MDMA Ecstasy

MDMA (3,4, methylenedioxyamphetamine) is a class A drug that alters perceptual and emotional experience, giving enhanced appreciation of colour and sound, and increased empathy with others. The drug also has stimulant properties. It is popular at pop festivals and 'rave' parties, but may cause sudden death in such settings through cardiac arrhythmia, dehydration, and hyperthermia. The acute intoxication may resemble neuroleptic malignant syndrome or serotonin syndrome. It may precipitate or cause psychosis. Long-term use may have neurotoxic effects. Tolerance may develop.
