up fast, and the hangover the next day is lessened. I try to trick my body into thinking that something traumatic has happened sometimes, or use my imagination and pretend the footsteps behind me is a murderer, but it never works as well as if it was a really traumatic experience.

I just have to find me a nurse willing to hook me up to an IV so I can give that a try someday.

There are three sure and certain cures for a hangover.

More sleep
More liquor

People actually can become alcohol?

Pedialyte and BC powders.

Or a spicy Bloody Mary.  Whoever says hair of the dog does not work is a filthy liar.

IV drips of what?
 
2014-03-15 09:57:11 AM
Curing a hangover isn't the same as preventing a hangover. IV drip is the only way to cure a hangover. Poke, drip, 20 min later you're cured. Nothing else does that.

My wife's aunt never, ever gets hangovers --- no matter how hard she drinks. However, the fact that she's had 2 concussions within the last 10 years and can't remember anything from 5 minutes ago might be a part of that.

Don't drink more than you can handle. Not just free, it'll even save you money. And hangovers.

If only there was some other way you could rehydrate your tissues.
 
2014-03-15 10:01:31 AM
How about just preventing it so you don't get one?

Drinking water and/or tea with every few shots has kept me without a hangover for over a decade. Only had the one before that, but that was a night drinking cheap beer for many many hours.

Though if you're not careful you can sorta develop a habit. Realized hangovers are nature's way of saying 'too much!". When you polish off a fifth of Jameson, then the next day take your vehicle to the shop to get the tires rotated and realize on the trip there '...wait I'm still drink I think', might be better to let the hangovers work their warning magic.

Or you could just be careful. To each their own.

If I remember correctly, every unit of alcohol your liver breaks down requires 6 or 8 units of water. You do have a point that once you reach a certain phase in your bender, it isn't really feasible to drink enough water to counteract the booze in one sitting

2014-03-15 10:03:31 AM
I'm here to call some of you out on your bull poop comments.  At the very minimum, there are likely to be multiple biological factors that contribute to hangover symptoms.  Saying that home remedy "X" is a hangover cure, is quite frankly, like telling someone whose car is broken down by the side of the road that filling their tank up with gas will fix their car.

Sure, if you're the kind of person whose car routinely stops working because you run out of gas, then filling your tank up with gas is probably going to do you a lot of good.  And if you happen to come across someone else who managed to run out of gas, then your advice to fill up is going to work.  But it's still naive to believe that your cure for a broken down car is some pinnacle of master knowledge that will fix everyone's ills, and use that as the fuel for your anti-intellectual mental masturbation.

Don't mix shiat. Especially beer and liquor. And avoid girlie drinks with a lot of sugar (you shouldn't be drinking those anyway, Mary). Vodka's ideal.

This.  Just don't ever wakeup with a bad hangover.  The pleasurable highs ain't worth the miserable lows.

/speaking from experience, sadly.
 
2014-03-15 10:10:39 AM
Lol I swear I am not drunk right now just typing on a phone. I have nearly fallen off the edge of the Citrus Bowl. Actually, now that I think about it, I've never been to the Citrus Bowl and not been wasted.

I have spent the night asleep on the rim of a toilet so I could throw up in my sleep without getting myself covered.. That's a move I perfected in college. So when I hear that people who don't get hangovers aren't trying hard enough, I LMAO.

I get drunk on three drinks now, what happened? Back in college it took so much to get me drunk lol
 
2014-03-15 10:11:38 AM
If IV drips are good, then I have to assume that XII drips will be three times as good.

Also, I must not get the level of hangover that other people get.  I NEVER got one when younger, but now I occasionally feel a bit blah.  It's hardly so horrible that I'd consider hiring a nurse to remedy it, though.

Or, maybe I just feel so bad so often that I'm used to it.  I dunno.
