The Morning After......Drinking All Night
If you're anything like me, you've had 1 too many drinks before and woke up trying anything to get the feeling to go away!! Well here's one more thing to try!!
This obviously (if not quite overtly) hangover-specific variety of Alka-Seltzer contains 130 milligrams of caffeine, which helps shrink the swollen blood vessels that cause your head to pound like a jackhammer. The caffeine also enhances the potency of the 1,000 mg of aspirin per dose, at least according to the National Headache Foundation (cited, naturally, by Alka-Seltzer). Then there's the glass of water you drop the tablets in, which helps make up for the caffeine's diuretic effect—a healthy little system of checks and balances the boozehounds who founded this country would've been proud of.
