[hang­over] IV treat­ment is a com­plete waste of time,” he says. “You might feel bet­ter, but that is be­cause you just in­jected a bag of wa­ter into your sys­tem. Wa­ter is free. It comes out of your tap at home.”

Burke dis­agrees, ar­gu­ing that the no­tion that a hang­over is strictly due to de­hy­dra­tion is false, cit­ing in­flam­ma­tion in the liver as an­other con­tribut­ing fac­tor. The an­tiox­i­dants and vi­ta­min C in the IV so­lu­tions are said to help this.

As for risks, La­bos adds the dan­ger is nom­i­nal— ex­cept on the pock­et­book. His hang­over cure of choice? Time, plenty of wa­ter and maybe an Advil. It turns out that even the sun­glasses are op­tional.
