I’m still relatively new to MDMA.. well, I shouldn’t say MDMA – I should say Party Pills as I guess I really don’t know what I’m taking (I’m buying a test kit soon).I love taking party pills because it’s much better to spend $50 – $75 (on pills) on a night out rather than $200 – $300 (on alcohol). But, my only worry is health risks. The only health risks I know about are, anxiety/paranoia from taking too much (only happened once to me), and over heating – which I avoid by drinking water every 1-2 hours. Is there any other health risks that I should be worried about? I guess you could say memory loss, but I have much more memory loss when drinking alcohol.
Common side effects of MDMA include loss of appetite, visual distortions, nystagmus (involuntary eye movement), increased heart rate and blood pressure, edginess, body temperature changes, vomiting, anxiety, perspiration, motion sicknesses, confusion, dry mouth, jaw tension and difficulty to concentrate.
Hyperthermia is extremely severe but extremely rare also. It is more likely to occur in close spaces when intense physical activity is engaged (for example, dancing for many hours) and when people don’t hydrate properly. To avoid this, it’s recommended to take breaks from dancing and restore liquids (with water and juices, or preferably with isotonic beverages, with moderation, approximately half a liter each hour if experiencing intense physical activity and less if resting), avoiding, if possible, alcohol because it increases dehydration and body heat.
MDMA produces an increase on heart beat and arterial pressure. Therefore people with heart conditions or hypertension should be cautious with its use.
High and continuous doses of MDMA in frequent users can potentiate in the future loss memory and mood alterations. The basic rule of MDMA’s use is “Less is more”. Bad side effects tend to decrease, as well as long time sequels, if one takes more time between consumptions. It is estimated that using MDMA more than once a month can be excessive. To moderate its use is the golden rule to enjoy the experience in all its fullness and prevent undesirable long time sequels.
It’s impossible to know a pill’s concentration of MDMA unless it’s analyzed in a laboratory. The team I work with is developing an International Drug Testing Service for Deep Web users that will be introduced in following weeks.
