Have a Hangover? IV Therapy Can Help
When a celebratory evening leaves you nursing a hangover the next morning, its symptoms can take you out of commission for the entire day. Learn how IV therapy takes the edge off your symptoms — and helps you recover faster.

Following a long evening of celebratory imbibing with friends, you wake up in the morning feeling fatigued, sluggish, irritable, and achy — and your head is throbbing. While everyone responds differently to alcohol, the post-indulgence hangover is a common experience. 

When you have a hangover, its symptoms can take you out of commission for the entire day, making it impossible to function normally and go about your usual routine. Luckily, you don’t have to let last night’s fun ruin your life today. 

At Fiamo Aesthetics in Yakima, Washington, we can ease disruptive hangover symptoms with IV therapy. Read on as Nawo K. Fiamo, ARNP, explains how a quick intravenous infusion of hydrating saline and anti-inflammatory nutrients helps you feel better faster, so you can leave your hangover behind quickly.    

Common hangover symptoms 

The term “hangover” refers to the set of symptoms that occur after you consume too much alcohol. These symptoms peak after your body is done processing the alcohol — or as your blood alcohol concentration returns to zero.

 A typical hangover lasts 24 hours or longer and includes symptoms like:

  • An intense headache
  • Sensitivity to stimuli 
  • Weak, achy muscles
  • Fatigue and dizziness 
  • Stomach pain and nausea
  • Anxiety or irritability 
  • Elevated blood pressure  

Alcohol consumption gives rise to post-drinking hangover symptoms through several mechanisms, including mild dehydration, low-grade bodily inflammation, gastrointestinal irritation, and disrupted sleep.  

Everyone’s body responds differently to alcohol, so there’s no set number of drinks that lead to a hangover. Instead, it’s drinking to the point of intoxication that increases your chances of experiencing this common post-indulgence problem.  

Take the edge off with IV therapy

Time is the only cure for a hangover. Your symptoms won’t fully resolve until your body finishes clearing the toxic byproducts of alcohol metabolism, repairs irritated tissues, and restores normal immune and brain activity.

IV infusion therapy can accelerate this process by rehydrating your body and giving it a concentrated dose of the antioxidants and nutrients it needs to clear away toxins and repair minor tissue damage more efficiently. 

Our Myers cocktail blend takes the edge off your hangover symptoms and helps you feel better faster by providing:

  • Hydrating saline fluids 
  • High-dose vitamin C
  • B complex vitamins 
  • Magnesium and zinc
  • Glutathione antioxidants  

The Myers cocktail is the very same infusion blend that works so well to boost immune system function and ease your symptoms when you’ve come down with a viral illness. 

Because it rehydrates your body and calms inflammation so quickly, it’s highly effective for alleviating hangover symptoms, too. 

We can’t promise to make your hangover disappear completely (only time can do that), but we’re certain you’ll feel significantly better after your 30-minute IV infusion session.  

Ready for fast hangover relief? 

While basic at-home care can get you through a mild hangover, scheduling a same-day IV therapy session when you have a moderate to severe hangover can be very helpful. 

Simply put, IV infusion therapy is a quick and easy way to deliver soothing fluids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly to your bloodstream — and in turn, straight to the cells that can benefit from them the most — when your body is working to overcome a hangover.
