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 warm sprite to be helpful, and hydration is critical. A couple tylenol (acetaminophen) or an advil otc tablet, or just lying downwith a cool compress on your forehead is the best thing. Rest, let your body recover, drink less next tim

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?
