If someone is overdosing, call 911, or your local emergency services number, immediately. If you are qualified, administer CPR. Use Naloxone (Narcan) if available.

Ecstasy, or MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine), is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception. It’s chemically similar to both stimulants and hallucinogens. It produces increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.

MDMA increases serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine neurotransmitter activity in the brain. A flood of these neurotransmitters causes the mood-lifting effects of MDMA.

Ecstasy is commonly found as a tablet or pill, often stamped with various symbols or logos. It can also be crystalline or powdered, sometimes referred to as "molly," which is often used to imply a purer form of MDMA, (content can vary widely). It may also be called XTC, rolls, E, X, and beans.

Ecstasy is often found in pressed pill form, meaning that other additives can be used to create the pill. Bad actors may cut the ecstasy with cheaper ingredients, such as fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid that is extremely easy to overdose on. Overdosing on fentanyl can occur even when a small amount is ingested, and the depressant effects on the central nervous system cause life threatening reactions. During fentanyl overdose, there is usually respiratory failure, where breathing becomes slow, shallow, or even stops completely. Without immediate medical intervention, an overdose can be fatal.

Some people with ecstasy addiction may need a more intensive level of care to help monitor and manage their symptoms. When talking to your doctor, consider discussing which lev
