Taking more alcohol when you already have hangover will give you more headache and migraine.

Hangovers Cure   

The number 1 treatment recommended for hangovers is water. Alcohol is a diuretic agent and this is why you visit the toilet to urinate after taking beer. The more you drink, the more you visit the toilet. It being a substance that can cause dehydration makes water essential to cure hangovers.  At every glass of beer you take, take a glass of water with it. Taking water will help in replacing water lost to beer intake. The hangover may be as a result of the water lost.

Sport drinks
Sport drinks will help you replace some of the electrolytes lost to urination. Although, you might not necessarily have to replace them, this is because the body can take care of some of them.

Taking coffee can help in changing your mood. It helps you to get alert and enhance you to work. Caffeine present in coffee can also help in treating migraine and headache associated with hangovers. After taking your coffee, ensure you take water as well because coffee can also cause dehydration. 

Actually, eating food after hangover may not really help. Food before alcohol will help to the absorption of alcohol.  It takes time for alcohol to enter your blood stream.  Ensure you eat before take beer. Do not rush your beer; it is advisable to take it slowly. Take some vitamins if you have.

Pain killers
You can use over the counter (OTC) pain killers like paracetamol to ease the headache and migraine. 

Involve yourself in some exercise to ease hangover on time.  Although exercise and hangover sounds odd, but giving it a trial will convince you.  Exercise can also dehydrate the body, so ensure you have some bottles of water with you. Some people say having sex helps to cure hangover since it is a form of exercise and it helps to ease stress. 

Have a good rest. Try as much as possible to sleep.


Above all, it is advisable to drink responsibly. Do not drink more than your ability. Take a bottle of water along with your beer. All these cure above are meant for times you may forget yourself and you take more than your ability. Try to drink moderately
