Yesterday, while Sydney's suburbs were littered with people downing a greasy fry-up or "hair of the dog" in the hope of feeling human again, others were forking out between $140-$200 on a treatment package that pumps saline, sodium, minerals, vitamins, oxygen and anti-nausea medication through their blood.

Sleep.  Water.  More sleep.  More water.  Repeat as required.

Don't get drunk.  Problem solved forever.  Cheapest possible solution to the problem.

That's what I've been doing. It's sad but it was a revelation to me that if I don't drink to excess, I don't feel like crap the next morning. Also another thing I learned is that if I go to sleep at a reasonable hour, I can wake up for work better rested.

As a business it is brilliant, but kind of sad.

A Berocca tablet is usualy a cheaper solution and contains most of the ingreidents listed in that little blurb
