Hangover Cure Q&A

Why might I need a hangover cure?

A hangover causes uncomfortable symptoms after you consume too much alcohol. For some people, even 1-2 drinks can cause a hangover. Having a hangover is more than a minor inconvenience. It can completely change your plans for the day with symptoms such as:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach and diarrhea
  • Food aversions
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Dehydration
  • Muscle aches

While some hangovers only last a few hours, others can continue for 24 hours or more. A hangover cure relieves your symptoms quickly so that you can enjoy your day without pain or discomfort.

How does IV therapy work as a hangover cure?

IV therapy administers fluids, electrolytes, and other essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream to quickly relieve hangover symptoms. It works in several ways:


Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it increases urine production and leads to fluid and electrolyte loss. IV therapy delivers a saline solution directly into the bloodstream, quickly rehydrating the body.

Nutrient replenishment 

IV therapy includes vitamins and minerals, such as B-complex vitamins and vitamin C, to replenish the body’s vital nutrients. 

Symptom relief

Rehydration and nutrient infusion can help flush out toxins, balance electrolytes, and support the body's natural detoxification processes to relieve headaches, nausea, muscle pain, and many other uncomfortable hangover symptoms.

Rapid absorption

IV therapy bypasses the digestive tract, allowing fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients to reach your bloodstream immediately for rapid absorption and relief.

How quickly does a hangover cure work?

Some people notice their hangover symptoms disappearing within minutes of IV therapy, but it can take a few hours for others. You should continue experiencing relief through the next day, allowing you to feel more refreshed and alert.

How many IV treatments will I need for a hangover?

One IV therapy treatment is typically enough to relieve hangover symptoms. If you’re sensitive to alcohol, the specialists at IV MD may recommend treatments immediately after consuming alcohol. Taking these precautions can help prevent hangover symptoms before they develop. 

IV therapy before your next party may also help keep your body hydrated and minimize the chances of experiencing a hangover the following day. However, it’s important to remember that consuming less alcohol and more water is always the best way to prevent a hangover.
