The party drug ecstasy is usually offered in pill, tablet or capsule form and consumed. Ecstasy consists of a toxic cocktail of many different drugs, such as amphetamines, caffeine, MDMA, MDA, MDE, LSD, cocaine, heroin, and even rat poison or canine wormers. What exactly is contained in the drug ecstasy, the consumer usually does not know. Since the ecstasy tablets are often beautifully colored and printed with funny motifs, they are harmless. In fact, the drug Ecstasy has a huge potential for damage and addiction.
Effect of ecstasy
Due to the different composition, the mode of action of individual ecstasy pills is different. Most of the time, however, there is a feeling of infinite performance, impaired judgment and high sociability. But there are also:
- sleep disorders
- blurred vision
Persistent consumption causes brain damage, personality changes, cold feelings, depression, difficulty concentrating and psychosis. There is also the risk of kidney failure, bleeding, heart problems and permanent damage to the immune system.
Hallucinogens are very different psychoactive substances, but they all have a similar effect on the individual consumers. Types of hallucinogens include LSD (short for: lysergic acid diethylamide), toadstools, mescaline or nightshade plants as well as synthetic substances such as PCP and ketamine.
All of these drugs are characterized by causing profound changes in consciousness.
Effect of hallucinogens such as LSD
As the name implies, hallucinogens cause hallucinations. Consumers completely lose the sense of time and space and perceive things that can not be explained rationally. The physical mood before taking the drugs plays an important role. If the consumer is in a good mood, the hallucinogens can trigger euphoria and feelings of elation. In depressed, depressed people, however, this can turn into the opposite. Horror, panic and anxiety are the result.
Strong delusions can easily endanger consumers by jumping out the window and thinking they are standing on the diving platform of a swimming pool. In addition, hallucinations and psychosis can persist even after the drug effect has subsided.
