MAMD????: Do you mean MDMA? This is ecstasy, a street drug that is very dangerous alone. When combined with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) the danger is greatly increased. How much damage you do depends on how much ecstasy and what else is cut with it, including poisons. There is no way to tell how severe or permanent the damage might be. This is why you should JUST SAY NO! Don't do it. How many brain cells can you spare?

MDMA acts on serotonin receptors as well as dopamine. Vyvanse primary effects epinephrine receptors, but also dopamine. Combining them can lead to seizure and life threatening irregular heart beats as well as schizophrenia-like psychosis. There have been deaths from MDMA due to lead, arsenic and other contaminants. Accidental overdose on drugs is the LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH in the USA,
