Water and aspirin.

Water hydrates, aspirin helps with pain and thins blood with water.
ATTENTION PEOPLE RECOMMENDING ASPIRIN/TYLENOL:

Large quantities of alcohol + aspirin = gastrointestinal bleeding. Alcohol + non-aspirin pain relievers = liver damage. Don't spout advice if you don't know what you're talking about.

Old link with relevant info.
Ibuprofen isn't great either because it upsets the stomach and can worsen the nausea feeling.

After long nights of drinking, my friends and I would go to a Vietnamese restaurant and eat some pho. It's greasy and eases my stomach.

Oh yea, and lots and lots of water. You are probably very dehydrated.

Take all the tylenol you can, followed by a few aspirin. Tell me how you feel in the morning.

I don't understand how some people wake up hungover and drink a beer first thing in the morning... and even more amazing, it HELPS them!!! I just don't get it... I can barely smell beer when I'm hungover!

last time i drank too much i had a crazzy hangover the next day. threw up all morning. couldnt even drink water. finally i took an advil around 2pm and went out for some fresh air and lunch. that really helped. my headache went away like 20 mins after takin the advil. nausea went away after i ate something (thai food). but dont eat too much.

After waking up with a helluvahangoverheadache one time at school, I swore I wouldn't drink again... and I haven't.

Do you people do it for the buzz NOT expecting this to happen ? How do you prevent hangovers ?

I usually don't drink enough to get *WASTED*, so when I get back home, I'm still capable to drink water. I drink water until I'm ballooning, then I go to bed. I'm not always in super shape the next morning, but instead of having a huge headache, I can still do my things and light homeworks.

Seems like you over did it. I don't drink often (maybe 10 times at the most per year) but I sure can tolerate. But I never, never get to a point where I would pass out. I stop myself once I know I am about to "cross the line."

drink lots of water. you should've drank before gonig to sleep..

hang over occurs in the middle of the sleep when your body desperately needs water to make up for your alcohol consumption.

You're hot because you're dehydrated. If you ususally drink coffee in the morning your headache may be exacerbated by caffeine withdrawal. Take a pain killer with caffeine in it and drink water. Keep drinking water till it stays down. You're hungover, you did it to yourself, you'll survive.

When you finally can eat, have some Pho. It's good stuff and will make you feel better. :D

You just spoiled my weekend :frown: After two 'dry' weeks, I was planning to get a 6-pack today. My wife thanks you :p

Get some fresh air (but stay out of bright light :D ) and wait for it to subside - nothing else can be done now. Eat plain bread - that was the only thing I can keep down when I have a bad hangover. No medicines, absolutely!

Yeah, don't drink so much next time, eh...

And have lots of water, and bread. That'll do you good.


Next time you drink, force yourself to consume mass quantities of water before going to bed. It really helps.

Noob.


Next time drink 4+ glasses of water before you go to sleep, even if you arent thirsty. When you wake up later to take a piss, drink another 2 glasses of water. If you wake up again drink some more water.

In the morning you wont even be able to tell you drank. (unless you are still buzzing)
