First, make sure the painkiller isn’t acetaminophen. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is metabolized by the liver and the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen can cause your liver to release a toxic metabolite. Alcohol mixed with acetaminophen is very dangerous and can do serious damage to your liver. Tylenol was recently forced to include warnings on its packaging telling its users not to mix it with alcohol. Ibuprofen and naproxen sodium are better, but can cause stomach bleeding and lead to kidney damage if used long term (longer than two weeks). Aspirin, taken with milk and food, is another option but it can also cause stomach bleeding when used long term in combination with alcohol. A simple rule: Never take aspirin before you.
As we said above alcohol causes dehydration that why some people think that if they drink a lot of water in the end of the night, the problem will be solved. Too much water can lead to hyponatremia called also “water intoxication,” which dilutes the sodium in the body and can be fatal. Remember, the standard guideline of 12 eight-ounce glasses a day should be adequate for rehydration. Some scientists claim that fruit juice is more suitable for solving the problem because it contains fructose. The fructose speeds up the rate at which the body rid itself of toxins.
