Scientists from the UK conducted a study and concluded that there is no panacea for a hangover.
In collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), scientists analyzed the results of clinical studies of 21 anti-hangover drugs found that there is no highly effective anti-hangover drug.
The team also found a number of flaws in research on hangover drugs. Eight of the 21 studies excluded women, and all studies were conducted using different methods and under different conditions (for example, with and without food, different types of alcohol were considered).
Only three drugs showed promising results in comparison with placebo: clove extract, tolfenamic acid and pyritinol. Scientists noted that these treatments will need to undergo rigorous clinical research.
