The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new drug that claims to lessen or eliminate the symptoms of a hangover in 15 to 30 minutes.

The new drug contains caffeine, aspirin and a stomach soothing substance.

But Dr. David Samadi, appearing Monday on Fox News, was skeptical of the new hangover cure. He noted that it did not address some of the main causes of a hangover, such as dehydration and the loss of electrolytes.

“If you’re drinking [alcohol], make sure you drink a lot of water when you go out,” he explained. “You want to basically load up on your water and make sure you are well hydrated before you go.”

“I think it is already too late if you wake up the next morning and try to catch up.”
