How to Get Rid of a Champagne Headache (Backed by Science)

Elizabeth Miller

Champagne is a part of many special occasions, from weddings to New Year's Eve celebrations. Although it can be enjoyable to drink, it can also cause headaches after the fact. Headaches after drinking champagne may be caused by dehydration, mineral depletion or even an allergy to the sulfites in champagne. According to the substance abuse website, the bubbles in champagne cause it to have a greater effect. Champagne headaches can go away quickly when properly treated.

Step 1

Drink more water. Alcohol is very dehydrating because it removes water from your cells, says For best results, alternate a glass of water with each glass of champagne. If this is not possible, at least drink a full glass of water before going to bed. This may prevent or reduce headaches caused by dehydration.

Step 2

Drink a few cups of coffee. The caffeine in coffee causes your blood vessels to constrict, which can relieve the discomfort of a headache.

Step 3

Eat a light meal to absorb the alcohol, and if possible, do not drink champagne on an empty stomach. Choose foods containing complex carbohydrates and protein, but avoid greasy foods that may make you feel queasy.

Step 4

Take B vitamins. Alcohol depletes your body's store of B vitamins, which can make headaches worse and make you feel generally unwell. Swallow vitamins with plenty of water, and take with food to avoid nausea.
