We don't know that Greg is referring to 'continual use' or what 'continual' means (and one would become tolerant to frequent use), nor do we know that it would be used specifically to modify mood -- as an 'antidepressant.' Further your warning could apply to clinical antidepressants themselves.

Hmmm..... I'll take a stab at a rational answer. Ecstasy depletes the synaptic vesicles of serotonin. SSRI's prevent the reuptake of serotonin. Sounds like a perfect combination for the serotonin syndrome.

Of course, I could be moralistic here. Perhaps Greg is *seeking* the serotonin syndrome. He is welcome to do anything he wants, as long as he accepts the consequences of his actions....
