MDMA : Also known as "ecstasy" is a very potent street drug. Related to amphetamines and mescaline. Is psychoactive and can mess with your brain. Also, you don't really know what you're taking. You are just being told to "trust me", and you should know by now how that works. Stay away from that stuff!! It really can scramble your brain!!

Poor expectation: Insomnia is a common result of MDMA. Expect it. If you took "a night of MDMA," which sounds like repeated dose over time, all the more so. It would be a mistake to seek a substance to sleep after taking a substance which often keeps one awake, compounding the multiple effects of substance use. Far wiser to consider that MDMA is certainly not good for one's health, for many reasons.
