Ecstasy is chemically
similar to 'Methamphetamine' & the
hallucinogen 'Mescaline'. It produces increase energy, euphoria, emotional
distortions in time, and tactile
experiences. Its primary target is 'Serotonin'; largely responsible for
mood & emotions, aggression, sexual activity, and sensitivity to pain. By flooding the brain
with serotonin, ecstasy heightens emotional sensitivity which can result in
overly demonstrative feelings of empathy, love & sexual desire.
Unfortunately, it can produce confusion, depression, sleep disturbances and severe anxiety.....sometimes soon after taking the drug or even days or weeks afterward.
Ecstasy also effects, though not as directly, those neurons containing
'Norepinephrine' & 'Dopamine'. As with most illicit drugs,
MDMA can be 'cut' with a variety of substances; generally
unbeknownst to the partaker. Many believe the colour of, &/or logo on the tablet indicates the
constituents, however, as extraordinary as it seems, there are unscrupulous
dealers & suppliers who 'misrepresent' their product! Ecstasy has
been known to have had 'pseudoephedrine','caffiene','heroin',
'mescaline' and 'over the counter medicines' added in its manufacture. A point to
remember! Ecstasy is not monitored by any 'consumer
