Doctor-staffed hangover clinic opens in Australia

Australia’s first hangover clinic has opened its doors, just in time to cater for the festive season.

Merrymakers who have overindulged are being offered IV fluids, vitamins B and C, analgesics and anti-emetics for $140, with add-ons including oxygen treatment and an "anti-oxidant boost".

The remedies are administered by registered doctors — mostly medical residents who are looking for “extra practice”, with around 10 already signed up to work at the Sydney clinic.
