Do not use MDMA: One cannot use illegal drugs such as mdma while on fluoxetine because illegal drugs are unhealthy, harmful, and may react with prescription drugs; not to mention the fact that they are illegal. Both mdma and fluoxetine alter brain chemistry and brain function.

MDMA (ecstasy) is an offshoot of a 1990's drug MDMAI. That drug was described as an entactogen meaning a group of drugs that produce very clear and distinct emotional and behavioral effects similar to Ecstasy. It was also a big time NO-NO for human use.

How long will the side effects of fluoxetine last?

As always, it depends.: In most cases, when starting an antidepressant side effects will resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks. Fluoxetine can actually take up to a month to clear most of the drug from your system, so if you're stopping the medication side effects can linger for quite a while.
