Originally posted by Speed-ER doc Take 1000 mg of acetaminophen (Tylenol) right before you go to sleep. The tricky part is remembering to do it, but it works.
A alcohol induced headache is caused by constricting blood vessles in your brain. Alcohol is a diuretic. Those two things combined make a nice hangover.
Try to drink a lot of water before going to bed and take a nasal decongestant like Sudafed. The Sudafed opens up blood vessle and the water will replenish your system. Trust me on this, I went to Penn State. :D

Another good idea! Forgot about that one. Prilosec is good too. I don't really think the charcoal, etc. in the advertised solution at the beginning of the thread does anything to help though. But it probably doesn't hurt. Sort of like these folks who take lots of vitamins (and just urinate them out).
I have tried those very pills and if anything, they worsened my headache. I was sober before I went to bed, and I ate right before bed, which usually means I wake up hangover free. Well not this time. I had a pounding headache in the morning. I had two other friends try the pills as well, one of them had the same results as me, and the other said they worked. So the pills are 1-2 in my book. We drink beer though, but maybe these pills work well with liquor.
As for tylenol...I thought it hardens your liver if mixed with alcohol? Or is that a bunch of BS thrown on there to prevent lawsuits? I've been taking Ibuprofen instead.... What's the real deal here, because I always seem to have tylenol around when I'm hungover but avoid it because of that warning.

Ibuprofen works too, but is harder on the stomach, could cause bleeding. Alcohol damages the liver, tylenol is metabolized in the liver. People with liver disease should avoid alcohol and limit tylenol.
The occasional tylenol taken after an occasional alcohol binge is probably OK in my *personal* opinion. If someone is drinking alcohol every day, they are likely to develop liver disease, and should be more cautious about medications.
disclaimer: these issues should be discussed with a licensed physician in your state. (lawsuit suit on) :D
Just make sure that you have ingested plenty of WATER after your alcohol binge.
Most of the horrid effects of a hangover are caused by the severe dehydration that alcohol causes. Not to mention the toxic products that alcohol breaks down into... drink LOTS of water to rehydrate AND flush your system of the toxic metabolites of alcohol. Do this before you pass out.
If you wake up hungover, what always worked for me in college was 2 excedrin and as much gatorade as you can stand to drink in one sitting. Same deal, rehydrate rehydrate rehydrate.
What helps with nausia the day after. I have wierd hangovers, and I can get them from drinking only three or four drinks. I wake up with a headache, but usually goes away within an hour. After that though, I get heartburn and start to feel nauseus. I never actually get sick, but it feels like I am going to. This feeling then lasts all day. I have had a couple times when a hangover would last more than 24 hours. I have reduced the frequency in which I drink now because of this. If anyone has any advice on this I would appreciate it. I like drinking, but the price is a little too much.
