Ecstasy Questions and Answers

February 6, 2010

 

A. Is it possible to overdose on ecstasy? Yes, it is possible to overdose on ecstasy though it's pretty rare that people do. It would in fact, take a lot of ecstasy to cause a fatal overdose. Individuals however, increase this risk by mixing ecstasy with other drugs. Depending on the type and potency of the other drug taken, mixing ecstasy can be quite dangerous. It is generally not a good idea to mix drugs, especially illegal ones where there is little control over what is actually in them. 

 

B. I am addicted to ecstasy, where do I go for help? Persons with an addiction to ecstasy will want to contact a rehab facility and inquire about what type of treatment plans they have. Often times, outpatient care will be enough for a person to get the help that they need. Other times, inpatient treatment may be necessary. Ultimately, it will come down to the individual and the severity of their addiction.

 

C. Can long term ecstasy use be damaging?: Yes, long term ecstasy use can be damaging. It is a neurotoxin which damages the brain. Overtime, if an individual continues to take ecstasy, they may develop brain damage.

 

D. Is ecstasy physically addicting? No, ecstasy is not considered physically addicting.  However, it can be psychologically addicting. A psychological addiction can be just as difficult to beat as a physical one, there are just fewer physical risks associated with the use of the drug.

 

E. How can I tell whether or not an ecstasy pill is pure? Many times ecstasy pills will contain some substance other then ecstasy. Sometimes these substances are drugs, other times they are fillers. This can pose a danger if the ecstasy is mixed with a stronger more potent drug, partly because the individual taking it is not prepared for its effects. They may have also already taken a drug that may mix dangerously with ecstasy and whatever else is in it. The only way to know if an ecstasy pill is pure is to use a testing kit. These can easily be purchased online and will allow users to know in a matter of minutes whether or not the ecstasy they have purchased is pure. The process is simple. An individual will need to scrape a little bit of the drug off and put it in a special solution. It will turn a certain color if it is pure. Sometimes, raves and clubs will have these kits available onsite.
