If you go out for a night on the town, dance till the wee hours of the morning, and drink too much alcohol, you might end up with a headache. That’s just one symptom of a hangover.
Research shows there are a whopping 2.6 billion hangovers annually in the United States.
The good news is that symptoms that accompany a hangover will eventually go away on their own. But the bad news is that it could take 24 hours or more for that to happen. If your hangover is so severe that you can’t go to work or do other necessary things, you’ll want faster relief.
One way you can get relief — perhaps within as soon as an hour — is to get IV hydration therapy. It’s a way to treat hangover symptoms intravenously. When you go this route, a medical professional will administer the IV fluid into your bloodstream to help you feel better faster.
Continue reading to look at three hangover symptoms you can treat with IV hydration therapy.
One of the symptoms of a hungover is nausea. If you’re nauseous, you might want to bend over and vomit. What can you do if you feel nauseous after a night of drinking too much? One option is to drink as much liquid — non-alcoholic, of course — as you can take in. You might not feel like drinking water if you’re feeling nauseous. That’s where IV hydration therapy comes into the picture. Alcohol is a diuretic that causes your body to get rid of fluids from the blood courtesy of your renal system. But booking an IV hydration therapy appointment will quickly rehydrate your body so that you overcome nausea sooner than would otherwise be the case.
Many people who get hangovers complain about headaches — splitting headaches. If you’ve experienced a headache as a result of drinking too much, you know that the severtity can be amost overwhelming. Taking over-the-counter pain medication might provide some relief. So, if you have any Aspirin or ibuprofen in your medicine cabinet, use as recommended on the bottle.
It’s essential that you only take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Refrain from taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) for a hangover-related headache because the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen can jeopardize your liver.
Another option to treat a headache caused by a hangover is IV hydration therapy. The service provider will document your symptoms and ensure the IV fluids have the right medicine, vitamins, and minerals to help you overcome any headaches that might be plaguing you.
3. Excessive Thirst
After a hangover, you might find yourself experiencing excessive thirst. You won’t just have a parched mouth. Drinking too much alcohol will negatively impact the fluid level in your body. That’s why it’s best to drink lots of water before and after going out to party with friends. So, it goes without saying that you’ll need to replenish fluids lost due to overindulgence in alcohol. An effective way to do this is through IV hydration therapy. It’s quick and effective.
You can either visit a facility near you that provides this procedure or find a service provider that provides in-home service. The trained medical professional who comes to your home will have all the equipment needed to administer the treatment you need to get better. If a hangover has you feeling under the weather, you’ll appreciate the convenience of in-home IV therapy.
While partying the night away with friends can be fun, getting a hangover isn’t. But knowing what to do if you experience hangover symptoms is a good thing. There are different things you can do to treat these often debilitating symptoms. One of them is to book an appointment with a provider of IV hydration therapy.
