Will taking mdma (ecstasy) 5 days before a breast reduction surgery cause any issues?

Why do it? This is a drug that may be popular on the street but it's purity and both short/long term side effects are not completely understood. At the very least I would be concerned about the potential effects on your heart rhythm while undergoing General anesthesia. Even for herbal supplements, we advise cessation a minimum of two weeks prior to surgery.
