Hangover Pill, 'Blowfish', Receives Official FDA Approval
A hangover pill named ‘Blowfish’, available over the counter, has finally been officially approved by the FDA.
The new pill contains 1,000 milligrams of aspirin, 120 milligrams of caffeine and a stomach-soothing agent in the form of two dissolving tablets, The Washington Post reports.
Blowfish is taken like Alka Seltzer and is said to help ease hangover symptoms within a little as 15 to 30 minutes.
Brenna Haysom created Blowfish through the West Village-based Rally Labs LLC following her own trouble with hangovers.
She explained, “So many people see hangovers as a shameful or embarrassing thing. I think of them as just a fact of life.”
“The magic of the effervescent tablet is that it hits your system much faster than getting a cup of coffee, taking an antacid and taking some aspirin separately,” she said, reports Death and Taxes.
However, the wonder-working remedy doesn’t mean people are free to binge-drink recklessly the night before. Haysom warned, “I definitely don’t encourage people to get obliterated.”
“This is a really effective product for people who have a couple too many: A happy hour that goes a little long, or holiday parties are a perfect example… and they wake up feeling terrible. Thus [Blowfish] gets you functioning again quickly,” Haysom added, Death and Taxes reports.
