Most doctors will admit that there is no known cure for
the common hangover. Time and patience is all it takes for your liver to filter out all those nasty alcohol byproducts from your system after a wild night on the town.

Besides water and aspirin, (along with mild exercise, say some experts), classic cures include the traditional "hair of the dog" cure for a hangover that may include another shot of alcohol in the morning to dull the pain and calm your nerves.
