Unsure: there are medical services in some large cities that provide hangover treatment. basically they come to your home and give iv fluids, vitamins, anti inflammatories and stomach medication. but really its a gimmick and its expensive. i imagine that people get relief from this treatment but that its expensive. is taking a couple aspirin or alka-seltzer, vitamins and drinking water that hard to do?

Water and more water: Hydration is the key to curing a hangover. You can try water and sports drinks with electrolytes. Adding a pain killer such as Brufen may help as well. Coffee has shown to be of benefit too. http://www.menshealth.com/guy-wisdom/11-ways-to-ease-nasty-hangover/slide/8
