Re: Any way to prevent headache after drinking?

Try drinking a glass of water every couple of drinks. Alcohol-related headaches are often due to dehydration since alcohol sucks out the water in your system. This is especially true for hangovers but I would imagine it would work in the short term.

Another good bet is to take 1 Aleve before you go out. But if you do, be careful not to drink too much.

Re: Any way to prevent headache after drinking?

one big fyi here,under no cicumsances should you take any tylenol products either right before or after you drink.that combo really hits your liver hard. i would "imagine"? one aleeve or advil before,way before you drink might be okay(tho this does hit your kidneys and some liver functions too). but hydration IS the most important thing for your body,during and after you drink. you just lose alot of fluid since alcohol acts like a diuretic. i do agre with the above poster in that drinking one drink then having a glass of water,then alcohol, might be the best way to do this. just alays make certain you have a designated driver when you are going to be drinking. planning ahead can literally save your life and the lives of other innocent people who also share the road with you. now party on.

I experimented with the same amount, from the other night, but drank water before bed and no discomfort to speak of.

Thanks!
