Ecstasy, which is also known as MDMA or Molly, is a psychoactive drug that is used for recreational purposes. It can cause someone to feel an increased amount of energy and empathy as well as create euphoric experiences. If MDMA is taken by mouth, its effects usually begin within about 30 minutes. Then, they dissipate in three to six hours. This psychoactive drug was popular during the 1970s and 1980s, but it is experiencing a resurgence. A lot of people like to mix MDMA with methamphetamine and ephedrine. MDMA influences levels of serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline in the central nervous system to exert its effects. Individuals who take MDMA often describe seeing vivid colors, sounds blurring together, and objects having wavy lines or appearances. MDMA is a Schedule I controlled substance.
