Is it true there's no cure for a hangover?

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We've heard vitamin B, bloody marys, mac-n-cheese, greasy burgers and ginger ale can help ease the pain of a morning after, say, an extremely generous bartender pours and pours. But just before Christmas British researchers found that "No compelling evidence exists to suggest that any complementary or conventional intervention is effective for treating or preventing alcohol hangover." Which we think is just a damn shame. Particularly this morning. What works for you? Tell us. Please.
