Ecstasy Drug Test
Ecstasy can be detected in drug tests that specifically include it as part of the panel of drugs being tested. Health Street offers various drug testing options via hair or urine specimens, which are available for both employers and individuals. Urine drug testing is most common, which looks back on drug use up to one week. Hair drug testing looks further back at approximately 90 days. Just choose the location for the ecstasy drug test and complete the registration. From there, a barcode will be sent to you or the person you specify, and should be presented at the facility upon arrival for the ecstasy drug test. Testing results are reported quickly, accurately, and stored securely in our online portal.
What Is Ecstasy?
Ecstasy (MDMA) is a synthetic stimulant, popular amongst clubgoers, that creates feelings of pleasure and empathy in users. Ecstasy unleashes a burst of serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for the feelings of well-being, happiness, love, and sexual arousal. Ecstasy is usually taken as a pill or powder, as many of us know due to hit films like Bad Boys II and MDMA. Like all drugs, it’s a package deal that comes complete with side effects; ecstasy is notable for the depression that accompanies its hangover.

Intended Use and Effects:
Long-term effects may include damage to the brain that leads to Parkinson’s disease later in life. There are also signs 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 people who use it certainly feel an emotional attachment to it.
Side Effects of Ecstasy
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 occur as the person comes down from the high.
