 FDA Approves Hangover Pill 'Blowfish'

A new hangover pill called 'Blowfish' that claims to cure hangover within 15 minutes has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It contains 500mg aspirin, 60mg caffeine and an antacid to soothe stomach upset.

To relieve the symptoms, those suffering from a hangover have to take two of these water soluble tablets. This helps restore mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness associated with a hangover.


This magic combination has been discovered by Brenna Haysom. Currently the pill is available online. It costs $2.99 a dose (or $11.99 for a six-pack). If this pill proves to be successful in US, it will be launched in UK in 2012.
