Varies: Hangovers are complicated. Some drinkers feel irritable because alcohol withdrawal causes the brain to be sensitive. Some drinkers are dehydrated or have depleted their minerals after moderate or heavy drinking. Some people feel poisoned because of additives in alcoholic beverages even when they do not drink to excess (e.g. Red wine). There are different ways to reduce each of these.

Don't drink: Hangovers happen when you drink more than what your metabolism can handle.

Don't drink so much: ...Next time. Nothing really helps, but you should stay hydrated (with water!), rest, and eat small frequent amounts. Drinking to excess can cause serious medical problems, besides being a sign of alcoholism.

It depends: I just heard that seven up helps. There is dehydration and fluids help. There are some wonderful chinese herbs, there are some prescription meds. And of course there is a little bit of alcohol. The host of possible remedies is a tip off that perhaps there is not one best solution. Time to rethink your relationship with alcohol?

Don't drink alcohol: The best treatment is alway prevention... So avoiding alcohol is the best way not to have a hangover. Here are some tips for managing a hangover. If possible, stay up until you are reasonably sober, then drink lots of water, and take acetamnophen before going to sleep. In the morning, drink lots of extra water. Ibuprofen helps the headache, take antacids if your stomach is upset.
