Can one-time usage of mdma cause social anxiety for extended periods of time?

Can one-time usage of mdma cause social anxiety for extended periods of time?

Yes, in some: Mdma affects serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, leading to other effects as well. The surge of serotonin can deplete the brain of serotonin -- resulting in negative after-effects like confusion, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, etc. These may last for days or weeks afterwards. It's impossible to know the true or complete contents of what you took, making results more unpredictable. ...Read more

I took ecstasy ("molly"/pure mdma) last night, and the next morning I have one droopy eyelid. What could cause it?

I took ecstasy ("molly"/pure mdma) last night, and the next morning I have one droopy eyelid. What could cause it?

Sympathatomimetic: Sympathetic nervous system innervates the levator palpabrie superioris muscle, which elevates the eyelids. Ecstasy is methylenedioxymethamphetamine and it stimulates the sympathatic nervous system (sns) but it can also cause neurotoxicity of the sns, resulting in damage of the sns. Since, sns elevates the eyelid muscle, it's damage will result in drooping of the eyelid. ...Read more
