DOES IT WORK: HANGOVER CURES

Those IV recovery services in Las Vegas, New York City, and elsewhere, do they work? Men's Health asked doctors about them and other purported cures. Here's what they found:

4 stars - IV - Alcohol, a diuretic, dries you out
An IV of a saline solution speeds what drinking fluids does. But save the $200 and drink electrolyte-rich liquids like Gatorade or coconut water.

4 stars - Over-the-counter Meds
Alka-Seltzer for your gut, ibuprofen for your headache, Tylenol can irritate your stomach and cause liver damage. Borrow your girlfriend's lavender oil; smelling it can calm you.

3 stars - Greasy foods
Food aids recovery. But healthy is better: Try nutrient-dense foods: leafy greens, proteins, or PB on toast. Eat a pear before drinking; it can help deter damage form alcohol, studies show.

1 star - Coffe
Caffeine helps with some headaches. But it can interfere with sleep, which is essential for recovery. Go back to bed. No Bloody Mary either; hair of the dog is a myth.
