Maybe these recommendations are a bit too late for you for today, but they will come handy some other time.
Act Fast | Skip the sunrise breakfast; by the time you order pancakes, the alcohol’s been digested. Instead, chug Gatorade or water – at least 8 ounces – before bed.
Pop a Pill | Take two Alka-Seltzer when you wake up to stave off nausea. Headachy? Swallow an Advil with your first meal. And throw down vitamin B and C supplements to make up for the reserves depleted by alcohol.
Eat Breakfast | A greasy brunch will cause indigestion. Make white or wheat toast with honey to flood your cells with quick energy. If you’re a coffee drinker, have just half a cup today. Caffeine is a diuretic and a vasoconstrictor, so it increases your blood pressure, which can intensify a hangover.
