FDA Over-the-Counter Approved Hangover Relief Medicine to Arrive in Stores on Independence Day

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - The only FDA over-the-counter (OTC) hangover relief medicine is now available to retailers and consumers in the U.S., and will arrive in stores for the July 4th holiday with a special tribute pack for our troops.

DINOCO International Corporation has recently been granted FDA OTC approval to begin marketing and selling its patent pending JACK'S™ (www.getyourjack.com) brand of hangover relief medicines to mass retailers and consumers.

JACK'S™ Hangover Relief Formula No. 49 medicine consists of caffeine, acetaminophen and calcium carbonate caplets, which relieve symptoms of headache, fatigue, muscular aches, heartburn, sour stomach, upset stomach, pre-menstrual cramps, menstrual cramps and generalized aches and pains associated with a hangover. JACK'S™ Hangover Relief DECAF Formula No. 67 medicine consists of acetaminophen and calcium carbonate caplets, which relieve symptoms of headache, muscular aches, heartburn, sour stomach, upset stomach, menstrual cramps and generalized aches and pains associated with a hangover.

Statistics show that 34% of Americans who consume alcohol are binge drinkers and 52% of college students are binge drinkers. In addition, absenteeism and poor job performance resulting from hangovers cost the nation $148 billion annually, according to the Annals of Internal Medicine.

JACK'S™ customizes its packaging to accommodate consumers suffering from symptoms of a hangover, based on their personal interests and the geographic location of retailers. For example, JACK'S™ High Rollers Hangover Relief is designed as a playing card, positioned for sales in hotel casino mini-bars for guests who have over-indulged in late night activities. JACK'S™ Hangover Relief benefits hotel guests because they do not have to leave their hotel room to begin their hangover recovery process. Hotel casinos benefit by providing a solution for their guests to feel better quickly and safely, getting them back to the casino floor or resort entertainment revenue centers sooner, where it will increase their bottom line.

Another example is JACK'S™ Election Hangover Relief, which consists of "retro-style" Democratic and Republican versions, which will become popular during convention rallies and political fundraisers. They will become a collector's item for consumers of each respective party.

Additionally, JACK'S™ Hangover Relief has specialized themed packs for racing fans, truck drivers, wine enthusiasts, tailgaters, rock n' rollers, travelers, Democrats and Republicans. JACK'S™ customizes packaging for any organization or special event and offers private label packaging for store brands.
