You made a mistake, overdid it a bit last night and now you feel miserable. You’re suffering from a condition called “acute alcohol withdrawal”—more popularly known as a hangover. Don’t get side-lined by headaches, nausea, and brain fog. Let us help you feel better fast! We’ll speak softly and start rapidly rehydrating your body with 1 liter of normal saline crystalloid. For that splitting headache, we’ll give you back the B vitamins and minerals your body may be missing after last night.
Alcohol induces a state of dehydration in the body by inhibiting the hormone ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) secreted by the pituitary gland. This causes frequent urination, hence all the trips you make to the bathroom while drinking. Aggressive re-hydration is very important in acute alcohol withdrawal recovery. Replacements of other key nutrients like folate (B9), riboflavin (B2), thiamine (B1), cobalamin (B12), zinc and magnesium have also been shown to reduce the symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal.
