Any remedies for a hangover in preparation for Purim morning and Shushan Purim?February 15, 2010 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #674213jewish and working 22Member
A Bloody Mary (tomato juice, Tabasco sauce, ground black pepper, and a shot of vodka).
It is scientifically proven that the best remedy for a hangover is to drink a little alcohol the next morning. It thins the blood we will relieve the headache and nausea. After drinking, drink water to rehydrate yourself (a by product of drinking is that you dehydrate yourself). You should try to drink water while you drink the night before, so that you won’t be dehydrated the next morning.February 15, 2010 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #674214
I’m not so sure additional alcohol has been proven as a remedy. The nausea comes from gastritis secondary to the irritating influence of the alcohol on the stomach lining. I doubt if additional irritation will relieve the problem.
The tabasco sauce and pepper don’t seem like they will do much good for the gastritis either.
Hydration sure helps though.February 15, 2010 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #674215
From the LiveScience website:
Don’t believe the folklore remedy that drinking more alcohol will cure your hangover.
More alcoholic drinks will only boost the existing toxicity of the alcohol already in one’s body…
With a hangover, you’re most likely suffering from dehydration and a deficiency of important minerals like magnesium and potassium. Symptoms of dehydration include headache, cottonmouth, lightheadedness, and thirst. Drinking water and sports drinks will help you replenish your fluids, according to the NIAAA.
You may also feel queasy. Alcohol is also an irritant and can cause inflammation of the stomach lining and gastrointestinal discomfort.
These symptoms become worse if someone has consumed beverages with more alcohol content like shots of whiskey, as opposed to more dilute drinks such as beer.February 15, 2010 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #674216
Take a couple of ADVIL before going to bed on Megillah night, and make asure to be well-hydrated with Powerade. The best cure is prevention, however/ Don’t drink so much that you will get a hangover.February 15, 2010 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #674217
I also would definitely say NO ADVIL which is a well known stomach irritant and known to even cause gastrointestinal bleeding in some people. Tylenol is definitely preferred.February 15, 2010 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm #674218
Whatever the doctor on TV said, ibuprofen is well known to have irritative tendencies on the gastric lining. Useless advice is fine to be posted here but not dangerous advice…80February 15, 2010 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #674219
from the Mayo Clinic website:
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) and naproxen (Aleve), can cause both acute gastritis and chronic gastritis…
Alcohol can irritate and erode your stomach lining, which makes your stomach more vulnerable to digestive juices. Excessive alcohol use is more likely to cause acute gastritis.February 15, 2010 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #674220goody613Member

i heard pickle juice works. has anyone ever tried this? it if it works i might try it but im not experimentingFebruary 16, 2010 12:00 am at 12:00 am #674222
Pickle juice can be pretty acidic, especially if vinegar based. Doesn’t sound too good to me.February 16, 2010 12:07 am at 12:07 am #674223
dark, insulated room
also have someone take a video of you at the height of the hangover. watch it next year before PurimFebruary 16, 2010 12:13 am at 12:13 am #674224
hangovers come with the territory of getting drunk. i dont need a video. ive experienced them before and their terrible and i tell myself i wont drink again but purim is purim and theres no way im not drinkin purimFebruary 16, 2010 12:23 am at 12:23 am #674225
Drink in moderation, if you need to drink on Purim (don’t drink too much) set a limit this way you will not get to the hangover stage.February 16, 2010 1:31 am at 1:31 am #674226
There is no mitzvah to get a hangover on Purim.February 16, 2010 1:39 am at 1:39 am #674227
yank. no one said there was and its not an aveira. but there is a mitzva to get drunk by the seuda. there is no mitzva to play basketball or bake cookies either. plenty of things we do arent mitzvas but arent aveiras. this is a digression of the topic at hand though. discussing drinking too much should be done on the drinking threads. this thread is here to help the people who do get hangovers from drinking too much on purim whether u agree with it or notFebruary 16, 2010 2:15 am at 2:15 am #674228aries2756Participant
There is no mitzva to get drunk. So if you stay within the framework of the mitzva to drink wine at the seudah you won’t have to worry about a hangover. The remedy is simple DON’T GET DRUNK!February 16, 2010 2:20 am at 2:20 am #674229
aries: “ad lo yada”.February 16, 2010 2:37 am at 2:37 am #674230
ad d’lo yada is a nebulous term. It might simply mean that one is more loopy than usual. As I said my Rov says it is sufficient to be buzzed or feeling sleepy. If you would have a person sit in front of a driving simulator after two drinks, they would probably fail the simulated test, as their reaction time would be skewed, along with their judgment. THAT is what ad d’lo yada implies. Too many people use that “mitzvah” as an excuse to get stoned. Would that they were as dedicated to the observance of the mitzvos of honesty and chessed.February 16, 2010 3:11 am at 3:11 am #674231goody613Member
i heard from rav fishel shachter that when it says ad d’lo yada it is ad v’lo ad b’chlal.February 16, 2010 6:14 am at 6:14 am #674234anuranParticipant
Start with what you drink and how you drink.
Clear spirits are better. Gin, vodka and rum don’t pick up congeners, terpenes and other nasties from the wood like brandy or whisky.
Your body can only process so much alcohol per hour. The amount depends on your mass, your gender, your age and how lean you are; muscle is better than fat.
Eat while you drink. Fats, fish, meat or milk are good. Stay away from salt which will make you drink more. So is bread. The B-vitamins in bread help replace what the alcohol is destroying.
In the morning, water, aspirin, more B-vitamins and sugars.February 17, 2010 4:05 am at 4:05 am #674235HealthParticipant
To prevent a hangover headache: Take a pill of Advil or two aspirin before you go to sleep -Don’t take any Tylenol!February 17, 2010 4:19 am at 4:19 am #674236
It would seem that more people than only myself recommended Advil (gastric upset notwithstanding).Tylenol is like chiclets to a hangover.February 17, 2010 8:34 am at 8:34 am #674237
The best thing to do for a hangover is to hydrate. Water replaces moisture lost. Feverfew is good for headaches. Lime Aid with lots of Limes with sugar or honey is also good for a hangover.February 17, 2010 9:58 am at 9:58 am #674238bombmaniacParticipant
sleep and drink…and think about how bad you feel so you wont get drunk in the future!!!February 17, 2010 10:25 am at 10:25 am #674239A600KiloBearParticipant
Here in Ukraine, we just go back to the pharmacy the next morning and get MORE 96’er!February 17, 2010 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #674241jphoneMember
Dont drink. You wont need a remedy!February 17, 2010 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #674242bptParticipant
Ask someone to take a picture of you in your stupor. That will cure you next year!
