TAMPA - Indulged a bit too much in the Christmas spirits? Just in time for the holidays, the FDA has approved Blowfish, a pill specifically made for hangover pain and fatigue.
The pill was designed by Brenna Haysom, a Manhattan-based Harvard Business School grad, after she did months of research to find the right combination of ingredients.
According to Digital Journal, Rally Labs LLC developed the Alka-Seltzer-like pill which is meant to be dissolved in water before taking. The remedy promises to knock out multiple hangover symptoms in just 15 to 30 minutes.
Blowfish's Web site says that each dose contains 1000 mg of aspirin (a maximum strength dose) and 120 mg of caffeine (about as much as a cup of coffee), and it's designed to be taken the morning after drinking. The site claims that Blowfish is better than other hangover remedies because it contains ingredients recognized by the FDA as effective.
Blowfish's Web site contains a complete list of warnings, a section on "Hangover Science," and even a tongue-in-cheek link for those who "Blowfish Too Often" -- it leads directly to the site for Alcoholics Anonymous.
