Hangovers can be brutal. Between the splitting headaches, nausea, and fatigue, one can find themselves feeling miserable as they fight to get through it. There are many “hangover cures” that may or may not work, like grabbing a greasy burger from McDonald’s or drinking significant amounts of water.

There is, however, one method that has some scientific research to back up its benefits for fighting a hangover. That method is known as IV hydration.

What Causes Us to Feel Hungover?

Imagine this: you have just had a great night out with friends, drank a little too much, and are now feeling absolutely miserable the morning after. As you sit in your dark, silent room, waiting for your symptoms to pass, you may wonder why it has to be this way. What about alcohol consumption triggers the symptoms of a hangover?

Hangovers can be caused by a number of different factors, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Gastrointestinal irritation
  • Inflammation
  • Acetaldehyde exposure
  • Mini-withdrawals

The Symptoms of a Hangover

We all know hangovers leave us feeling sick and miserable for what feels like forever. A few symptoms one may experience when hungover can include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea, vomiting, or stomachache
  • Sleep disturbances and fatigue
  • Mood swings, irritability, and low mood
  • Sensitivity to sounds and light
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle aches
  • Foggy thinking

How IV Therapy Can Help Ease the Symptoms of a Hangover

IV therapy can be incredibly useful for reducing the symptoms of a hangover. Because the nutrients needed to speed up hangover recovery can be administered directly into the vein, they will be able to work their way through the bloodstream at a higher concentration and with more efficiency. This can be critical to helping your body recover after a night of drinking has left it suffering.


Hydration IV therapy can help a person experiencing a severe hangover rehydrate their body and replenish lost electrolytes. When you are feeling hungover, water can be difficult to consume, leaving some people feeling even more nauseous than before. However, IV hydration therapy allows a person to receive the fluids and nutrients their body needs for hangover recovery.

Nutrient Absorption

IV therapy allows the body to absorb the administered nutrients much more efficiently and fully than most other methods of administration. Because of this, a person experiencing a hangover can add nutrients their body needs for recovery, such as a Vitamin B Complex or Glutathione, to their hydration IV therapy.

Medication Administration

Along with the nutrients and minerals provided by hydration IV therapy, there are certain medications that can be administered through IV therapy that can treat hangover symptoms like headaches, nausea, vomiting, aches, and pains.
