Question

Joshua S. Spell, via facebook asked:

If I wake up with a raging hangover-induced headache, is aspirin a miracle cure, or will it make things worse? I've heard it both ways. Thanks!

Answer

We posed this question to Professor Peter Rothwell from the University of Oxford...

Peter - Aspirin versus paracetamol for hangovers is very difficult.  Its an individual thing really.
