Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, ecstasy, e, Molly, MD) is a stimulant which comes as a powder or crystals. The term ecstasy refers to pills made from MDMA, which usually come with patterns pressed into them. They are sometimes mixed with amphetamines, caffeine, or other synthetic substances. MDMA increases your heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature.

It can make you feel energetic, confident, happy, emotional and empathetic. It can also make you feel dizzy, sweaty and agitated, cause dehydration, teeth grinding, and reduced appetite. A high dose can make you confused, anxious, nauseous and even cause hallucinations.
