    What are your experiences with these so called anti hangover pills?
    RU-21 (are you 21..), chaser etc etc.
    I tried RU-21 but in all honesty I have no clue if it worked. I didn't have a hangover but it might've just been a placebo. Anyways, cannabis must be the only real hangover cure but unless you live in Holland/christiania...

    I have never tried them, and honestly never intend to. Who the
    hell wants to keep track of how much they drink so they can eat the
    right amount of pills anyway?



    A friend has tried Chaser....she said her head was as pounding as ever the next morning.

    Well, the whole developed by KGB thing is quite hilarious.

    My hangover cure is a large glass of water and two ibuprofen (a nap helps too).


    I've wondered about those too though. You mean you have to dose yourself just right? I can't just pop 4 or something?

    My hangover cure is just to drink about 1l of warm water before I goto sleep, and trust me when I say I have never had a hangover since. My g/f told me to do it and ever since I have not had a problem.

    Heh...the KGB story is great. It would have been neat if they
    would have been successful in creating a pill that stops you from
    getting wasted, although I'm not sure what you'd want it for.

    I am told magnesium should work. Never tried it. But something that
    works for me, is hot showers, sleep with warm clothes, and to sweat a
    lot.



    A way to get hangover, is to eat peanuts and other salty things. Works well for me.

    I just drink lots of water and take milk thistlecapsules before I go to sleep, milk thistle works quite well I find.

    A half mg of Lorazepam works well the next morning. It takes away the nervy feeling of a hangover.

    Milk Thistle is only good for your liver, doesn't do a lot for the hangover itself actually. The only way to avoid getting a hangover is drinking as much water as you can, after drinking and before sleep. Rapid (re)hydration formulas help too, like Isostar and that sort of stuff....


    If you rehydrate in time (before sleep) and use a substance like pira-/ani-/prami-/oxi- or nefiracetam in addition to Alcar and R-ALA after waking up, your whole hangover is virtually non-existent....

    Drinking in moderation instead of to excess also seems to work quite well.

    Drink water while drinking. Don't take tylenol after/during drinking. Vitamins taken daily help reduce hangovers, milk thistle is great for detox. Aspirin will thin your blood after drinking which will increase blood flow (and O2) as to help detox. Only time decreases intoxication: exercise, caffeine, sleep, food, ect don't make you less drunk.


    Alcohol is metabolized at 0.015%/hr BACon average in a 35 yo male. Women have less alcohol dehydogenase (which metabolizes EtOH), so their metabolic rate will be less (as will older/less fit persons).

    the best and only true cure of hangover is water. drink a lot while drinking. drink a big glass full before you crash for the night, and drink a glass of water when you first wakeup.

    if you drank enough that you should have been hung over and you werent
    it wasnt placebo. but i doubt that stuff works if you get yourself real
    hammered. the only guaranteed cure is water. cup after cup until you
    are bloated and feel like shit. then you can sleep like a baby and be
    fine in the morning. just dont sleep before drinking the water. cuz
    then your fucked.

    Take a Aspirin, a vitamine pill and drink a glass of water about 1/2 hour before you plan to go to bed.



    (You should take it about 1/2 hour before you lay down, because
    the pills, let your stomach work. If you lay down too early, it
    might happen that you have to puke [​IMG]).
