Ecstasy Drug Effects

Ecstasy (MDMA) impacts people in many ways, but most of the emotional enhancements come from a burst of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter responsible for the feelings of well-being, happiness, love and sexual arousal. When on this drug, users develop a sense of empathy from this flush of serotonin. Like all drugs, it's a package deal that comes complete with side effects; ecstasy is notable for the depression that accompanies its hangover.

Signs of Ecstasy Usage

Most teens or young adults who frequent the party circuit, particularly those that stay out all night, have some exposure to this drug. The most telltale signs that someone has used ecstasy occurs as the user comes down from the high.
  • Irritability
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Leftover feelings of love and empathy -- known as the afterglow
  • Paranoia
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Jaw soreness (when high on Ecstasy, it is common to clench the jaw or grind the teeth)
Long-term effects may include damage to the brain that leads to Parkinson's disease later in life. There is also sign of memory deficits from chronic use of the drug. Overdose can cause renal failure, stroke and damage to the heart. It is unclear whether the body develops a chemical dependence to MDMA, but users certainly feel an emotional attachment to it.

Drug Testing for Ecstasy

Despite it's current incarnation as a "club drug", ecstasy was originally developed for truckers in Europe looking for a synthetic way to remain awake for long periods of time. Addressing this, all US DOT (Department of Transportation) drug tests now include ecstasy. Health Street has several urine drug tests and hair follicle tests that can detect ecstasy for up to approximately 90 days, and DOT drug tests which include a screening for Ecstasy.
