Just in time for New Year’s Eve revelers, the FDA has approved the ”the other morning after pill.”
The pill was comprised of “aspirin, caffeine, and a medicine to calm your stomach. Amazingly, it reportedly works in 15 minutes as well.
This newest, and highly touted hangover cure is called Blowfish and is expected to be in drug stores shortly. The US Food and Drug Administration has given it the okay to be sold over-the-counter. Its creator, Brenna Haysom, explains that the tablets consist of 1,000 milligrams of aspirin, 120 milligrams of caffeine and a stomach-soothing agent split up into two effervescent tablets to be taken the morning after a night of heavy drinking. Despite the product slogan, ‘Own the night. Save the day’ Miss Haysom denies that the treatment promotes binge drinking and she doesn’t encourage overuse, adding ‘I definitely don’t encourage people to get obliterated.’

# Painkillers and Antacids
Alcohol is an irritant to the stomach, so aspirin and ibuprofen (also irritants) may make matters worse. Over-the-counter antacids will protect your stomach lining and ease acid indigestion. Meanwhile, a couple of Tylenol should quell that brain-splitting headache.
# Back to Bed
You drank way too much, so you deserve a good rest. This is especially good if you can find someone to wait on your every need.
Hangover sufferers regularly eat tomatoes (soup, pasta sauce, raw, etc.) to ease their symptoms. They’re rich in vitamin C, which gets depleted after a night of drinking. This may explain why the classic morning-after drink, Bloody Mary, is so popular.
# Hair of the Dog
Did you know that Jan. 1 is also National Bloody Mary Day? Nothing helps a hangover like a little “hair of the dog,”
This is not one for the faint-hearted. Research has shown that it works – but only temporarily. While your body is busy dealing with a new intake of booze, it suspends its torture. But once you stop drinking you’re likely to go back to hangover hell.
# Fruit Juice
Juice, especially freshly-squeezed, works well because it replaces lost vitamins, the fruit sugar (fructose) boosts your energy levels, and it may play a part in speeding up your body’s toxin-ridding process.
# Roll in the Hay
When you’ve tried all else (better still, before) get together with, or on top of, the one you love. The exercise will get your blood flowing. And the rest, well you know what that does. When you’re done, you can down a big drink of water and slip back into a peaceful slumber.
