Ecstasy is a man-made psychedelic drug with hallucinogenic properties. Ecstasy's active ingredient, MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine), acts as a psychoactive stimulant, causing hyperawareness of the senses, heightened empathy, emotional openness, and intense euphoria. Fueled by a release of the neurotransmitters Serotonin and Norepinephrine, ecstasy users experience a rush of energy and happiness, leading to feelings of hyperactivity and emotional connectedness. However, due to the rapid release of Serotonin, ecstasy users experience the depletion of this vital neurotransmitter in the days following an ecstasy trip, leading to depression, anxiety, and lethargy.
One of the most serious risks of ecstasy addiction is dehydration, which leads to intense fevers, overheating, and in some cases possibly death. With continual use, ecstasy users can also experience other side effects such as tooth and gum disease, bruxism (teeth grinding), jaw clenching, and high blood pressure. Chronic ecstasy use can also lead to severe depression, anxiety, lethargy, memory loss, and cognitive disturbances.
