Kiss goodbye to hangovers with this neat trick


Let’s be honest, hangovers aren’t the same when you hit 30. They are progressively worse. When I say worse, I mean at first you think you’re going to die, then you hope you’re going to die and in the end you’re scared you actually have to live through the thumping head ache, nausea and deep regret about the last three or five shots you downed.


Okay, okay, we probably should know better post 30 but hey, it happens. Trust me, I know.


So when my friend told me about one simple trick that could stop me from cursing the day I was born on the morning after I was more than keen to try it. I mean, wouldn’t you?


Cue Dr Patch. This clear little plastic patch promises to contain 12 organic, all-natural ingredients, meaning all the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants you need to keep hangover at bay by the pure virtue of wearing one when on a session. Sounds too good to be true? Yes. Can it still work? Sure.


Hangovers are a frightful combination of dehydration, an inflammatory response by the immune system to alcohol, stomach irritation, drop in blood sugar and the loss of vitamins and minerals. The loss of  these different nutrients adversely affects the central nervous system, which can leave you feeling even more run down.


The obvious way to prevent a hangover is to not drink booze, but for a craft beer freak and a wine lover like myself that is just not an option. So what’s a girl to do?


Well, this.



Here’s what you do: you pop the patch from Dr Patch on before you head out, and keep it on for at least 8 hours after you’ve stopped “socialising”, but don’t exceed 24 hours. And while you’re at it, stay hydrated with some water in addition to your booze. Like, a glass per pint, for example.


The blend of Acai Berry, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B1 and Green Tea Extract are absorbed from the patch, through the outer layers of skin, and into deeper layers. There, it is absorbed into the blood stream and circulated through the body.


And this, ladies and gentlemen, should help you to avoid a hangover the day after the night before.


Yeah yeah yeah, but does it work?


I’ll be honest, I have no idea if the science behind this patch is sound enough, but what I do know is that when I wore the patch on a night out where I drank my way through a beer festival and finished the night with a few glasses of bubbly and some shots (I’m not sure how many) I lived to tell the tale. I mean sure, I definitely knew I had had too much to drink but I could get out of bed, have breakfast, go out for errands and basically have a pretty normal day. No headache, no nausea, maybe a little wobble every now and again but nothing compared to what it would have been without the patch.


Could the effect be psychosomatic? Of course it could. But you know what? I don’t give two hoots. If these bad boys can keep the hangovers at bay, I’m sold. Cheers Alex for sending me some to try 🙂


Want to give them a try? Get in touch with the guys for some.

    I don’t drink but have heard nasty tales about hangovers. Hopefully your post will help someone deal with their post-drinking-spree-nightmare:)

  • Carol Cassara February 21, 2017 at 2:15 am

    This is perfect after a night out in the town drinking your brains out. It’s definitely good advice. I no longer drink heavily, but I’m sure this will help plenty of people out.

  • deb February 20, 2017 at 7:54 pm

    Haha I don’t get hangovers as much, but this is gonna come in handy on my birthdya night 😀

  • Sheri February 19, 2017 at 7:21 pm

    Very interesting and I can think of some people who may need this. For me, I hardly drink and when I do, never to the point of a hangover.

  • kay February 19, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    that’s genius! I will have to give this a try!

  • Jenni Petrey February 19, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    This was really interesting. Fortunately I don’t drink all that often so touch wood I haven’t had a hangover in quite a while!

  • Deal Man February 19, 2017 at 11:01 am

    Good Post. Last week my friends hangovers full on.

  • MishyV February 18, 2017 at 7:19 pm

    I should try this! No matter how often or how much I drink I always get hangover (even tho I wasn’t drunk at all the night before) 🙁 So I’ll give it a go!

  • Jasmin N February 18, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    I believe in Stinson’s hangover fixer elixir hahah! Okay yeah, on serious matter this was super interesting 😀 I should definitely try this out when I’m having hangover next 😀

  • Author Brandi Kennedy February 18, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    This is pretty cool, and I bet they would be equally helpful when recovering from dehydrating illnesses – such as a stomach flu or other irritation. What a great concept!

  • Maemuna sadaf February 18, 2017 at 4:21 pm


  • Ashley February 18, 2017 at 3:52 pm

    LOL this was interesting! I have some friends who need this in their lives

  • Elien February 18, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    What a cool product! I love to drink a glass of white wine every day haha 🙂 Well it sure is interesting! Great post!

  • Sabine February 18, 2017 at 2:40 pm

    Wow seems like magic almost. Great honest review!
    Im not drinking at the moment since I’m pregnant, but I will remember it for afterwards:)

  • Sandra Tsai February 18, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    Oooh that’s a pretty cool product! I personally never suffer from any horrible hangovers, but def know a couple people who could use this! Haha 🙂

  • Nora February 18, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    I have never tried these but I’ve found one natural way that helps. If I’ve been drinking I always drink a class of water with multivitamin pill and eat one pear. I don’t know why I’ve had this routine at the beginning but it really makes hangovers milder than if I skip those. Maybe it’s because of nutrients of pear and hydrating my body? 🙂

    This is a neat trick. I will have to try sharing this with my friend.

  • Ashely February 18, 2017 at 1:26 am

    Hangovers are not the same in your 30s that’s for sure! I don’t drink that much anymore for that reason lol!

  • Amber Myers February 18, 2017 at 12:39 am

    How interesting. I rarely get drunk, but I’ll keep this in mind in case it happens.

  • Annie February 17, 2017 at 8:35 pm

    I don’t drink myself, but I learned that if people vomit and after drink tons of water before passing out in bed, usually wake up without a hangover. lol

    • Katja February 17, 2017 at 9:32 pm

      That does not sound pleasant! I’ll rather use some patches and avoid that

  • Eazynazy February 17, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    I don’t drink but still love to gather information about new things .thanx for sharing

  • Maya February 17, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    I’ll definitely have to try this one day! The only thing that’s helped prevent hangovers for me is drinking a ton of water and even that doesn’t help with anything stronger than rum :/ lol

  • Hirak February 17, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    Lovely find not sure if this is available in India. A must for everyone .

  • Robin February 17, 2017 at 2:24 pm

    I solve this problem by sipping on one flute of champagne or other drink all night long. Problem solved!

    • Katja February 17, 2017 at 2:34 pm

      I wish I could have one flute of champagne all night – but as I can’t I’m happy to have these patches to help me in my plight the next day! 😀

  • Thecla February 17, 2017 at 1:47 pm

    This was an interesting read! I don’t drink, but I’ll keep this in mind if someone I know needs help with this.. thanks!
