OK, I can't help it, I NEED to know. So I'm posting a new topic (sorry!) In Beer for Breakfast, Monkeyboy said something about knowing how to beat a hangover. I can not take even one drink without waking up and feeling like the bottom on New York Dumpster! I want a tiki drinky dangit! Help!

Have you done a TC search for the term "hangover"?? Hangover 'remedies' have been discussed ad nauseum here. Here's The Good Doctor's 'not-quite-patented' remedy (as seen on about a dozen TC threads AND published in the Mondo Lounge program, thankyouverymuch...)

It should do the trick!

Dr Z, I look forward to trying this out. If it works it will change my life! Can you sub two glasses of beer for the two glasses of water? I find that the beer goes down easier.

A thousand and one pardons. I did do a search, but my home computer is dial up and sucks, it took so long, it kept hanging up! So I got impatient and greedy, what with it being the weekend and all, and wanted to know fast. Sorry again!
Read your RX Dr. Z. Thanks!! Hope it'll work!
My sister, an RN, said to do it and also the following: keep a banana and crackers by the bed. When you wake up the next morning, BEFORE getting up/out of bed, eat some crackers, then a few bites of the banana. Then lie there for another 1/2 hour. She swears by it. The crackers settle and the banana has potasium. Worked when I was pregnant...

One more thing...I am truly sorry for doing another post, but cheese and crackers! It's not like I sent a worm to the main server! Ease up a bit! My brother, (posts here as Ka),is a complete ass hole, I've noticed. He posts smart ass crap and everyone's all helpful to HIM! Perhaps I should do a study on subconciously favoring male sounding posters...

Yeah I'm sorry... but, hey - it gave me a chance to use the phrase ad nauseum in a barf-related context! How often is THAT opportunity gonna come by?

yeah, but the tikitots walk in from time to time...(they already know their uncle's an asshole)! Doc, I can understand your desire to use a lil Latin. After all, you ARE a doctor.

The ONLY thing that works for certain that I've tried (and everyone else I know) is drinking a glass of water for every ounce of hard liquor and for every third or fourth beer before going to bed.
It's really, really boring, doesn't involve anything exotic like choco-chip Eggo waffles soaked in yak-pee and chased with Tabasco sauce consumed hanging upside-down with your head next to a running microwave, but it prevents the dehydration that causes the hellishness.
Course, if yer too drunk to know what water is, then do the yak-pee thing after.

Hitting it with a bottle of Gatorade usually works quite well for me. I, preferably, like to down some right before bed, to hydrate.

Read some studies and there are a few things worth noting.

Do not take Tylenol or its generic forms.
Your liver's ability to process the alcohol in your blood is blocked by Tylenol and it will make it worse. Those coming into the ER with toxic levels of alcohol who have taken Tylenol often die because of it.

Tagamet Yes, that long term antacid medicine. It has a side effect of shrinking some sort of lining of the brain which is swollen when hung over and causing that big headache.

Take Aleve and Tagamet, drink lots of water and some coffee to "speed the process". My personal belief is that dehydration is the biggest issue.

To avoid a hangover, I'd highly recommend not attending this year's rum tasting event at Tiki Oasis. Some of us are still suffering. Ouchy.
