IVs For Hangovers

Updated: Jun 1, 2023

Are you suffering from a hangover after some late-night indulgence? Does recovery take a bit longer than when you were younger? Hangovers are pretty common after the consumption of excessive alcohol. This results in an unpleasant next day for the one suffering. Even worse, if you have a full day of work that needs to be tackled, kids that want your attention, or anything that requires your full attention.

Is it possible to get rid of hangovers with the IV treatment? If yes, how and where can one receive this treatment? Let’s explore the topic in more detail to find some answers.

What Causes A Hangover?

The presence of Ethanol in alcohol is the cause of a hangover. Ethanol is the chemical that alcohol turns into once alcohol is consumed in the body. As your digestive system breaks down Ethanol, it produces a byproduct known as acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is further decomposed into a compound known as acetate. This causes a diuretic effect which makes you pee more often. As a result, your body suffers from dehydration.

What Are The Symptoms of Hangover?

The most common symptoms of a hangover are:

  • Headache: Headaches may be caused by either the blood vessel’s expansion or dehydration. Headaches are also responsible for increasing your sensitivity toward bright lights or noises.

  • Thirst: The dehydration due to the diuretic effects of alcohol can cause excessive thirst and a dry mouth. IV drips can solve this issue by directly introducing fluids into blood vessels.

  • Fatigue: Drinking alcohol results in reduced sugar levels in the body. That’s why you may feel tired and weak.

  • Nausea and Vomiting: Alcohol can damage the stomach in many ways. Most importantly, it slows down the emptying of the stomach. That’s why experiencing stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting is quite common.

  • No Appetite: Alcohol produces an inflammatory response in your immune system. It results in decreased appetite and can also cause memory problems.

So, what do you need to recover from a hangover? Headache relief, nausea relief, and rapid rehydration, which can help bring you back to life.

Treating Hangovers With IVs

IV drips are a fast and effective solution for a hangover. The Myer’s cocktail is the most effective IV drip to treat a hangover. The combination of antioxidant glutathione and vitamins in Myer’s cocktail provides necessary fluids to the body so you can rapidly recover.

The Hangover Drip tackles the symptoms of nausea and discomfort, as well as dehydration. The vitamins in this IV directly treat symptoms as well as boost your energy levels, so that you can be productive or just help to get you through your day.

Response To The Treatment

The IV drip we suggest for hangover treatment contains B vitamins including Thiamine, Vitamin C, and minerals such as magnesium. The vitamins, minerals, fluids and select medications target each symptom of the hangover. Clients usually report relief of symptoms a few minutes into the treatment and start to feel better, even regaining an appetite.

While suffering from a hangover, clients want to get some relief from the symptoms as soon as possible. IV therapy can help restore and rejuvenate rapidly because of the direct access to the bloodstream, more efficient than oral medications. As a result, clients feel relief sooner and suffer less.
