Hair of the Dog: Hangover Cure to Debut...After the Holidays

The Federal Drug Administration in the United States has approved the sale of the first over-the-counter remedy for a hangover, but you'll have to wait until after the Holidays are over before you can purchase it in stores!

The agency approved the new effervescent tablets to be sold under the name BlowChunks  Blowfish. The Alka-Seltzer-like product dissolves in water and can be taken the morning after a bout of heavy drinking and comes in convenient packages of two tablets (which you can keep in your wallet along with that condom you've kept in there for the past several years). 

The tablets contain 500 mg of aspirin and 60 mg of caffeine to stop that incessant pounding in your head as well as a stomach-calming medication to keep those pesky dry heaves at bay, so you can spend your morning doing more useful things than hugging the Porcelain God!  Blowfish also claims to help restore mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness associated with a hangover. (How much do you want to bet that the product features in the upcoming film The Hangover III?)

Other, similar medications have been on the market for a while, but the product is considered a new drug by the FDA because of its packaged combination of ingredients. For more information on the product, you may visit their website Blowfish Cure of the Common Hangover.
