Default Hangover remedies

Let's hear your best hangover prevention and/or cure. I'm headed to Vegas next week and I definitely don't bounce back like I used to. There's got to be something better than Gatorade and Aspirin.

Stick with higher end liquor, and stay with the same thing. Hydrate while drinking alcohol. Dehydration is one of the main causes of the hangover. I avoid sugary drinks. Carrying a liter or two of Ringers for IV therapy the next day, also helps.

Coconut water, just drink it all day to rehydrate.

Biggest hangover cure which too me years to learn were.
1. Learn what will hang you over. For example wine kills me.
2. Drink only the good stuff
3. Have a glass of water between drinks
4. Learn your limit. If I have a hangover the next day or feel it at all I have had too much.

+10. Water either during or after drinking, and a little aspirin helps it circulate.

You can't fix it after the fact, gotta keep it from happening.

Drink less booze and more water.

Biggest cheat that I've found is to start a couple hours later than you would. Avoid a few drinks to start the night and you stay out of the hole.

Good luck!

This is some of the best advice here. If your friends start drinking at 6, hold out until 8 or 9 before you start.

Drink 2 bottles of water right before bed. You'll probably have to get up in the middle of the night to piss, but it should minimize/eliminate the hangover. Sleeping in the next morning also helps.

I've pretty well got this figured out for the other 362 days of the year, but isn't it a given that everything in Vegas should be done in excess?

Have your drinks made with Coconut Water as the mixer. Drink Pedialyte the next morning to hydrate.

That's not curing the hangover, that's just pushing it down the road

"Hair of the Dog," is actually good advice at times. I can't explain it.

old timers use to tell me to take in some O2.
I never did take any hits from the cutting torch tho.

wine and beer has all of the uglies in it that the yeast produces.
a good distilled spirit has most of those removed

2 bong hits. Gone immediately

In all seriousness, you need to help prevent it rather than cure it. Drink water while your drinking alcohol. I always tell my self I will do this but it never happens. A Gatorade before bed can help too.

Well, I don't have the hangover problem anymore. However, back in the day it was a bowl of progresso or cambells chicken noodle soup with one sleeve of saltine crackers crumbled over the top along with an exedrine. That was the only thing that would work. Although I guess the excedrine is not real good on yer liver.
