A Cure for Hangovers?
I found this to be very interesting: Taken from Patent 6485758
Small abstract: A cure for a hangover containing the active ingredient ephedrine in powdered form enclosed in a capsule. In a second embodiment this cure contains ephedrine and charcoal, while in a third embodiment, this cure contains Ephedra, charcoal and Vitamin B6. The use of any one of the three embodiments reduces the symptoms associated with alcohol intoxication and hangovers thereby speeding up recovery. The Ephedra, Vitamin B-6 and charcoal may be combined on a wt % ratio of 1:2.5:10. The Ephedra may come in the form of Ma Huang having 6% wt % Ephedra. One type of dosage is in the form of individual capsules having 10 Mg of Ephedra, 25 Mg of Vitamin B-6 and 100 Mg of activated charcoal. The recommended dosage would be two capsules so that users who are experiencing a hangover or alcohol related side effects may take up to 20 Mg of Ephedra, 50 Mg of Vitamin B-6 and 200 Mg of activated charcoal. This cure may also consist of a therapeutic method for curing the effects of alcohol consumption wherein this dosage could be taken after the consumption of alcohol.

The standard preventative measure for me is NAC + Vitamin C + K-R-ALA before and after drinking. Works everytime.
What works even better is to not drink though. Its true, look it up.

I used to never get hangovers, no matter what I drank nor how much and I could get up at 0500 and run 3 miles. That was my early 20's, now that I'm 29 I am not that lucky any more. Hangovers are hit and miss and no matter what I tried I have no solid cure for me. Just keep H2O on hand for the morning and some excedrin and suck it up. However, I stopped drinking last November and subsequently so did the hangovers..lol

There are many folk cures that are supposed to help cure a hangover. Many of them will help you cope by replenishing the vitamins and liquid you lost over night, while some like avoiding caffeine are very important to a quicker recovery. There is no one size fits all cure, find what works for you but the list below is a good place to start.

I read a Kid Rock interview a long time ago. He keeps a "super gatorade" called Pedialyte and drinks a bottle of it before bed. I remember I tried it once and it worked great. Pedialytes is available at RiteAid/CVS/Walgreens in the baby nutrition aisle.

I remember back in the day I had a protocol. I was a smart drunk. ( atleast I thought!) I always took ALC and Milk thistle on a daily basis. I drank gatorade and plenty of fluids while I drank and this killed a lot of the physical effects on the body and the next day I'd take a detox formula with a special blend of herbs and such. This all worked fine for me for awhile until the mental effects started to kick in. The down regulation of gaba, serotonin, dopamine, ect. and the up regulation of glutamate which left me wired and anxious all the time. Nothing but cutting back on the drinking would help this part of the hangover. After a night of drinking physically I'd be fine but the next day I'd be terribly depressed and anxious as my serotonin and gaba are desperately trying to rebound. Eventually the mental effects wouldn't rebound as fast as I kept drinking and I started to feel depressed and anxious all the time. I eventually had no choice but to quit drinking. By this time however the damage was done and I've never been the same.
