Over 75% of people who had taken alcohol have experienced a hangover and missed work due to its effect. Hangovers vary from person to person but usually involve a headache, nausea, tiredness and dehydration. Dehydration is one of the main causes of your hangover symptoms. Given how prevalent hangovers are, certain “morning after” medications have now been manufactured and are claiming to treat the signs and symptoms of hangovers. This Blowfish for Hangover review, we will discuss if this product is indeed effective in treating your morning illness caused by a hangover.
The main cause of a hangover is ethanol, the alcohol in your drinks. It’s a toxic chemical that works in the body as a diuretic, which means it makes you pee more and can become dehydrated as a result.
A hangover is a collection of symptoms that emerge when alcohol's intoxicating effects start to wear off. Research on hangover treatments is scarce, but alcohol is thought to trigger an inflammatory response – a process blocked by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin.
The inflammatory response is similar to the body's defense against the flu, and is linked to lethargy – an energy lull boosted by caffeine. Finally, the chemicals produced by the body to break alcohol down are hard on the stomach – collateral damage tempered by an antacid.
What is Blowfish for hangovers?
Blowfish is a new remedy that is an FDA regulated drug specifically designed to treat the major symptoms of a hangover, with effervescent tablets that are dissolved in water and taken the morning after a big night out. Blowfish addresses multiple hangover symptoms at once – a headache, upset stomach, and fatigue.
The effervescent delivery system helps rehydrate and works fast because the ingredients are already dissolved. Aspirin treats headache symptoms, caffeine gives you a boost to get up and get moving, and a neutralizing agent helps settle stomachs.
Each dose of Blowfish contains 1000 mg of aspirin (a maximum-strength dose) and 120 mg of caffeine (about as much as a cup of coffee). This combination is recognized by the FDA as an over-the-counter drug that is safe and effective for treating the symptoms associated with a hangover.
The following benefits of Blowfish for Hangover.
- Fast onset of action
- It has a flavored formulation
- Better than aspirin and coffee
- Relieves pain
- Improves alertness
The FDA has approved it and it is currently recognized for treating hangovers. Blowfish tablets were permitted by the U.S FDA as a drug that can be sold as an over-the-counter drug.
Ingredients of Blowfish for Hangover?
Forget aspirin and Advil for post-party malaise, blowfish has become our go-to remedy for hangovers. We've been known to hunt Duane Reade stores and buy out everything they have when we can find it. Why, oh why is blowfish so hard to find?! We've taken to ordering online in bulk so we always have some on hand, and bring them to special occasions as gifts for the host or birthday boy or girl.
I'm skeptical about any cure-all, especially for hangovers; however, I must say this product is the closest thing you will find to an end all for hangovers. While it isn't a miracle drug, (because that doesn't exist.), it is the best possible solution to having a hangover! Two tablets and feeling back to good within an hour! Definitely, recommend!
We all indulge a little too much at times. Blowfish has been a game changer for our next mornings. We take it everywhere; there is some in the kitchen medicine cabinet, in the bedroom bathroom and in both our travel bags. Won't ever go without it again and recommend it to all our friends. Such a hidden gem!
At first didn't want to believe the hype, until I finally tried Blowfish. Couldn't ask for anything better, it's no bull it worked as advertised. Felt like a champ and was up and going many hours sooner than I normally would. I have recommended this to friends and family, just wish I would've known about it sooner. Thanks, Blowfish, you are awesome.
I had reservations about a “hangover cure”, but this stuff really works! I actually didn't get a chance to try it as a hangover remedy because I was sick for a week when it arrived. I tried it in the morning as it has the ingredients I felt would help in the morning if you’re sick, and it definitely helped. I've recommended this to all my friends.

Blowfish helps you get over with hangover fast with effervescent tablets. Blowfish, like every other hangover cure product on the market, claims that they have come up with a solution to try after waking up with a great hangover.
Blowfish is a combination of medicine that’s specifically designed to treat hangovers. Pain reliever to feel great, caffeine for energy, and its lemony, effervescence means it works fast, doesn’t taste like medicine and delivers the hydration you need.
Pharmaceutical caffeine – this is a central nervous stimulant. It is used to restore mental alertness. It is indicated for fatigue and drowsiness that comes with alcohol sedation.
Mannitol and acesulfame potassium– mannitol is a sugar alcohol in the same category of xylitol and sorbitol. These excipients are used in pharmaceutical flavoring. Acesulfame potassium is also an artificial sweetener.
Sodium hydrogen carbonate – this facilitates the effervescence that Blowfish exhibits. Blowfish is fizzy when added to water and this characteristic is accounted for by the reaction between this compound and the anhydrous citric acid.
Povidone – a tablet binder and disintegrant.
Aspirin – has anti-inflammatory effects and is also indicated for any type of headache and inflammation along the gastrointestinal tract. It is also a pain reliever of minor aches and pains associated with a hangover. It also provides relief from migraines, headaches and any pain on the body.
Blowfish for Hangover’s common side effects may include:
- upset stomach, heartburn
- Mild headache
More side-effects are mentioned in the “Cons” section.
Note that such side effects occur rarely and even as toxicity signs such as consuming more than 8 tablets in a 24 hour period. Intolerance to caffeine and aspirin in those who have such intolerance is the main cause of all these side effects.
This product contains caffeine. Consult your doctor before taking this product if you are under medication of stimulants, antidepressants, aspirin, and heart medications.
Upon waking, fully dissolve 2 tablets in 16 oz. of water and drink. Do not exceed recommended dosage.
