If you wake up everyday and start drinking till you go to bed at night, soon it will be hard to drink enough to get a hangover.Start with beer and when your up to a case a day switch to whiskey about a fifth a day until you get to about a 1/2 gal. Then stay at that amount that should be enough to cover any amount of partying you do.

25mg. of Vioxx. It won't tear up your stomach either. Works so much better than Advil or Tylenol.

The problem is dehydration. Alcohol (ETOH) metabolism burns up tons of fluid. Hypovolemia ensues. As the liver chops up the ETOH a by-product called paraldehyde is pumped out into the bloodstream. This is your headache source and the cause of your nausea.

The solutions are threefold. First replenish your intravascular volume. IV fluids are ideal. For those of us who don't keep that stuff around the house hyperosmolarity can help. Think Pizza or a cheeseburger with salty fries. It literally sucks fluid back into the veins from the surrounding tissue. This increases intracerebral blood pressure/flow and the headache abates. You still have to make up the fluid deficit, however, as things will redistribute themselves over the next few hours.

The oxygen thing is a myth. What makes you fell better after time on the treadmill is you've revved up your blood flow, thereby circulating blood thru the liver many more times than you would at rest. Each pass thru the liver "cleans" the paraldehyde from the system. Think fuel filter.

The last is disruption of the pain pathways to the brain. Plain old ibuprofen is good enough for this task. Take 8oo milligrams at bedtime. If you have Zantac or Tagamet take that as well. Helps to minimize stomach irritation.

There you have it. Reliable, accurate medical advice from a licensed pro. That would have cost $55 in the office.

Now somebody buy my damn boat!

well said Doright, The vest way to fix a hang over is not get one,
DRINK MORE OFTEN!!! ever get drunk every day for a couple of weeks? after the first few days you don't wake up hung over you wake up thirsty and dazed, MUCH EASIER TO COPE WITH THAN HUNGOVER.
Sometimes a couple of vicodins help too.

Avoid hangovers remain drunk!

Actually the best way to avoid is a shot of agua between every beer, dehydration is the main cause of you feeling like s#*t.
