How does Ecstasy affect the brain? ECSTASY increases the activity of three brain chemicals:
Dopamine—causes a surge in euphoria and increased energy/activity
Norepinephrine—increases heart rate and blood pressure, which are particularly risky for people with heart and blood vessel problems
Serotonin—affects mood, appetite, sleep, and other functions. It also triggers hormones that affect sexual arousal and trust. The release of large amounts of serotonin likely causes the emotional closeness, elevated mood, and empathy felt by MDMA users #ecstasy #drugs #drugoverdose #facts #health #pain #stroke #headache #migraine #winnielimkhoo #winniesharonlimkhoo #winnielimkhooneurologist #tips #manila #chinesegeneralhospital #maniladoctorshospital #philippines – at Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center
