Drug interactions / Mixing
Because it releases a huge amount of serotonin in the brain, people on MDMA generally feel a sensation of emotional warmth and heightened feelings of affection and empathy. If you mix MDMA with alcohol or other drugs however, the effects can significantly change your 'high' and make you feel unwell, putting your health in danger. Here are some interactions to be aware of:
Mixing MDMA with certain types of painkillers or antidepressants can be very dangerous.
MDMA, methamphetamine (ice and speed) and cocaine are all stimulants so if you take them together you may experience effects that can be very unpleasant or lead to an overdose.
Taking MDMA with alcohol increases the chance of dehydration and confusing leading you to take more MDMA than you meant to, increasing your risk of overdose.
