I have been searching for this product my entire life. Ok, maybe not my entire life but certainly since the day I graduated from college, which somehow also became the day my hangovers went from bad to just plain ugly. What is it about becoming any actual adult that means after two glasses of wine on a Wednesday you are absolutely guaranteed a headache the next day? And a reunion weekend with your college friends? Forget it.
At the risk of sounding like a complete lush, I am here to tell you about my new favorite thing: the “hangover prevention patch,”Bytox.
How does it work? Stick this badboy on your skin 45 minutes before you start drinking and keep it on 8 hours after you stop. Simple.
I was skeptical too, but I thought it was worth a shot and I really gave it a good test. I won’t tell you exactly how much I drank, but let’s just say it was a marathon, not a sprint, and involved tequila and wine. I woke up the next day without a headache and my stomach felt fine. I felt oddly guilty – surely after all I drank I was supposed to have a hangover? But no, I actually felt great. And my friend, who went drink for drink with me, let’s just say she was not feeling great.
If you’re really interested in what it’s made of: Bytox is a specially-formulated hangover prevention patch which effectively replenishes the vital levels of vitamins and nutrients your body loses when you consume alcohol (which would explain why I smelled like a multivitamin all night – a small price to pay). The innovative combination of B vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients help keep your body hydrated, which means you can enjoy a hangover-free morning. Basically your body will quickly replenish what’s lost during the consumption of alcohol.
Plus, unlike the alcohol consumed, the patch has zero calories. Like I said: New. Favorite. Thing.
If there is one thing I will never give up, it’s alcohol. I don’t smoke, I exercise, I eat healthily and I try to get as much sleep as I can. Alcohol is the one thing that isn’t good for me that I enjoy very much. That said, I think the reason why I enjoy it so much is that my body processes it very well. I don’t turn red and I don’t get headaches.
But what I do sometimes experience is a sluggishness. The kind that makes you want to stay in bed the whole day. The kind that leaves you horribly unsure of what you want – are you hungry? are you thirsty? That’s not a fun feeling and by all means, it’s terribly unproductive. So when I was introduced to this patch from Bytox touting to actually help prevent a hangover, I was both intrigued and skeptical.
This patch contains a big dose of Vitamin B complex vitamins in addition to many other nutrients. Essentially, it helps replenishes what is lost in the process of alcohol consumption.
I thus decided to put this to the test. All you need to do is stick this on a hairless part of your body – your back, your shoulders etc before you start drinking and go about your night. I mixed my drinks and I bar and club hopped on several of my review nights. Doing shots and getting doubles and just pushing it to see how well this patch would work.
And personally, it works. I am more aware of things the next day and I feel more awake. I don’t experience much sluggishness and if I do, it doesn’t last long. The thing is, one is supposed to keep the patch on for 8 hours after your last drink which essentially means going to bed with it. It’s not so much of an issue but I find that the patch does leave a sticky film that takes a bit of effort to wash off.
Of course, with or without the patch, I always try to make sure I drink as much water as I can when I get home and during my night out. Sleeping enough also helps too. This isn’t a miracle patch. It doesn’t affect the high you get from alcohol and neither will it stop one from acting out under the influence of alcohol. It just makes the next day easier. Which makes this a great thing to bring with you on work trips when you have to entertain and drink and still be expected to perform the next day.
“US men no longer have to hunt around a supermarket for their must-have items thanks to one store which has grouped all the essentials in one aisle.” is how most headlines read when a store chain in New York created a unique aisle with products specially catered to Men. Of course no Man Aisle couls exist with out Beer, Potatoe Chips and Bytox, The Hangover Prevention Patch.

AIN’T NO FUN IF THE HOMIES FEEL LIKE THEY DIED THE NEXT DAY
We’ve heard it all before: Just have another drink! Take two Tylenol! Bite into a piece of ginger with a side of coffee while taking a nice hot bath. The truth is: the best way to ease your hangover is to stop it before it starts. Barring the painfully obvious solution of simply knowing your limits, there are some preventative measures you can take to alleviate the symptoms of a hangover.
