Caffeine is a double edged sword, it helps the headache but it is a diuretic so it dehydrates you even more if you don't chase it with a bunch of water.cotton said:BC powder, followed by a glass of Tomato Jucie. The BC has aspirin and caffeine, the juice has liquid, vitamins, and sodium. It helps.
Craziness. If I wake up anytime within 3 hours of when I have to get up, my hangover is usually so bad that I lay in bed miserable and trying to fight the urge to run to the toilet and vomit until I finally succumb and get up.Anakha1 said:Set alarm for an hour before you intend to actually get up. Take two pain killers and a large glass of water, go back to sleep. Works for me every time.
The dehydration causes the headache, that's why you have to drink a lot of water befor you go to bed.SuggestiveName said:Caffeine is a double edged sword, it helps the headache but it is a diuretic so it dehydrates you even more if you don't chase it with a bunch of water.
I always brush my teeth after a good night out, seriously when I wake up the taste in my mouth is so freaking horrible if I don't..AeroJonesy said:(I suppose if I'm able to brush my teeth the night before, I'm probably not drunk enough to end up with a hangover).
It must be different for everybody. If I drink more than 1 glass of water when I'm really hungover, that's just asking to vomit. I might as well shove my hand down my throat and force it to happen rather than drink a lot of water, because its a lot less unpleasant for me. Something about it all just unhappily sitting in my stomach swishing around. Ugh.AeroJonesy said:I've often found just getting up and moving around a bit helps me, as well as drinking a good amount of water.
As soon as I read the thread title, I knew this post was going to make it in there at some point.DrunkCajun said:Go to McDonalds, get a large Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese combo and a Coke. Your nausea will be gone by the time you finish eating it, and if you shower afterwards you'll feel human again once you're out. It's worked for me hundreds of times--only twice in my life have I not managed to keep it down, and even those two times I felt better afterwards.
