No cure..u need time: Well, no official cure, yet. The fda approved the med combo of Aspirin and caffeine called blowfish which is planned to be available otc around independence day to help combat symptoms of hangover..It is a treatment..Not a cure. It may reduce symptoms..But your body needs fluids, and time to heal!
best treatment is not to get one!

Don't drink heavily: Many times hangovers are caused by lack of hydration, so drinking water during the time you are drinking can help prevent the hangover symptoms. If you are able and have no contraindication to it's use, Ibuprofen can help with the headache part. If abdominal pain occurrs or excessive vomiting a more serious condition could be present and should be evaluated.

Don't drink!: Most believe that the symptoms of a hangover is the result of a person being dehydrated. Thus, drinking as much water---yes, plain water, as you can before going to bed has been the most successful way to prevent a hangover. As for getting rid one, sorry to say that we still don't have a good answer. Tylenol (acetaminophen) and lots of fluids are as good as any. Save your $ buying herbal pills. They don't work.

Plenty of fluids: Drink lots of fluids to help flush the alcohol out of your system. You can try taking an Aspirin as long as you don't have an allergy to Aspirin products. Try and drink less to avoid hangovers.

100 year old questio: The gentleman, i assume is getting serious about the parties and all the free booze that flows in this area.
There is a saying in one eastern culture...The stomach still belongs to you...Even if everything else belonged to someone else. Pay respect to what you imbibe, know when to say no. Hangover will resolve, one way or the other, but will that stop you from having another one ?

Depends: Cheesemelt, the best cure is prevention. Drink one water or noncaffeinated drink after each alcoholic one. Eat before drinking, and taking an antiinflammatory like advil (ibuprofen) if u dont HAV stomach problems. Drink in moderation and dont drink and drive ever.
