How to Care for a Hangover. That headache, nausea, thirst and fatigue you feel are all symptoms of dehydration. Follow these steps to eliminate those symptoms and get back to feeling your best.

Things You'll Need

  • Aspirins
  • Ibuprofen
  • Multivitamins
  • Sports Drinks
  • Sports drinks

Drink water as soon as you get up in the morning to rehydrate yourself. If possible, have a sports drink. The electrolytes and nutrients in a sports drink can replenish your body's depleted reserves.

Drink even more water if you plan to have coffee. Caffeine is a mild diuretic and can contribute to dehydration.

Stick to liquids that are at room temperature. Drinks that are excessively hot or cold will be even more of a shock to your struggling stomach.

Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as aspirin or ibuprofen to relieve a pounding headache or body aches.

Eat easily digestible foods when you're ready. Fresh fruit, toast and water-based soups are all easy on the stomach. Harder-to-digest foods such as eggs and milk can cause stomach problems.

Relax, rest or go back to bed. Allow some time for your body to feel positive effects from your treatments.

Tips & Warnings

  • Take preventive measures beforehand: Drink responsibly and in moderation. If you've drunk in excess and suspect you'll be hung over the next morning, drink a few glasses of water right before you go to bed.
  • Rehydrate yourself with liquids that are at room temperature. Drinks that are excessively hot or cold will make your struggling stomach work even more.
  • Do not take an acetaminophen-based painkiller to relieve symptoms. Combining acetaminophen and alcohol can damage your liver. Consider ibuprofen instead.
  • If you are an excessive drinker, use caution when taking any over-the-counter painkillers.
