Is there a possibility in science where they'll be able to make something that will counteract or defeat drunkenness in such a way that if you get drunk you can drink something to make it go away real quick? Like curing a fever or a cough? Do you think it will be possible, if not now, but in the future, for something(maybe a drug) to alter the human body and remove the cause of drunkenness? So you can theoretically drink all you want, afterwards you'll drink something and then the drunkenness will go away?

  • Hello there, would there be a proper StackExchange for this question? I thought this would be the site for questions like this but it seems I have to put in a source where I am skeptical of the claim(that science can cure drunkenness or intoxication), but the thought of it came from my mind alone. I tried looking at Google to see if there's a related article but I couldn't find one. – NotDrunk Sep 10 '14 at 8:51
  • The closest articles I could find were about questions if coffee can help make you sober: Can drinking coffee help a person sober up? and Does Coffee Sober Up a Drunk?, I don't know if these are considered notable though. – NotDrunk Sep 10 '14 at 8:52

    One last comment, I'm aiming specifically for inducing sobriety and eliminating drunkenness from a person instead of a cure for the hangover. – NotDrunk Sep 10 '14 at 8:55
  • Concrete claims that a quick googling uncovers: Iomazenil and Dihydromyricetin. – Anton Sep 10 '14 at 18:40
