What do you folks do to reduce the effects of dehydration? I saw a post by Lt. Dish last night where she downed a Gatorade and took some Excedrin as a 'Pre-emptive strike'.
That could be a bad idea. Excedrin contains acetaminophen (a.k.a. Tylenol), and mixing alcohol with acetaminophen carries the risk of significant liver damage. The risk is worse for people who are fairly heavy drinkers (for example, the sort of people who regularly drink so much that they have nasty hangovers).
Greetings! I'm back from W. PA. It's just as I left it the last time, and that's a comforting thing.
Yes, Shyster's correct. I figure my risk is low since I'm a very light social drinker and get a good load-on requiring a hangover remedy very rarely these days (maybe once a year, and that's optimistic). I'm small and it doesn't take much. Last Saturday night's was my 2012 bender, in under the wire. I'll add that I had a ton of water before I left the partay. At any rate, the G2 and Excedrin did the trick.
Back in the day at PSU we'd always stop at Roy Rogers for a large pink lemonade before heading home. It was miraculous. Or maybe we were so drunk we fooled ourselves into thinking so.
