Do IV Hangover Drips Really Work?

One of the most frequent questions that I get when people learn what we do for a living is, “do IV hangover drips really cure a hangover?” Getting a hangover IV drip are the best cure for hefty hangovers. Let’s delve a little deeper into what a hangover actually is and why you feel so poorly after a night of over-indulgence.

A hangover is the response your body has to a night of excessive alcohol consumption and can vary in degrees of severity. The most common hangover symptom is a headache. Typically, the worse your headache, the more severe your hangover can be. You can also have other symptoms such as nausea with or without vomiting, as well as indigestion or heartburn, making eating nearly impossible.

We know from experience that binge drinking can cause a hangover, but what is the physiological reason for feeling this way. The reason you feel terrible is that alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes your body to eliminate water in the form of urine. The more alcohol you drink, the more you pee, which then leads to dehydration. A hangover is a severe case of dehydration, and the symptoms that you experience are caused by dehydration.


IV hydration is the quickest and most effective way to rehydrate after a hard night of drinking. Additionally, the medications that we add to the hangover IV drip are specifically designed to eliminate nausea, and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication is used to reduce your headache. We also include some vitamins to help give you an energy boost so that you can get on with your day.
