Hangover Myths Revealed... (Part II)

So we started listing the myths about hangovers and exposing the truth in Part I. Here's Part II to complete it...



MYTH #5: “Hair of the dog that bit you”

Some people say you should have a drink in the morning to relieve the symptoms. Well, the truth is, a hangover is the result of a withdrawal from alcohol. Having a drink can relieve the symptoms but only for a short period of time. This morning drink does nothing but postpone the hangover until later during the day. “Additional drinking
will only enhance the existing
toxicity of the alcohol consumed during
the previous bout and may increase the
likelihood of even further drinking.”, scientific reports claim.


MYTH #6: “Tylenol, a good night sleep and you’re good to go!”

Taking any pill at night is useless because the effect of pain killers peaks in about 4 hours so it’ll be gone in the morning. Whatever you’re planning on taking, you should take as soon as you wake up for optimal results. Scientific results show that antacids such as Maalox, Tums or Eno can be good for the gastritis and nausea that come with the hangover. Aspirin and Ibuprofen reduce headaches and muscle aches. However they should be used with caution. So ask your pharmacist or doctor.
It seems that Paracetamol (Panadol, Tylenol…) is to be avoided after a drunken night as the alcohol metabolism enhances the pill’s toxicity to the liver.


MYTH #7: “Coffee PLEASE!”

Having coffee the morning after a drunken night is not really the best choice. In fact, it will make you even more dehydrated and aggravate the symptoms. You should focus on energy drinks and water to replace liquids and electrolytes lost especially if you vomited the night before.


            

MYTH #8: “I think I’ll have some pasta before going to bed tonight!”

This is wrong for 2 simple reasons. First of all, in order to decrease alcohol absorption, food has to be in your stomach before drinking. Second of all, carbohydrates are not the best choice for decreasing alcohol absorption. You should go for something a little fatty such as a pizza or steak. Now I know that it’s not the healthiest choice but it’s the best way to avoid that terrible feeling of being hung over.


MYTH #9: “I’m definitely gonna need a cold shower”

Wrong showering can be a great idea; however, you should alternate between hot and cold water. The first will relax your muscles and your overall body as well as remove some of the alcohol from your skin and the latter will help you wake up.

Recap: The recipe to avoid and/or cure hangovers

1. Have a good meal before going to the bar: Have a consistent dinner before drinking. 
2. Try to hold your liquor: control your alcohol consumption. Alternate between alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks such as juices and water. This will allow you to hydrate yourself and decrease your alcohol consumption.
3. Water, water and even more water: water will prevent you from getting dehydrated and experiencing those dreadful symptoms you have every single time! 
4. Don’t skip the next morning’s breakfast: you might be suffering from nausea. Still, you will need the energy. So, have some complex carbs and some proteins (e.g. eggs on toast).
5. Eating a banana before going to bed seems to be helpful. In fact it is rich in sugar (fructose) and potassium which are both very good after alcohol consumption.
6. Sleep: one of the best ways to cure a hangover is to get a good night sleep.

Don’t let the morning after ruin the memories of a great night. Follow these tips and most importantly always drink responsibly!
