MDMA

MDMA capsules and MDMA powder have become increasingly popular over the last five years, in part because of the positive effects that a person may experience within an hour or so after taking a single dose. Those effects include feelings of mental stimulation, emotional warmth, empathy toward others, a general sense of well being, and decreased anxiety. But, this doesn’t last.

The following MDMA after effects can be present one week or longer after taking the drug. It is a long list and one that certainly counteracts the feel good perception of this drug.

  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • Impulsiveness
  • Aggression
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Lack of appetite
  • Reduced interest in and pleasure from sex
  • Significant reductions in mental abilities

MDMA users can also be present with the following symptoms that affect their physical health:

  • Nausea
  • Chills
  • Sweating
  • Muscle cramping
  • Blurred vision
  • Marked rise in body temperature (hyperthermia)
  • Dehydration
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Arrhythmia

And then there is certainly the risk of MDMA overdose which can be categorised with:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Faintness
  • Panic attacks
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
