Hangover Medicines, Do they exist?

Hangover Medicines After a wild party night, many of you may experience morning symptoms caused by that night such as nausea, vomiting, headache, thirst, fainting, coldness, tension or cramps.  If you have these symptoms, you know that you have what we call as “Hang Over”

Cause of Hang Over

Alcohol reduces vitamins absorption in the stomach and produces more urine which makes you urinate more often during the night. This results to excreting vitamins out of the body’s system which is the cause of dehydration and fainting in the morning.

Vitamins to Take to Relieve Hangover

  • Vitamin B1, B6: found in vegetables, peanut, soybean, milk, egg yolk, fish and liver. They can relieve fainting, dizziness and numbness.
  • Vitamin C: found in orange juice and lemon juice which helps the body get rid of alcohol quickly and refresh you from hangover.
  • Folic acid: found in cabbage and broccoli which helps send oxygen to parts of the body and restore those cells damaged by alcohol.
  • Magnesium: found in meat, egg, milk and grain which can ease headache, frustration and fatigue.
  • Potassium: found in banana and coconut which can improve dehydration.

Hangover Medicines, Do they exist?

There is no medicine prescribed as a hangover remedy. But, there are medicines that are able to relieve symptoms caused by hangover as well as products containing vitamins which can help you refresh and ease your hangover conditions such as:

  • Medicine to relieve nausea and vomiting
  • Medicine to relieve headache
  • Supplementary vitamins or beverage containing vitamins

However, it is not always necessary to treat hangover with medication.  Rather, choose foods or drinks that can ease the symptoms and enough sleep can improve the condition as well.  Besides the lack of vitamins, there are other factors which cause hangover such as dehydration or an empty stomach so it should be replenished with water or light food to protect the stomach from stomach acid.  On the other hand, if you want to take a medicine, it is suggested to be as prescribed by the doctor or advised by a pharmacist.
