True, but from an economics standpoint, that's not great advice. If all one needs is 100% of the RDA, and it's $5 for 100 of those, vs. $7 for 60 of the bigger ones, there's a choice to be made.

I have the B complex pills but I usually down water and several multi-vitamins. Your body flushes out a lot when you piss so much from drinking so I like to add back everything the body needs at once.

I should have tried this last night. Feeling like crap all day so far and now I am going to help my buddy chainsaw his palm trees because he has a cast on his arm and can't do it himself. 100F, a chainsaw, and a hangover don't mix.

I'm definitely trying the B Complex next weekend.

Went to a beer festival yesterday. Drank quite a bit with very little water. Took the cheapo b complex before and after drinking...hangover was minimized by quite a bit. I felt 75% this morning and fully recovered by now. Normally I would feel a hangover for a day plus. I'll keep using the b complex till I see otherwise.

Just wanted to chime in with my experience.

While not "going on a bender" so-to-speak, I have had 5-6 beers a couple nights after SWMBO bought me the super-b-complex vitamins.

It has definitely saved my hyde a lot of headache (literally). I have a newborn, and at the 4:30am feeding last night, i felt the dreaded "back-o'-the-head" headache. I went into the kitchen and popped a B-vitamin.

When I re-awoke at 9-10am (dont remember which), I felt 100% better. Normally the posterior headache lasts for at least a day, and I feel nauseous and may/may not (probably will) puke the next day.

I can say, I still feel just a bit "punky" after having 5-6 beers (which would normally leave me hating life the next morning), but I wouldn't even call it hung over.

I will try and remember to report back after imbibing more than a 6pk one night. I've almost trained myself not to do that, however, because of how used to hangovers I am.

OP, thank you for the post, and the idea which has already helped me out.

i tried it, i picked up a bottle of complex b vitamins. with the ammount of beer i drink when i have no responsibilities the next day, i still end up with a little bit of a hangover. i have noticed a difference that i am a little bit sharper, less grogy, and able to actually get stuff done.

Tried it out a couple more times this week, you know...for science. I think the stuff definitely helps. However, for me, I have to take two pills. One before drinking and one after. I usually get a massive headache the day after having even just 2 or 3 beers, this has nixed that. One pill seems to have zero impact for me.

And on a night I imbibe quite a few extras, this gets rid of the headache part and minimizes the groggy feeling. Like said above, its enough that I can feel useful the next day.

Good job spreading the word cape!
