    I have used pedialite in the past with good results preventing hangovers, I was just at Costco and picked up some zipp fizz and it is a powder you add to your drink that has like 48000% rda of b12 and it advertises rapid rehydration and a bunch of other vitamins. So my question is... Has anyone used this in vegas to prevent hangovers on your trip?

    Our Australian family has always sworn by this now-available-elsewhere "cure all" -- Berocca.

    It's the water, studies suggest. But if the panacea effect of the whatever-product gets people hydrating then in a sense it is part of the curative process.

    I swear by potassium and magnesium, not too much magnesium though you'll get the runs. If you're the type of person that gets the jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations from excess alcohol and lack of food it really helps.

    I think the key ingredient of rehydration liquids is the salt? Could be wrong I've never understood that.

    The most important ingredients in this product are the electrolytes (sodium, potassium and magnesium), the 100 mg of caffeine and of course the water that you are dissolving it in. The rest of the ingredients are pretty much useless in helping with a hangover...including the touted B12. Sure, the B complex of vitamins would be helpful...if you had a chronic drinking problem(alcoholic); for use after an occasional bout of over indulgence...not much help. The only real difference from Pedialyte is the caffeine in the zipp fizz. You could get about the same amount in a strong cup of coffee. Everything being equal, it should work similarly to the Pedialyte.

    Never use pedialite but take zip fizz periodically at home and daily when in Vegas. (sometimes twice a day in Vegas along with an energy drink and I get like this.:banana:)
    Didn't know it was potentially useful for hangovers.

    Trust me, if you drink too much there is no way to prevent a hangover.

    Thank you for the replies. Of course if I don't drink I won't get a hangover but I'm telling you now that's not happening.:wink2:
    I was just curious if there was a difference between the two. I guess I'll be the test dummy.

    Either one would be nice for people that don't check their luggage. Might have to get both for my next trip, and see.

    And, I've also picked up Blowfish. It's a morning after deal. Has caffeine, and some other things in it. It acts like Alkaseltzer, and fizzes. Supposed to help settle the stomach.

    First try is poweraid squirt bottle mix. That or similar works wonders. If really bad, hangover haven with their iv bags. Totally worth it and they pick you up at the hotel.
