People may combine MDMA with alcohol to prolong a high, but the combination of both drugs can cause dangerous side effects.
Here we look at the side effects and risks of combining MDMA and alcohol, precautions to take, and treatment options for recovery.
MDMA (3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) is a drug that changes a person’s mood and has similar effects to stimulants and hallucinogens.
It is a synthetic drug made from safrole oil. It affects chemicals in the brain and increases the release of serotonin, which causes the elevated mood that people experience with MDMA.
People may take MDMA as a tablet, liquid, or snort it in powder form. Dealers may mix MDMA with other drugs and substances, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, or ketamine.
