How To Recover From a Hangover in Long Island

Pounding headaches. Sore muscles. The inability to get out of bed. If any of this sounds like you – you’re probably hungover. And if you’re planning to spend the day at one of the beautiful Long Island beaches, you need to feel better pronto. Hangovers are like a rite of passage after a great night out, but you don’t need to let them stop you from living your day normally. Here’s how to easily recover from a hangover in the Long Island area without ever needing to leave your home.

What Is a Hangover?

A hangover is a group of unpleasant symptoms you might feel the morning after a night of heavy drinking. Symptoms of a hangover can be mild to severe, depending on how much you drank. 

Common hangover symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle soreness
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Excessive thirst
  • Poor sleep
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Decreased ability to concentrate
  • Shakiness or dizziness

Some people can experience a hangover from a single alcoholic drink, while others might not feel the effects of a hangover even after drinking multiple times. Various factors contribute to a hangover.

Typically, the symptoms of a hangover you feel most prominently are due to dehydration. Alcohol causes your body to produce more urine, which causes you to dehydrate. Excessive thirst and headaches are common signs that you need to get more fluid in you.

Alcohol also triggers an inflammatory response in the body that might make you feel sore or unable to concentrate. It also irritates your stomach lining, which can make you have heartburn or stomach pain the following day. Alcohol can also affect your sleeping patterns, which can indirectly make you feel tired and unwell the day after heavy drinking. 

The good news about a hangover is that it is only temporary. The bad news is that it can ruin an entire day. But you don’t need to waste a day just because you had one too many drinks. 

What Should I Know About IV Therapy for Hangovers?

You’ve probably heard about how important it is to drink electrolyte supplements to cure a hangover in order to replenish lost fluids and minerals. And while this is effective, only a percentage of those drinks and pills work to make you feel better.

Every medicine you take through the mouth becomes metabolized before it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is called bioavailability, or the amount of medicine that your body actually uses when absorbed into the bloodstream. Typically, you only use about 50-60% of any medicines taken orally.

IV, or intravenous, infusion is the only way to absorb 100% of a given substance into the bloodstream. So you can rest assured that an IV hangover treatment will work quickly and effectively to bring you the relief you need to take on your day.

And you don’t need to go to a fancy office or facility to get it done. The I.V. Doc is different in that we come directly to you with a personally suited IV treatment that can be administered from the comfort of a home, a private office, a hotel room, and more.

Our hangover treatments are loaded with electrolytes and vitamins concocted to get you back on your feet fast. Plus, most treatments are less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

Getting started is easy. We’ll start by consulting with you before treatment through a virtual telehealth session. After that, a licensed medical professional will come straight to your door to hook you up to an IV specially formulated to relieve that hangover.

Rush services are available, and we also offer plenty of other infusions and services outside of just hangover cures. Book your appointment today and get started.

What Are Some Other Hangover Remedies?

While getting an IV is the most effective way to recover from a hangover, it is not the only way. And pairing your IV with other at-home remedies can help you shave off that hangover more effectively.

Drink More Water

Since many of the symptoms of a hangover are related to feelings of dehydration, one of the most important things to do is just drink more water. Sip some water or fruit juice to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.

And no, the “hair of the dog” hangover treatment of drinking more alcohol doesn’t work. Sure, it might make you feel better temporarily. But it will only worsen hangover symptoms later on.

Eat Salty Snacks

Electrolytes are essential minerals that your body needs to function properly. Sodium is one of the most important electrolytes, as it can also stimulate thirst and make you drink more fluids. You can up your sodium intake by eating salty snacks like pretzels, saltines, or nuts. Better yet, eat some salty soup to increase fluid intake while also replacing electrolytes.

You can also add a pinch of salt to your drinking water to add some sodium and trick yourself into drinking more water throughout the day. 


Time is one of the best cures for a hangover, as it can allow your body to flush out the chemicals that caused you to feel hungover in the first place. So use this time as an excuse to catch up on some rest and sleep it off. By the time you wake up, you might not even feel hungover anymore.

Avoid Dark Liquors

Some studies have found that it’s possible to get more severe hangovers from drinking dark-colored alcoholic beverages, like wine or whiskey, as opposed to light alcohols like vodka and gin. This is thought to be because darker alcohols contain chemical compounds like methanol which are especially toxic and can cause a worse hangover the next day.

Load Up On B Vitamins

B vitamins are important for a wide range of cell functions, like breaking down carbs and transporting nutrients throughout the body. Some studies have found that individuals who eat more B vitamins tend to develop less severe hangovers the following day.

You can even pair your hangover IV with a B vitamin infusion from The I.V. Doc to boost the benefits and feel better than ever.

In Conclusion

Long Island iced teas go down easy, but the way they make you feel the next day isn’t as great. Hangovers are usually caused by dehydration from drinking too much alcohol. While drinking electrolytes and water are great ways to feel better, there is nothing as effective as an IV treatment.

IV fluids are absorbed by the body with 100%, bioavailability so you can make use of every single ounce from start to finish. Plus, you don’t need to go to a fancy office or doctor to get it done. Just book an appointment through The I.V. Doc, and we’ll be at your door with a specially formulated IV fluid. 

It’s easy, efficient, and inexpensive. Book your appointment in the Long Island area today.
