Ecstasy is a man-made psychedelic substance 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 weakening of this important neurotransmitter in the days following an ecstasy trip, leading to depression, anxiety and lethargy.
One of the more substantial risks of ecstasy addiction is dehydration, which leads to intense fever, overheating, and possibly death. With ongoing use, ecstasy users can also experience other side effects such as tooth and gum disease, bruxism (teeth grinding), jaw clenching and high blood pressure, as well as transmission of sexually transmitted diseases from lowered inhibition during intoxication. Chronic ecstasy use can also lead to severe depression, anxiety, lethargy, memory loss, and cognitive disturbances.
