Ecstacy - It's chemical name is MDMA

MDMA works by releasing much higher than normal levels of seretonin in your brain. Seretonin is a natural chemical in your brain which regulates mood and sleep. It's the 'happy' chemical.

People don't react to the same drug in exactly the same way. Below are a list of positive, neutral and negative effects of the drug Ecstacy. If you ever do take the drug, you should expect to experiance some of these effects but not all of them. The number of good and bad effects you get from the drug, depend on your body and the amount of hte drug you take.


extreme mood lift
increased willingness to communicate
increase in energy (stimulation)
ego softening
feelings of comfort, belonging, and closeness to others
feelings of love and empathy
increased awareness & appreciation of music
increased awareness of senses. (eating, drinking, smell)
profound life-changing spiritual experiences
neurotically based fear dissolution
sensations bright and intense
urge to hug and kiss people

- These are the effects people seek when they use E - You become very loving, carefree and joyful while on the drug, so it's no surprise alot of people take the drug at all night raves and dance clubs.

rapid, involuntary eye jiggling (nystagmus)
mild visual hallucinations (uncommon)
moderately increased heart rate and blood pressure (increases with dose)
