Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you get oral rehydration solution from any pharmacy or gatorade ,this will help replete the electrolytes loss ,as alcohol(vodka) acts as a diuretic and leads to loss of electrolytes in urine.Get multivitamins containing thiamine(b1) and b12 as this will also help subside your symptoms.Try doing saline gargles which will help subside your symptoms due to sore throat.
If your symptoms still do not subside by tommorow then do see a physician who can do a physical exam,liver function tests as binge drinking(drinking too much vodka at once) may lead to liver pathology,which also may present with similar symptoms as yours.

Thanks

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
