I wouldn't take MDMA: for any reason, because its really bad for your brain cells. It would not primarily target most of the same neurotransmitters as Prozac (fluoxetine), (fluoxetine) but the crash afterwards would certainly be in the wrong direction. Prozac (fluoxetine) is an anti-depressant with some anti-anxiety properties. Why would you want to take something that would likely cause you MORE depression afterwards?
