Ectasy Dangers

February 6, 2010

 

One of the biggest dangers associated with MDMA use is that one never really knows what they are taking. Tablets are often mixed with other drugs, some much more powerful and dangerous then ecstasy.  In order to determine exactly what is in an ecstasy pill, an individual would need to test their MDMA tablets with a kit. It is possible to purchase ecstasy testing kits for this purpose. Some clubs and raves will also have ecstasy testing kits. This is because a lot of ecstasy is sold at both clubs and raves. 

 

Although a person will feel good when high from ecstasy, there are also some very negative side effects. Common ones include eye twitching, nausea, depression, tiredness and vomiting.

 

One of the most dangerous side effects of using MDMA is the potential for overheating.  People can and do die from overheating and subsequent dehydration. Some people will take ecstasy at a club or rave and dance for hours without re-hydrating themselves. This is extremely dangerous. Individuals that do so are putting themselves at serious risk, one which can be fatal. To avoid this, individuals must make an effort to drink plenty of water while using ecstasy and partying. However, it is important not to go overboard.  Drinking too much water can also be dangerous and even fatal. Blackouts, hypothermia and hyponatremia are other potential side effects of ecstasy use.

 

Ecstasy is a psychoactive stimulant popular amongst young people, clubbers and ravers. While many users believe it to be perfectly safe, there are a number of associated dangers that ecstasy users need to watch out for and be aware of. They include, but are not limited to using pills that contain other drugs besides ecstasy. Ecstasy pills sold on the street almost always contain a drug (s) other then ecstasy. They could be mixed with a substance or drug more harmful or potent then ecstasy. Users won’t know until after they have taken the drug. If they have been using other drugs besides ecstasy, then they run the risk of having a bad drug interaction. Dehydration and water toxicity are also risks.

 

Long-term ecstasy use may also cause problems with memory, anxiety and depression.  Because MDMA is a neurotoxin, it can have a negative impact on the brain, essentially causing brain damage.
