Awesome when taken as directed!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PreToxx for Hangovers & Liver Support (60 Vegetarian Capsules with Prickly Pear, Milk Thistle, Cysteine, and Electrolyte Blend) (Health and Beauty)
I've tried this on 3 occasions now and the results from my experiments are as follows:
- Light drinking: took 2 tablets before and drank 4 beers. Felt great in the morning, but that wasn't much of a test
- Moderate drinking (mixed booze): took 4 tablets and drank 4 beers, 2 bourbons, 2 gin. Didn't drink any water with the alcohol and had a mild tinge of a headache that I normally attribute to being completely dehydrated. What I would have expected without the pretoxx is body aches until at least midday, moderate headache and a general feeling of slowness and laziness. Didn't experience any of it (except for the headache), very happy not to have body ache.
- Heavy drinking (mixed booze): took 4 tablets and had 2 beers, 4 bourbons, 4 gin and some champagne. What I would have expected without the pretoxx is severe body aches all day, severe headache and what I call Post Inebriated Anxiety (feelings of regret and general awfulness), and pretty much not leaving bed. I didn't get any body aches at all and more importantly had no PIA!
Best thing for me is to not get the anxiety I get if I drink heavily, bottle paid for itself in that one session. I do think not drinking any water at all is a mistake, maybe just a glass or two throughout the night would avert any ill feelings at all.
Big thumbs up!

I found your review to be very helpful but it had me wondering, if you found the product to be so helpful, don't you think it warrants 5 stars? Or was there something that made you not actually love the product, lets say because of the price?

Well I didn't give it a 5 because it's not a 'magic bullet' for hangovers. It definitely works and really helped hangover symptoms, but I didn't feel comfortable giving out 5 stars for a product whose touted benefits are pretty subjective and situational.

I'm glad somebody identified this. "Post Inebriated Anxiety (feelings of regret and general awfulness),"
I will try this product based on your review. I've also found that Vitamin B helps with PIA too.
