Has anyone ever tried Chasers? They are supposed to reduce the severity of a hangover.
What's in it? I remeber looking at a hangover pill from about 10 years ago; the contents listed on the package were acetaminophen (sp), caffeine, and ascorbic acid. Directions said to take with a large glass of water.
That's basically water, Tylenol, Orange Juice and coffee.
You're better off drinking a glass of water with some Tylenol before you stagger off to bed.
They won't reduce a hangover.
Chasers are for removing the taste of whatever you just shot down. I do not use them. If you don't like the taste of whatever you are drinking, DON'T DRINK IT!
Then again, you're talking to the guy who drinks whiskey, scotch and vodka neat (that means just teh liquid in a glass. No ice. No nothing else).
There are two ways to help a hangover.
1. Proven effective: DON'T DRINK SO MUCH
2. Drink a ton of water. This will help flush your body out. Your milage may vary. Most of the other solutions don't really work.
I believe he was talking about the pill Chaser, that you take with your first drink.
Here is a little blurb from the site (http://www.doublechaser.com/):
I don't know if it works because I have never tried it before, but if I do recall, either Bob or Tom from Bob & Tom (morning radio show) tried it and said it worked...but I don't know if it's true either since they have a Chaser advertisement at almost every break.
I think he was talking about these: www.chaserplus.com
Do NOT take tylenol for a hangover or while using alcohol!!!
It will absolutely DESTROY your liver. Take aspirin or ibuprofin instead.
You have to get water into you so your brain dosent dry out and start to hurt.
Drink some more.
A friend of mine is an ER doctor in TX. He's a partying fruitcake! He's told me that on several occassions after a LONG night of drinking he's actually given himself hydrating IV's, and claim it works very very well.
One part of me says that's extreme and just tone down the consumption. The other half (the alcoholic half) says, get ME the necessary goods to do the same!!! haha
I drink a glass of water for every beer/drink/whatever and that's eliminated hangovers for me.
Tylenol (acetominophen) and ibuprofen should not be taken as both will do liver damage. Aspirin will damage your stomach lining if used with alcohol.
2 liters of saline iv, O2, B12 shot....back in the mix.
nugs and water people, nugs and water.
Here's one you all missed: Drink clear liquor. Seriously. It's true. The science goes something like this - the 'color' of the liquor is a chemical reaction between the alcohol and the wood barrels that the liquor is aged and that 'color' is a major contributor to the morning after headache. Saw it on "Good Eats" with Alton Brown on the Food Network. Must be true.
NOW YOU KNOW AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE GI JOE
I thought the headache was because your body is going through a mini alcohol withdrawl so that if you drink a beer in the morning after it should help.
You wanna know what causes a hangover? Look no further then www.howstuffworks.com<--It's the greatest website EVER (next to TB of course).
This part I found especially interesting:
"When alcohol is consumed, it enters the bloodstream and causes the pituitary gland in the brain to block the creation of vasopressin. Without this chemical, the kidneys send water directly to the bladder instead of reabsorbing it into the body. This is why drinkers have to make frequent trips to the bathroom after urinating for the first time after drinking."
I've heard the term "Once you break the dam, the river flows free." I knew it was true, but now I know why
Here's the full story on what causes a hangover.
It's a bit long, but very interesting. Skim around that site for anything else too, it's got pretty much everything in there.
