FDA APPROVED HANGOVER CURE
We’ve all been there. You wake up in the morning dazed and confused, and as you stumble off the couch you seemingly fell asleep on because at the time your bedroom seemed too far away, you step on a few beer cans. Every inch of your body aches like you were that guy who tried to rob the MMA fighter.. and honestly since you have no idea what happened the night before, that really could have been you. Your head is throbbing, your stomache is upset, and you promise God if he relieves your headache, you’ll never drink again.
Hangovers are amongst the most painful and resilient aliments known to man. And can you believe that although modern science seems to discover a new disease cure every day, no one has been able to cure the pain you feel after a straight tequila night? Well, that may be about to change..
The FDA has officially approved an over-the-counter drug called Blowfish, which contains 1,000 milligrams of aspirin, 120 milligrams of caffeine and a stomach-soothing agent in the form of two dissolving tablets. The new drug is taken like Alka-Seltzer and is said to help ease hangover symptoms within a little as 15 to 30 minutes.
“So many people see hangovers as a shameful or embarrassing thing. I think of them as just a fact of life,” said Brenna Haysom, the creator of Blowfish through the West Village-based Rally Labs LLC.
“The magic of the effervescent tablet is that it hits your system much faster than getting a cup of coffee, taking an antacid and taking some aspirin separately,” she said.
The remedy doesn’t give free reign to binge, however. “I definitely don’t encourage people to get obliterated,” warned Haysom, who has been hung up on hangovers since college.
“This is a really effective product for people who have a couple too many: A happy hour that goes a little long, or holiday parties are a perfect example … and they wake up feeling terrible. This gets you functioning again quickly.”
In other words, modern medicine has created another miracle.
Do you have a surefire hangover cure? Or will you give Blow-fish a try? I mean what’s it gonna hurt?
