over-refreshed


over-refreshed
   drunk
   Not much different from refreshed. Oversedated still means, and over-excited used to mean, the same thing:
    ... post-prandial euphoria that Harry Woods euphemistically termed 'overrefreshed'. (Deighton, 1978)
    Only... the recognition that she was a tad over-sedated prevented her from falling down, (le Carré, 1996)
    I am very much afraid he is over-excited with wine. (W. Collins, 1860)
