“If you ever reach total enlightenment while drinking beer, I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.”
 --  Jack Handy,
Deep Thoughts

Taking vitamins or pain relievers.

While you may not feel any benefits directly from taking vitamin supplements, they can’t hurt. Many experts recommend taking a B-Complex vitamin and a vitamin C before and after you drink alcohol. A deficiency in Thiamine (vitamin B1) makes it harder for your body to break down alcohol. Interestingly, beer contains a good amount of Thiamine. 
Anti-aspirin graphicAspirin:
Taking aspirin while you drink, or before you pass out, can be very dangerous. The alcohol already irritates your stomach, and the aspirin may irritate it further by increasing your stomach acid.

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that taking aspirin before consuming alcohol increases blood alcohol levels by 26%, and that the alcohol actually remains in the body longer because your metabolism is slowed.

Tylenol (Acetaminophen), like aspirin, can be very dangerous when mixed with alcohol. The liver can be damaged, because as it metabolizes the acetaminophen, toxins can be released. Today, Tylenol packaging carries a warning of the potential danger associated with combining Tylenol and excessive alcohol consumption.

Ibuprofen is also metabolized in the liver and may increase your risk of liver damage when combined with large amounts of alcohol.

While it is dangerous to mix pain relievers with alcohol, you may safely take a pain reliever the next day to relieve some of the hangover symptoms.
