Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning that it dehydrates and removes nutrients from your body. Tissues in your body shrink, especially in the brain, which leads to headaches and muscle aches. At the same time, your liver produces toxins that can lead to body-wide discomfort. Excessive alcohol consumption – especially when fluids are not being replaced – dehydrates the body more quickly and leads to the symptoms of a
hangover.

Symptoms of hangovers include:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Dizziness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Muscle aches
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Changes in mood

The symptoms of hangovers start when the blood alcohol level dips near zero and can last up to 24 hours. Staying hydrated is the best way to prevent a hangover, but if you’ve already woken up with a pounding headache and a sour stomach, you’ll most likely be looking for a way to relieve symptoms quickly.

Hangovers are hard on the body but recovery doesn’t have to be. Drip Hydration’s Hangover IVs contain electrolytes, saline solution, vitamins, and anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medication. This combination of ingredients rehydrates and detoxifies your body and restores nutrients and electrolytes lost during drinking. The medications in this IV, meanwhile, bring relief from your symptoms within an hour of treatment.
