The drugs might work

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Top Ten -

For many of the overly hun­gover, the medicine cab­i­net is the first port of call. A num­ber of over-the-counter drugs can al­le­vi­ate some of the side-ef­fects of a heavy ses­sion: as­pirin, ibupro­fen, alka seltzer and be­rocca are just a few. Ap­par­ently dur­ing the Cold War the Rus­sian Academy of Sci­ences spent 25 years re­search­ing and de­vel­op­ing a ‘mir­a­cle’ drug called RU-21, for KGB agents who wanted to stay sober while get­ting their con­tacts drunk. It failed, but is by all ac­counts a very ef­fec­tive hang­over cure.
