Dodging the hangover: How to make The Morning After less brutal

By WTOP, Jack Pointer December 28, 2017


WASHINGTON — For too many, Jan. 1 marks their first (if not their only) hangover of the year.

The headache, the nausea, the general malaise — that dreaded condition makes it impossible to enjoy the televised parades and bowl games. Everything is too bright and too loud andturn off that light and shut up, please.

Feeling like#$%@is the price you pay for proudly screaming an offkey “Auld Lang Syne” in public.

But can’t you get a discount on that price? How can you have some guaranteed no-consequences fun on New Year’s Eve?

“If I had the answer to that, I’d probably be on my yacht somewhere,” saidDr. Robert Shesser,chairman of the emergency medicine department at George Washington University’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences.“We don’t have the answers to what has been shown to be scientifically effective at reducing the hangover.”

Sigh. Noted. So while science has yet to find that hangover cure, you’re left with anecdotal methods (a few of which have some scientific backing).

Just take what you can get.

Here’s a rundown of ways that you can both 1) prepare for the big night and 2) survive The Day After.


Can’t hurt to try it, Part 5: It’s hard to hydrate when you can’t hold anything down, so why not bypass the tummy with an IV? Schedule an appointment with The I.V. Doc, and they’ll hook you up in the morning. Dr. Diva Nagula tried the service himself one year ago in Las Vegas, and he liked it so much that he brought a franchise to D.C.

“My physician friends and myself have always joked around about starting a business like this when we were in training,” he told WTOP, “because I think one time or another a physician has received infusions or intravenous therapies and has always known the benefits of it.”

Such fluid treatment “does seem to improve people clinically faster than giving it by mouth,” said Shesser, who added that it might be a placebo effect. But with 20 locations (and celebrity clients), it’s fair to say that The I.V. Doc might be on to something.
