In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
