ECSTASY / MOLLY / MDMA
MDMA, also known as ecstasy and Molly, is a popular club drug known for its euphoric, stimulant effects. Commonly used at parties, raves, music festivals, clubs or bars and other social gatherings, MDMA produces a profound euphoria, deep feelings of empathy and happiness, increased amounts of energy and moderate hallucinogenic effects. Users often report feelings connected to each other in a significant way.
In addition to these pleasurable effects, MDMA also produces dangerous and uncomfortable side effects which include overheating, dehydration, teeth grinding, anxiety, insomnia and dilated pupils. Users are also more vulnerable to reckless or dangerous situations as their inhibitions are lowered.
With repeated use, MDMA can cause neurochemical imbalances that lead to depression, anxiety, restlessness, fatigue and cognitive difficulties due to its adverse effects on serotonin. Users may experience these effects when use is suddenly stopped, creating unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that often require professional detox and treatment.
