Drinking Question: Vodka + Snapple = waking up at 4 am, then 2 hours of going to bathroom every 20min due to nausea. Why not normal hangover?

The nausea is easily due to the stomach inflammation induced by the vodka. This is made worse by certain impurities in the distilling process.
So, this is not likely to get better, ...Read more
