Hi Mike,

Here's a good article about the overall effects of ecstasy for both incidental and longterm users:

Ecstasy doesn't affect dopamine receptors. I'm in psychology, and I think I should bring up a point that a college in my research methods class mentioned.

A lot of research is devoted to the neurochemical imbalances caused by ingestion of MDMA. Little credence is given to the idea that few exposures to MDMA may lead to permanent changes in how we view ourselves, and concurrently physiological symptoms can sometimes mirror psychological rather than physical difficulties.

MDMA was documented as therapeutically valuable in the counseling community in controlled settings, such as the therapist's office, because it allowed patients who wouldn't have been able to access certain traumas (who's repressions cause neuroses, well documented although rather Freudian).

Even in the recreational setting, the effects are the same and sometimes very dramatic. This is something to consider.

If you are really concerned, consult a psychiatrist but make sure they are either hospital-affiliated or check their background because in the psychological community we lack national standards (licensing is applied for at the state level).

I suffered a lot of problems after using E, but I realize part of my depression resulted from other emotional factors. Taking E released pent-up emotions due to some terrible trauma I experienced as a child. So....check out the article, and is a pretty good resource anyway. Good luck.
