Hydrate “Make sure you properly hydrate,” Professor Allsop said. “And that doesn’t mean having a glass of water before you go to bed.
“Be hydrated before you go out. Have a glass of water in between drinks.
“That will slow down your drinking as well.” Eat “Do not drink on an empty stomach,” Professor Allsop suggests.
“The peak blood alcohol level that you reach can make a hangover worse.
“So if you have food in your stomach, it slows down that absorption. So only have alcohol after or with food.” Sleep “Get plenty of rest,” he said. Panadol “You have to be careful when taking panadol with alcohol, so do not overdo it,” Professor Allsop warns.
“It is an occasional symptom relief, it is not a hangover cure.” Caffeine and bad foods “Stay away from food and drinks that may upset your stomach,” he said.
