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.

No magic: Nobody has proven any of the many "folk" remedies, especially not "hair of the dog that bit you" - drinking whatever gave you the hangover. Recent chinese study found drinking sprite in particular to be helpful, and it certainly couldn't hurt. A couple tylenol (acetaminophen) or an advil otc tablet, or just lying down with a cool compress on your forehead is the best thing. Rest, let your body recover-drink less.

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! good luck.
