According to the drug's creator Brenna Haysom, Blowfish is a combination of aspirin, caffeine and an antacid that creates a lemon flavored drink which provides a combined effect of two extra-strength aspirins, three espressos and a full cooked breakfast. Haysom added that Blowfish was the only over-the-counter drug approved by the FDA for curing hangover.

However experts are not fully convinced about the drug's ability to cure hangover. Stating that Blowfish was just a new drug claiming to fight hangovers, Richard Blondell, vice-chair for Addiction Medicine at the American Academy of Family Physicians, said, "Every year there is a new product out that claims to be the cure against hangovers. Blowfish is simply this year's thing."
