Default Any Hangover M.D.'s ?

I've got hangover head

We must have a good hangover cure out there. The worst ones I get are with store-bought brew. I never get cheap stuff anymore. Last night I picked up some "WARSTEINER DUNKEL" - this is the best store-bought stuff I've had. Drank 4 - 12oz. Huge headache the next morning - an all day thing at that.

Give me your best hangover advice and I'll be a happy man!

What are your secrets?

Glass of water and an Excedrine before going to bed. Big glasses of water are clutch-cargo before bed on a night of heavy drinking. And Excedrine seems to be designed for hangovers, as is Alka-Seltzer cold therapy.

Alcohol dehydrates your body big time, thats what causes all the problems. Its best to avoid tylenol products they don't play nice with booze, I usually eat something and drink lots of water before going to bed. Morning time I do alka-seltzer plus cold and some gatorade that'll fix ya up pretty good.

I didn't know about the cold version but back in my heavy drinking days, I used to drink a full pint of water and take an origonal alkaselzer before going to bed. In the morning, I'd just roll over and if my head was spinning, I'd ask my wife to get up and fix me an alkaselzer. She'd bring it to me, I'd drink it down and crash back into my pillow for another 30 minutes of sleep to give it time to kick in.

Usually thirty minutes later I was on my feet and eating breakfast and getting on with my day. No more problem.

Of course, there's the hair of the dog thing but that's a slippery slope. I've recovered once or twice that way but you've got to choke it down.

After a bender, a good dose of viatmin B before bed will do wonders, as will water. Usually I will take an Aleve as well. It doesn't damage your liver like Ibuprophen or Acetominaphen (sp?) can.

Gatorade b4 bed is the way to go. I haven't found anything that makes me feel better the next day other than avoiding the problem altogether.

In college, I'd drink a quart of Tang and go back to bed for a two hours. Hydration seems to be the key. Getting old helps, you can't drink as much in the first place, you fall asleep!

I've found that as I have got older, alcohol prevents me from sleeping.

Marmite (a yeast extract spread sold in the uk) on toast works for me.
