Default Beer Hangover

Has anyone tried the Chaser Pills before drinking heavily. If you have what did you think. I was thinking about buying some and conducting my own experiment. I have read drink water in between drinks, and sports drinks and B vitamins, etc... but has anyone tried the Chaser pill, or something similar?

I got a huge sample box at the bar when they first came out and decided to have a "bender" to see if they worked. If you follow the directions on the packet they actually work fairly well. I woke up feeling not quite right but better than I should have. No headache but a bit of a tender stomach. Not near as bad as I would have felt without them.

I just remember reading the directions on them one time and realizing that I'd have to be taking a lot of them. Maybe worth the $$ for something where you know you'll end up tanked like turning 21, but too expensive for regular consumption.

Tried them...didn't work too well, but I also got too far in to remember to keep taing them.

They need to make a patch.

I tried them also. Didn't work for me at all. Does anyone have their own sure-fired way to avoid hangovers? Besides the obvious avoid alcohol thing.

What usually worked for me, in my heavy drinking days, was lots of water and a few Ibuprofen (Advil) before you go to bed, and then bananas and Gatorade, with more Ibuprofen, when you wake up. Of course, in those days, a few healthy tokes helped, also.

Me and My roommates (college) usually wake up around 8 or 9 am, swallow down 4 ibuprofen and a Gatorade and go to bed, when I wake up at 11 or 12 I'm fine.
