It’s also called MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine). This so-called party drug, which is usually taken by tablet or capsule, can affect your mood and distort how you perceive people and things around you, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.Using ecstasy can have damaging long-term consequences, too.Symptoms of Ecstasy UseThe National Institute on Drug Abuse says that about 45 minutes after you take a dose, you may feel:A greater sense of well-beingMore energyHeightened physical sensesMore warmth and empathy toward other peopleWilling to talk about emotional memoriesYou could also have bad side effects, including:OverheatingJaw clenchingFeeling disconnected from your body or thoughtsNauseaHot flashes or chillsStiff muscles or jointsEcstasy's Long-Term Effects The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that if you keep using ecstasy, you may develop problems including:Worse sleepLess appetiteTrouble concentratingImpulsive behaviorDepressionHeart diseaseHarshal Kirane, MD, the medical director of Wellbridge Addiction Treatment and Research, tells WebMD Connect to Care that “the repeated use of ecstasy places the user at tremendous risk for overdose and cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke.” Kirane says ongoing MDMA use can also be linked to: Damage to the brain and nervous system Changes in memory A higher risk for blood vessel problems affecting the brainThe National Institute on Drug Abuse says that some of these long-term problems may not be due to ecstasy use alone. Rather, they might be connected to using ecstasy along with other drugs, like cocaine, alcohol, or marijuana. Or they might also be linked to risky ingredients in ecstasy tablets called adulterants. “The drug itself is challenging to study in the real world, as adulterated forms of MDMA, or completely different forms of amphetamine, are used under the umbrella term of ‘ecstasy,’” Kirane says. So, the long-term effects may vary from one particular ecstasy drug to another.Don’t Wait.
