Ecstasy Effects and History
April 11, 2012
Ecstasy is absorbed quickly into the bloodstream, initiating feelings of warmth, lowered inhibitions, perceptual distortions, euphoria and increased energy. These feelings wear off rapidly, leaving the user craving more ecstasy and increasing the likelihood of overdosing. Individuals who use the amphetamine ecstasy typically attend raves and clubs, putting themselves at risk of extreme dehydration from dancing. The adverse effects of ecstasy use on the brain are serious and long lasting, especially for those who use it regularly.
