    I tried Pedialyte last year after reading about it on here and got to say the stuff bloody well works.

    Get the unflavored pedialyte and mix your booze in it. At home I freeze it into ice cubes, use it in drinks. It replaces the electrolytes you piss out when you drink because alcohol is a diuretic and your blood chemistry gets all whacked (duh!) and thus contributes to the headaches.

    It won't stop nor prevent reverse peristalsis (puking up knee cartilage) or waking up in a dumpster behind the Riviera and no wallet, though.

    Yeah you can get it at the pharmacies. There are several on the strip. It works for preventing the headache.

    I haven't gone the pedialyte route yet but I am trying it this weekend. First stop is at Walgreens for a tall boy, bottle of whiskey and a pedialyte.

    I'll be trying it out this weekend for the first time. So you should drink it before drinking, during and before you pass out?

    Turns out the college kids also know about Pedialyte....perhaps they started this "fad"?

    Always seems to be in the baby formula section when I buy it... I've taken to the powder, as I can easily keep it in my bag. It's like $8 for six-(6) of the tubes I think.

    Unfortunately, I am in the minority and can't stand the taste of pedialyte...that stuff makes me want to puke. For me, it'll just have to be Gatorade.

    That is how I buy it as well. I slug down a glass of the mixed Pedialyte and then chase it with another glass of plain water. So far so good, never had a hangover when doing this.

    I too use the powder packs...mix it with a bottle of water, shake it up, pound it before bed...feel great in the AM.

    Did it last weekend and felt amazing the morning after binging for 13 hours straight...

    That stuff works and works well.

    I learned this trick here a few years ago and now people at work know about it from me. We now judge happy hours by whether Pedialyte was necessary.

    I can't take credit for the fad but I remember drinking that stuff to recover back in 2008 my first year away at college. I had just transferred as a member of the golf team and 6am practice came in a rush after a late night out til 2am boozing so we'd all pound a bottle of pedialyte before we hit the course for practice and would feel like a million bucks a couple holes in. Glad I found in back then as it's saved me plenty of days over the past 6+ Years!

    :beer: :drunk:

    Whoa! Did not know about this! The things you learn on this board:beer: I got so many good tips on different beers to try on my upcoming trip. Thinking the pedialyte might be a good antidote !

    Surprisingly, the flavored one mixes well with vodka. A lady friend of mine likes her mixed with Ciroc red berry.

    If it's who I think you are talking about, I can mix her that drink all day long......
