Dr. Julie T. Chen, MD (Integrative Medicine Physician) answered

Overall, caffeine is not a good idea for hangovers primarily because it has a diuretic effect. Basically, it will dehydrate you more--this is a bad thing, as a lot of the hangover symptoms you experience are from being dehydrated. So, in essence, caffeine is likely just making the situation worse.

While caffeine is a stimulant and can transiently make you feel like you've got more energy, its effects are not long lasting. When that stimulant effect wears off, you are left feeling more tired and may even feel more wired and anxious. And while caffeine is also a vasoconstrictor of blood vessels and may help mildly with headaches associated with hangovers, the effect is transient.

My recommendation would be to drink plenty of fluid and make sure you eat calming foods that are not too fatty or fried. Make sure you are getting the minerals necessary for healthy body functioning and recovery, such as in vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Allow yourself to rest and recover.

It is also important to pay attention to what you do the hours before you drink and while you are drinking. Make sure to pace your drinks and to stay hydrated. One simple way to do that is to make sure you are alternating one alcoholic drink with another non-alcoholic drink. So if you start out with a glass of wine, let your next drink be water or sparkling water, then if you have another glass of wine, make sure to switch back to water after that, and so forth. This will help you to enjoy your night and the day after as well!

I like the idea of changing between wine and water. Sounds better than scarfing up the following day on menudo.

That's interesting that you should avoid fatty/fried foods when hungover, since I've heard people say that fried foods (like french fries) are good hangover foods since they allegedly help you absorb the alcohol.

Coconut water helps to replace lost electrolytes from a night of drinking, and really helps to alleviate a hangover when consumed the following day.

I'd add to Dr. Julies good advice that to help you get through the day after a boozy night out, certain herbs called adaptogens can take the edge off. 

1 combo that works well is a tincture (ie liquid) or capsules (if you can find a combo product in this form in your local natural pharmacy) of a combination of Reishi and Cordyceps mushrooms.  Always check with your doc before starting any new supplement to make sure it's right for you;)

Also trying to get to bed before midnight the night after helps you feel bright and shiny on Post-hangover Day 2 by making sure you get the magic of 'before midnight' sleep to reset your body rhythms and wake up feeling energized!

back in my boozing days, my personal rule was to drink water until i could see straight before going to bed. the next morning, no cotton mouth or hangover -- just tired. :-)

Always keep a 1L water bottle next to your bed and drink at least half before going to sleep :) and green tea the next morning also helps

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
