No: Hangovers are not completely understood, but are in part related to leftover toxic effects of alcohol binges, as well as to individual differences in the kind of toxic metabolites (particularly acetaldehyde) that people produce when intoxicated. The headache, nausea, fatigue etc. May be severe, but will resolve. Good hydration and symptomatic treatment do work. Drink less in the future.
