How Can IV Hydration Therapy Help Relieve Hangovers?

By: Cyndie Nohr


We all want to enjoy a little bit of fun now and again, but overindulging can lead to a hangover that may disrupt our normal routines for hours – or even days. Not only that, but simply being dehydrated after a night out can cause headaches, nausea, and other hangover symptoms that are disproportionate to the amount of alcohol actually consumed.

At The Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale, registered nurse and wellness expert Cyndie Nohr helps Scottsdale, AZ men and women get back into tip-top shape as quickly and efficiently as possible with customized IV hangover therapy. Read on to learn more about IV therapy after drinking, including how it works, why it’s so effective, and when you can expect to feel back to normal.

What causes a hangover?

A hangover – which refers to the general feeling of malaise, discomfort, or illness after drinking – can be due to a combination of factors. Perhaps the most influential contributing factor to a hangover is dehydration, which is a result of the effects of certain ingredients contained in alcohol. In addition, lack of sleep and acute nutritional deficiencies can exacerbate the symptoms of a hangover – the most common of which include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • GI upset
  • Fatigue
  • General aches, pains, and discomfort

In many cases, the symptoms of a hangover are so intense that patients are unable to work or even get out of bed, which can have obvious negative implications on their productivity and lives overall.

How to get rid of a hangover fast

If you’ve ever experienced a hangover, you are probably familiar with the feeling of just wanting it to “go away” as quickly as possible. While there are many old wives’ tales regarding hangover remedies, most are ineffective or even dangerous. Because we know that dehydration is a primary cause of hangovers, rehydration plays a key role in hangover relief. At The Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale, we offer a customized IV hydration therapy drip to help patients recover from their hangovers and get back to their normal lives within minutes.

How does IV therapy cure a hangover?

Each hangover IV drip (known as the “Day After” cocktail) includes essential vitamins, nutrients, electrolytes, and other ingredients designed to give patients the hydration and nutrition needed to overcome the symptoms of a hangover. While drinking water and eating healthy foods can certainly be beneficial for hangover symptoms, an IV drip is remarkably more efficient and faster-acting, as it bypasses the digestive system and delivers hydration and nutrients to the patient directly via the bloodstream. In fact, most patients feel relief from hangover symptoms within minutes after receiving IV hydration therapy.

Is IV therapy only for hangovers?

No! In addition to helping mitigate hangover discomfort, our customized IV drips can help to boost immunity, improve skin health, increase energy levels, and more. If you are interested in learning more about the wide range of benefits of using IV drip therapy, don’t hesitate to ask one of our knowledgeable team members for additional information.
