What are the effects of ecstasy

The effects of any drug (including ecstasy) vary from person to person. How ecstasy affects a person depends on many things including their size, weight and health, also whether the person is used to taking it and whether other drugs are taken around the same time. The effects of any drug also depend on the amount taken.

There is no safe level of drug use. Use of any drug always carries some risk—even medications can produce unwanted side effects. It is important to be careful when taking any type of drug.

Immediate effects

The effects of ecstasy may start to be felt within 20 minutes to 1 hour after an ecstasy pill has been swallowed and may last for approximately 6 hours.

Low to moderate doses

Some of the effects that may be experienced after taking ecstasy include:

  • increased confidence and energy
  • lowered inhibitions
  • feelings of wellbeing
  • feelings of closeness to others
  • empathy
  • anxiety
  • paranoia, aggression and psychosis
  • poor muscle control and unsteadiness
  • muscle aches and stiffness
  • increased blood pressure & heart rate
  • nausea
  • loss of appetite
  • increased body temperature
  • sweating
  • skin tingles
  • dilated pupils
  • heightened sensations (sight, hearing, touch)
  • jaw clenching
  • teeth grinding.

Higher doses

A high dose of ecstasy can cause a person to overdose. This means that a person has taken more ecstasy than their body can cope with. The effects can include:

  • floating sensations
  • vomiting
  • high body temperature
  • high blood pressure
  • increased heartbeat
  • hallucinations
  • irrational or bizarre behaviour
  • convulsions (fits).

Ecstasy has also been linked to several deaths through heart attack and brain haemorrhage.

Coming down

After using ecstasy, people may experience a “coming down” phase and may experience some of the following:

  • physical exhaustion
  • depression and irritability
  • insomnia
  • anxiety
  • paranoia
  • difficulty concentrating.

These effects of coming down usually begin the day after taking ecstasy and can last for several days.