-Drink as much water as possible. Alcohol is a diuretic, so all of those rushed trips to the bathroom weren’t just about debriefing your friends or escaping your date but more so about dehydrating your system. Stagnate your drinks with glasses of water and it’ll reduce the pain of that all too familiar headache in the morning.
-Sustenance! Food provides a cushion in your intestines that slows down the effects of alcohol.
Editor’s Note: We recently received some samples of the Bytox anti-hangover patches and wanted to give the a proper try-out. Now being that I’m currently “trading-paint” with forty years of age, I decided to let our new A History of Drinking college intern, Ashleigh give them the torture test. Here’s her account below:
I recently used one on my 22nd birthday and since my 21st birthday was awful I knew I had to do this one up good. I unfortunately had a final the next day so I was putting all my hope in this patch in order to wake up and be able to function the next day.
From what I can remember I had a margarita, 4 beers, 3 shots, and 2 mixed drinks throughout the course of the night. This night was the first night in a while that I actually blacked out a little bit, but, somehow managed to set my alarm and wake up in the morning, which was a miracle.
I went ahead and left the patch on for the majority of the next day and did not feel like I was going to be sick at all and surprisingly, I did not even have a headache. I would recommend these patches if you want to go “balls to the wall” and get wasted or if you just want to wake up the next morning not feeling like hell on earth and need to be a functioning adult! The patches work wonderfully.
Editor’s note (again): We here at AHod advise all of our drinkers to drink responsibly…
On December 22, 2011 DigBoston.com posted the following story.
Hangover cures: myth or reality?
Experience has taught us that there is no cure for a lack of self control. When you have a Fernet-drinking contest with yourself or polish off a bowl of something labeled “Blackout Punch,” that way danger lies.
Thus, we were skeptical of the publicist’s pitch that promised us a “special hangover remedy carefully marketed it in an easy-to-use, safe patch.” What was the secret, snake oil and unicorn tears? Or some blend chemicals that would cause cancer sometime down the road? And really, do these people understand how much we drink?
Cursory investigation revealed this cure, Bytox, to be nothing more than a time-release patch designed to replenish the vitamins and nutrients the body loses when consuming mass quantities of alcohol. That we had to try, if for no other reason than to pass the good word of this magic patch on to you should it work. Our civic duty.
We enlisted a dozen drinkers on two separate occasions to test this wonder. In the name of research they mixing blackout punch with champagne with beer with fernet and with wine. Very few made it through the night without some grey, hazy patches.
And the patch totally worked.
Several drinkers polled still felt rough the next day, probably because like most drunk people, they failed to follow the instructions. But if the physical symptoms of the hangover weren’t totally absent, in each case they were reduced. The metaphysical symptoms—the post drunk shame spiral that prompts a barrage of texts apologizing for blacking out and not paying the tab only to realise that you actually picked up the tab for the entire bar—well, that’s another story.
In short, Bytox is a not-scary, vitamin-based hangover cure that works. But if you misplace your dignity and self respect while imbibing, well there’s no magic patch for that. Sip on one of these before setting out to find them.
At Bytox, we appreciate a fun night out – but sometimes we don’t appreciate the impact it can have on our bank accounts. But if you think that those $16 martinis are bad enough, take a look at what we found on the most expensive alcoholic beverages in the world!
First up is the king of all expensive alcoholic beverages – the Henri IV Dudognon Heritage, a bottle of some of the world’s finest and most expensive champagne. From France’s prestigious Cognac Grande Champagne region, which is unparalleled by any other region for producing amazing champagne, this champagne has been aged for over 100 years.
