Default Is tequila an upper?

My sister said that the reason tequila messes you up so much is because it's an upper, unlike other alcohol which is downers.

Is this true? I think that tequilla is made from some special root or plant or something that might make it different but I would really like to know.

blue agave, perhaps?

if it's an upper, it isn't because the plants used to make the alcohol are different.

alcohol is a downer! It's just that tequila dehedrates you more hence the worse hangover. Much like the bubbly!

tequila is an alcohol - a depressant. it is made from the blue agave (maguey), which is a cactus-like plant called a succulent. I don't think it gives any worse hangovers than any other type of alcohol; that's just a myth. I've had worse hangovers from vodka and rum than i've ever had from tequila and i've drank lots of tequila; it's the only alcohol besides beer that it drink now.
