New Yorkers flush out the hangover
By Ana Samways, The New Zealand Herald June 30, 2014
Anyone who's ever had a hangover can probably admit they'll try just about anything to minimise the anguish. Now, thanks to The "IV Doctor", a service started in December by a New York urologist, the degree of suffering may be at least marginally reduced - for a price. Ailing party goers can for $249 have a nurse come to their homes or offices and administer 200ml of fluid by IV, plus a cocktail of drugs to combat nausea (Zofran), heartburn (Pepcid), and headache/inflammation (Toradol). That particular package, called "Revive", is the most popular, and recommended for those on their "deathbed". "Look, it's not a miracle cure ... but if you go in feeling like a 2, you come out a half-hour later feeling like a 7, that's a game changer," one repeat customer tells CNN Money.