One would think that having 100-year-old champagne would be luxurious enough, but apparently the manufacturers were not satisfied – this champagne is kept in a 24 karat gold and platinum silver decanter, which is decorated with exquisitely cut diamonds. What should you expect to shell out if you wanted to buy yourself a bottle of this champagne? Try a whopping $1.9 million. At this price, you can expect that only the mega-wealthy will be sampling Henri IV Dudognon Heritage.
Do your tastes tend to favor alcoholic beverages that are produced more south of the border? Then try Tequila Ley .925, which is easily the world’s most expensive tequila. The Tequila Ley .925, which is valued at over $1.3 million, is so expensive due to the jaw-dropping bottle that it’s kept in – try a flask made entirely of 6,000 cut diamonds.
Of course, no list of alcoholic beverages would be complete without vodka – and there’s definitely lots of competition for the most expensive vodka available. However, nothing stands out like DIVA Premium Vodka, which is distilled using the kinds of precious gems usually reserved for fine jewelry. Each bottle of DIVA Premium Vodka is decorated with a different type of precious stone – so a bottle could set you back anywhere from $4000 to $1 million, depending on your preference. With a price tag equivalent to the purchase price of a mansion in some parts of the world, its no wonder that this company caters strictly to the fabulously wealthy.
After conducting this research, we’ve definitely decided that not only is alcohol one of the most expensive habits out there, but how much you spend on it is all about perspective.
But no matter how much you spend on your drinks, make sure you put on your Bytox patch before you go out – nothing would be worse than regretting those expensive drinks you just purchased!
Whether you consider yourself a Belieber or can’t stand the sight of the Canadian pop superstar, there’s no denying that Justin Bieber tends to be a constant fixture on the entertainment news circuit. Usually he makes the news due to his wholesome image, his pop songs or cavorting with his girlfriend, Disney star Selena Gomez. However, in a shocking turn of events, the Bieber has made headlines due to alleged drunken incidents.
Mariah Yeater, 20, has filed a lawsuit against Justin Bieber – and her reason behind the suit can be summed up in the form of her 3-month-old son. In her lawsuit papers, Yeater claims that Bieber is the father of her son, and is demanding his DNA to determine paternity of her child. Naturally, Bieber has denied these allegations, and is even filing a countersuit against Yeater for defamation of character.
Yeater claims that Bieber’s bodyguards invited her backstage to meet the pop star at a concert. When she got back there, Bieber allegedly told her she was pretty, and started to ply her with drinks. Soon, the two were drunk, and they engaged in sexual intercourse.
Bieber fans are already up in arms about the claims, and have taken to Twitter to defend their celebrity crush. Yeater’s family has also reported that death threats have been made against the mother.
We’ll be interested to see the outcome of this whole trial. Although we’re certain that Bieber didn’t knock up Yeater, we can still make the following recommendations: don’t invite crazy fans backstage. Ever. And especially don’t do it when you’re drunk!

Here at Bytox, we pride ourselves on helping our clients enjoy nights out without suffering from hangover consequences in the morning. That’s why whenever we encounter hangover news, we can’t help but wonder if the consequences would be a bit different if a Bytox patch was involved – like this story straight out of Utah.
A movie theater in Salt Lake City was recently fined $1,600 for showing “Hangover 2” – despite the fact that they have a liquor license.
According to local sources, the movie theater was fined due to a strange state law which insists that any establishments that display nudity are not allowed to serve alcohol. Therefore, the movie theater, which only admits 21-year-olds to the establishment, was fined because “Hangover 2” features full-front female and male nudity, and even a few appearances from a transvestite.
The law was originally designed to help keep strip clubs in check, although because the movie theater has a liquor license, they came under fire from the state liquor board in late September. Patrons and owners of the movie theater are up in arms about the fine and planning to appeal to the board.
At Bytox, we find it a bit strange that the state liquor board would focus its energy on fining a movie theater, rather than focusing on strip clubs, where the law would undoubtedly have more of an effective. But regardless, the “Hangover 2” is harmless fun – we think the state liquor board should slap on a Bytox patch, have a few beers and enjoy themselves!
