The pill, which is already available online, contains 500 milligrams of aspirin, 60 milligrams of caffeine and an antacid to soothe upset stomachs.
Surprisingly, the groundbreaking formula is not the work of scientists but was discovered by former financier Brenna Haysom, who stumbled across the recipe after trying hundreds of hangover cures.
"I started on a quest to find something that really worked and could be taken the morning after drinking," the Daily Mail quoted Haysom as saying.
"After some research, I found a combination that did the trick, fast. I started sharing it with my friends, and they kept asking for more," he stated.
The pill has been granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), deeming it safe for market.
Those suffering from a hangover are required to take two of the effervescent tablets, which claim to help ‘restore mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness associated with a hangover’.
It has just hit the markets across the U.S. and if successful will be introduced to the UK next year, costing customers 1.90 pounds for a single dose or 7.60 pounds for a six-pack.
