FDA Approves Hangover Pill

Friday, 09 Dec 2011 12:40 PM


Just in time for the holiday party season, a new hangover pill called Blowfish has been a hot topic in the U.S. press this week after reportedly being given approval from the Food and Drug Administration to cure post-bender aftereffects.
Blowfish, already available in stores in New York City, is an over-the-counter tablet similar to Alka Seltzer that contains 1,000 milligrams of aspirin, 120 milligrams of caffeine, and a stomach-calming ingredient. Once dissolved in water, Blowfish claims to soothe multiple hangover symptoms in just 15 to 30 minutes, writes the New York Daily News.
US shoppers can expect to see the new pill on shelves in 2012 or can now purchase them online for $2.99 a dose (or $11.99 for a six-pack). Heavy partiers can buy a 25-dose pack for $49.99. Whether or not the product will be available internationally remains to be seen.
Of course, the Washington Post adds that while Blowfish may take the edge off of your hangover, it "won't save you from that annual embarrassing karaoke choice or that regrettable, booze-fueled Airing of Grievances ritual that comes out of cornering your office superiors."
Another product that claims to knock out hangovers is Gtox, a detox shot with Glucarate, a "patented ingredient for Phase-II liver detoxification." Gtox claims it works best taken before sleeping. A pack of four 4-ounce bottles costs $11.99.
According to various blogs and sites, you can quell after-party nausea and headaches by loading up on Coke, coffee, cold pizza, and bananas. Or try taking a hot bath to sweat out boozy toxins, followed by rehydration and balancing of sugar and mineral levels with orange or tomato juice and 600 mg of vitamin C.
Or avoid a hangover altogether by not drinking or drinking no more than one or two alcoholic beverages over the course of an evening. Experts also advise that if you are feeling drunk, lay off the cocktails and load up on water, and avoid bubbly and very sweet alcoholic drinks, which can result in speedy intoxication thanks to their high-sugar content.
