Awesome suggestions!

Surprisingly, no hangover... went the moderation route.

I'm half Mexican, and menudo was always the hangover food. Never understood how tripe could be a good thing with a headache and upset stomach.

I did the moderation thing, too. 2 glasses of champagne around midnight and then called it a night. Woke up this morning feeling great. Happy 2013!

Since the main cause of headache is dehydration, which causes the brain to swell, the best treatment is an electrolyte drink like GatorAde.

Since the main cause of nausea is upset stomach, treat that with antacids, and bland, neutral food like toast or cereal.

Drinking more alcohol does not lessen the hangover, it actually prolongs it. You just don't care as much.

A hangover is actually alcohol withdrawal.
That's why if you have a few sips of it, the hangover goes away.

This popular explanation is not true, according to medical experts, like the Mayo Clinic, which list specific physical responses to drinking too much alcohol:

Dehydration often characterized by thirst, dizziness and lightheadedness.

Inflammatory response from the immune system

Irritation of the lining of the stomach - nausea

Lowered blood sugar - which may cause fatigue, weakness, shakiness and mood disturbances

Blood vessels expand, which can lead to headaches.

Etc.

Drink a glass of water in between alcoholic drinks as a preventative measure. Failing that, ginger ale helps with a bad stomach the next morning.

I have a friend, a drinker with a running problem, who swears by going for a run to cure a hangover. He says the first 15 minutes feel worse than anything, but after that you get your metabolism going and feel fine, rather than laying around feeling miserable on the couch all day.

I read somewhere that eggs have an enzyme that helps the body recover from a hangover.

I have friends in Japan who swear by Takoyaki, otherwise known as Octopus Balls. It's a very popular street food to eat after a heavy night of drinking.

Well, Mountain Dew helps, But if you can force yourself to have a good workout when u wake up, (even hungover), a 30 minute stationary bike or jog, weights, etc. and work up a good sweat, you will kill the hangover.
