We know. Everyone says there’s no cure for a hangover other than time. And everyone has their own ideas about what to do if you have a hangover and there’s no time to sleep it off.
Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. Vitamins. Sports drinks. Kudzu root and prickly pear extract. Pickle juice…
Blowfish is different.
We’ve used real medicine to develop a hangover remedy that addresses the major symptoms associated with hangovers in one easy step. Blowfish contains a combination of caffeine and a maximum strength pain reliever to treat your headache and wake you up. Effervescent tablets are gentle on your stomach and have been shown to deliver medicine twice as fast as regular tablets.
Again, we know - it sounds too good to be true. This is where we erase all doubts as to whether Blowfish is better than whatever you’re using now:
A hangover is just dehydration, so if I just drink water before bed I’ll be fine.
We wish it were that easy. Dehydration can be part of it, but the main issue is the way the body reacts to the toxic compounds that are formed when ethanol is broken down. To learn more about hangovers than you ever want to know, click here.
I always go for the “hair of the dog” and feel awesome.
Hangovers occur when your blood alcohol returns to zero, so drinking more alcohol may make you feel better in the short term. But it’s obviously just postponing your hangover until the alcohol wears off – and then it’ll be even worse. Plus, for most of us, nursing bloody Marys all day isn’t a viable life strategy.
Isn’t Blowfish just like taking a regular painkiller and a cup of coffee?
No. And here’s why:
- Solid pills take a long time to dissolve in the stomach before they can be absorbed. Because the medicine in Blowfish is already dissolved by the time it reaches your stomach, it can be more readily absorbed. Effervescent aspirin has been shown to reach your bloodstream twice as fast as regular pills. And when you’re hungover, every minute counts.
- Plain aspirin interferes with enzymes that protect the stomach lining from gastric acid. The ingredients that make Blowfish fizz create an alkaline buffer that’s gentle on your stomach, which has already taken a beating from alcohol.
- Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol (or Excedrin), has been linked to severe cases of liver toxicity when taken soon after alcohol consumption. You should avoid anything with acetaminophen when you are hungover.
- When you’re hungover, your stomach is extra acidic, because alcohol causes overproduction of gastric acid. So does coffee (even decaf). Pharmaceutical caffeine is much easier on the stomach than coffee.
What’s the deal with the FDA?
Blowfish is a registered over-the-counter drug, which means that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has evaluated the effectiveness and safety of the Blowfish formulation and regulates our claims, safety information, manufacturing standards.

Why should I trust you?
You don’t have to. We’ve been featured by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the BBC, the Today Show, 20/20, CNN, Nightline, Fox News, Playboy, Vanity Fair, Town & Country, and Fitness Magazine. Blowfish has come out as the top pick in every single hangover remedy test we’ve been a part of.
I’m still not convinced.
Give it a try.
If it doesn’t work better than whatever you’re currently using to combat hangovers, we’ll refund your purchase. So you literally have nothing to lose except miserable mornings.
