Take one of those OTC heartburn medicines. They are the doctor approved best for the headache. They do something to shink the swelling of the brain lining that's the culprit. Also take Aleve or 2. DO NOT TAKE TYLENOL! It will make it worse! Aspirin will do. Eat chicken.

Ahem... I see my services have been requested.

I've posted my "World Famous" hangover cure on many a thread here on TC, and have plenty of printed testimonials from actual people to back up it's effectiveness (The Jab, Bamboo Ben and Johnnie Velour come to mind...) For those who have yet to experience its miraculous healing power, here it is:

--3 Vitamin B Super Complex

--3 Lecithin geltabs

--3 plain, coated aspirin

Take before 'retiring' for the night with at least 2 full glasses of water, and you'll be thanking me in the morning, I tell ya!

I use 'Nature Made' brand for the B and lecithin and just standard strength aspirin, all available in big-ass jars at CostCo.

Oh, and if things are a bit, say, BRIGHT DAY-GLOW YELLOW the next morning, don't worry: the B and lecithin are water soluble and you're just eliminating what you don't need...

Actually, I think I need to clarify something:

To wake up feeling fine, this MUST be taken the night before - sleep is an essential ingredient, because it takes time for the medicine to get through your system. If you pass out and forget to take them and wake up with a hangover of Biblical proportions, you've missed the bus, my friend, and have to wait for the next one. It will still work if you take it the morning after, but you're gonna have to wallow in pain for a few hours...

However, it is an equal-opportunity elixir: I've found it effective on wine, beer, mixed drink and straight alcohol hangovers!

(BTW - I gave out pre-made packets of these to departing guests at my b-day party last summer, 'cause the Good Doctor cares about his friends...)

I'll vouch for Doctor Z's Prevention, but I have to reduce to just 1 or 2 pills of the lecithin and Super B to prevent early morning acid-reflux. Also I've found that taking a Super B complex before a night of drinking (preferably with food) helps prevent hangovers.

After the fact, the only thing that really helps is sleep. Hair of the dog doesn't work in most cases; it usually just postpones or prolongs the pain. Small sips of water help rehydrate, but drinking a lot of liquids may worsen the nausea. Spicy foods and drinks with tomato may help. Why? Because the stomach is often paralyzed by the alchohol (which is why that food you ate for dinner the night before sometimes isn't yet digested). The tomato and spicey food "wakes up" your stomach and helps restart digestion.

Cold pork-chop sandwich on stale white bread and undercooked eggs.

...and a breath mint for after you throw everything up.

Really though - Pineapple or pineapple juice restores your pH balance as well as any food can. Super chilled. If possible, eat a bit of papaya with it to ease any reflux.

No water on the morning after, drink something carbonated.

There is an over the counter pill called: Chaser...website included here: www.doublechaser.com

What I did in my salad days was try to drink at least a large glass of water and ibeaprofin before bed. If that didn't work.. it was off to Jack-in-the-Box in the morning get two "breakfast jacks" (bread, eggs, luecon ham and cheese) and a "ulitma Chease burger, and a large "Surge" (which is not sold here anymore)

or if i was broke:
A big fat greasy cheesey unkle john style egg and hambuger meat omlet. then a nap.

Chocolate is really good for a hangover, but to get the best absorption of its medicinal properties it must be taken as an enema. So
its a win win situation.

Resolve contains- Paracetamol (Painkiller)
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
Citric Acid
Sodium bicarbonate, Potassium bicarbonate, Sodium carbonate (All are antacids)
Glucose, Saccharin sodium, Sucrose (Sugars)
This magic powder rehydrates the body.

Ideal when you don't have time for the fry up.
One of the best things at a rockin weekender is the smell of good greasy fried breakfasts coming from various chalets and cafe's , all catering to the needs of tired and hungover kats and kittens.

No offence, but the last thing you would like to do at a serious hangover is to eat...

And yes, I'm talking about serious drinking
