"Asian" Flush Syndrome without flushing (or "Asian" lineage)?

I went to a gastroenterologist recently who tentatively diagnosed me with Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency (which causes the so-called "asian" flush). I am caucasian with some Russian descent, and I do not get flushed when I drink. Are there any precedents for non-asian, non-flushing sufferers of this enzyme deficiency? Should I get a second opinion? [more inside]

Alcohol makes me depressed, when it didn't before. Aging, or Wellbutrin?

As I age, I've noticed a trend: The older I get, the less it takes for me to feel depressed after a night of drinking. Like, not just hungover, but in a generally terrible mood. In my college days, I would naturally feel hungover after drinking a bit too much at a party, whereas having a glass or two of wine wouldn't make me break a sweat. These days, if go overboard I am basically dead to the world for the next two, even three days; but what surprises me is that even having 1-3 drinks with friends turns me into a mess the next day. It seems that no matter how little I drink I wake up groggy, in low spirits, and don't really feel like doing anything - God forbid I have to work the next day. I am usually a pretty happy person, and it was never this bad even a decade ago. These days, if I get invited to have a drink with friends, I often times turn them down since I know that even one drink could might a mood swing that could last days. [more inside]

Is there such a thing as a melatonin hangover?

I am jet-lagged. But I've been on the right schedule for a couple of days in terms of sleeping. And then I took a 3mg melatonin tablet last night and slept for 18 hours. Now I feel crap. Does it seem more likely that the crappy feeling is jet-lag, melatonin-induced, due to oversleeping, or that I'm coming down with something? [more inside]

Hangover cure?

Wow, not one "cure" question under the "hangover" tag. Anyhow my wife has a bit of a hangover from wine last night and I'd like to help her out. What do you suggest for a remedy? Anything that you swear by? She's got mostly a splitting headache and a little nausea. I know water prevents it, but it's already happened.

Why can't I move my head quickly when hungover?

Why is it that when you are hungover, and change the orientation of your head quickly, for a while it feels as if it is still orientated the other way, and isn't very pleasant? Is it something to do with your balance being off, or what?
