I have found that "ALEVE" seems like a miracle drug!! Plus water and sleep. But, a friend of mine was just telling me about something new from Alka-Seltzer called "morning relief" she said it's awsome. But, a little hard to find....I did see it today at the Conv. Store though.........Might be worth a try!!

Well - there have been some good hi-tech posts here. The (GNC or other supplier of your choice) supplement mentioned is probably cysteine - or possibly glutathione, which is what your body makes with the cysteine. This is the stuff that your body uses to detoxify itself. Buy either of these basic compounds rather than any potions marketed as "hangover cures" - those will be lots more expensive for essentially the same thing. Take this before you go drinking. It is also a good idea to make sure your general hydration levels are good (i.e. make sure that you drink lots of water all the time anyway, but particularly on days when you intend to go drinking) because available water is an important part of the detox process. Maintaining a good vitamin B intake (the contribution of the yeast in the beer does NOT count!) is also important for helping your body cope with toxins. This is even more important for women, who generally have a lower vitamin B intake (partly because of the beer factor).

And if you forgot to plan ahead/have been neglecting your overall health and wellbeing, I find that lots of water after the fact - before you go to bed/pass out and continuing through the night - plus a couple of Alka seltzer is the way to minimise the aftereffects. And again on the ibuprofen(Advil)/acetominophen(Tylenol) topic - you really want to avoid taking complicated drugs when you have alcohol in your system. Aspirin-based products work because of the vaso-dilation factor (they expand your blood vessels so blood flow, and therefore oxygenation, is improved) but other painkillers can do a number on your stomach if it is a little raw from alcohol intake (we're talking ulcers etc. from ibuprofen - you should not take it on an empty stomach regardless) never mind the liver complications. And if you have access to oxygen, go for it, but it will only help in the short term - you will feel bad again later on if you haven't addressed the hydration issue. I have to agree with the salty crackers/dry toast/pizza/chips menu for stomach recovery.

Cheers,

Too late now, but try drinking less.

Seriously though, asprin works for many, just take a few.
