How long does Ecstasy / MDMA Last?

How many people die from ecstasy?

It is difficult to precisely gauge the number of deaths from ecstasy in the U.S. because many sources that provide morbidity and mortality statistics report a pooled number of “psychostimulant”-related deaths which, in addition to MDMA, includes fatalities that occurred in association with substances like Adderall and Ritalin. Also complicating this picture are the issues of purity (many ecstasy street samples test for additional substances) and prevalent co-occurring use with other drugs that could be increasing the mortality estimates.

How do people die from Ecstasy / MDMA / Molly?

There are several potential life-threatening syndromes of toxicity associated with ecstasy use, including significant cardiovascular, hepatic (liver), and renal (kidney) issues. Perhaps the most commonly reported life-threatening emergency results from severe hyperthermia—or pathologically elevated body temperature—which may result from direct drug effects coupled with increased activity (e.g., dancing), warm environments, and dehydration.

Can you overdose on Ecstasy / MDMA / Molly?

Yes. Even pure MDMA is associated with life threatening toxicity at high enough doses. As much of the illicit product is adulterated with other substances with significant physiological effects, overdose risks may be even greater. Additionally, as ecstasy is frequently taken in a setting of polysubstance consumption (e.g., concurrent use of ecstasy and alcohol, cocaine, DXM, etc.), overdose risks are compounded accordingly.
