I am horribly hungover sad.gif...I don't expect any sympathy, but do any of you have a hangover remedy you would care to share?

.....oh and "don't drink" won't cut it I'm afraid.....that horse has already bolted......!

Ergh......off to put my head in a bucket ....

Drink lots of water.  A big part of a hang over is the dehydration.

In years gone by the hangover cure I used to swear by was simply the rule of drink something sweet (such as cordial) and eat something salty (such as vegemite toast or greasy fry-up depending on what you fancy).

This works on the principle of replacing fluids and electrolytes. You generally feel better after you've eaten something as well.

Obviously you need to rehydrate so get stuck into the cordial!

Also for next time drink 2 large glasses of water before bed as a somewhat preventative measure! I always found this helped hugely...

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!

Plain dry saladas and soda with a small amount of cordial works best for me.

Along with repeating "this too will pass" at frequent intervals  wink.gif

Thank you LucyE, SensibleSis and JingleBob! Have a large glass of dry ginger ale which is making me feel somewhat revived...

And thanks too for the sympathy...I don't deserve it! One would think at my age I would know when enough is enough!

Lots of Vitamin B.  I have as much vegemite as I can stomach - usually make a drink out of a huge teaspoon of it (big teaspoon of vegemite and pour hot water over it, drink) and it always makes me feel a heap better.  Otherwise Berroca works well as it has the vitamin B.

Our IT consultant's cure.

For every glass of alcohol you have consumed, drink 1 glass of water when you get home & take 2 pain killers - then go to bed. Each time you get up to go to the toilet have another glass of water & take another 2 painkillers - up to the max.

He reckons it works every time - you wake up tired, but not hung-over.

tthumbs.gif  That's about all I can do!  I sip on very very cold iced water, but when I'm hungover NOTHING will stay in my stomach!  Even a mouthful of water will not stay down until the next night!  Hence why I rarely drink too much these days, I can't stand it!!

Good luck OP!

Lots of water gatorade and Panadol and sleep

Next time drink 1 liter of water and take two Panadol before bed original.gif

I always take a preventative Phenergan before I go to sleep after a big night. Ensures you get a good nites sleep and helps stop nausea. If you don't have to do anything else today, take one and go lie down in a dark room.

Mine is BBQ shapes and power aid. I start by sipping and nibbling, after a while I feel better original.gif

#14 MintyBiscuit

Never cured it completely, but this would lessen the pain for me

Nurofen

One big glass of water with a couple of spoons of Salvital, drink it down while it's still fizzing

Another big glass of water with a few spoons of Glucodin, enough so it tasted quite sweet. I'd sip on this while collapsed on the couch feeling sorry for myself.

Once I could stomach it, fried eggs.

Or, you know, pray to whatever deity you believe in and promise to never drink again wink.gif

Berocca, dry salty food and sleep. Hope you feel better soon sad.gif

#17 ~buzz~

Lots of icy cold water and nurofen

sleep or at least rest

A bacon and egg sandwich. biggrin.gif Also, close the curtains, lay on the couch and watch tv in the dark, have a few panadols and drink lots of water or gatorade all the while groaning "I'm never drinking again".

#19 Moo point

Posted 13 December 2012 - 10:28 AM

Coke and chips biggrin.gif preferably with lots of salt and gravy.

And panadol. And cold water once you can stomach it (I could never stomach water with a hangover).

#20 noi'mnot

Posted 13 December 2012 - 10:30 AM

I can't do water with a hangover, it has to be lemonade (not sugar-free) for me.

Hot chips are a godsend when hungover. Salty, oily goodness.

Good luck OP, I hope it doesn't last too long!

Aw....everyone is being so nice!

Love the suggestions of more booze! A Bloody Mary would go down a treat! Have to pick up DS from school at three....best I not be drunk when I do that! Considering it was a school function which got me in this condition! Drinking after a P and C meeting...seriously how lame is that? Had to do the walk of shame this morning at drop off...luckily there were a few other mums looking  decidedly under the weather too.....

#23 Feral Grey Mare

A sausage roll and a can of Fanta.

#24 MintyBiscuit

Oh, a hot chip sandwich if you can manage it would be awesome too. Must be fresh white bread with butter, not margarine, and thick hot chips.

Is there anywhere near you that sells Pho?

Pho Bo is THE BEST hangover cure in the world!  You get liquids, heaps of B and C vitamins and some carbs.


Otherwise LOTS of water or cordi., panadol, and something salty and greasy (hot chips or an egg and bacon roll is my prescription!)
