MDMA to treat PTSD is not just a pipe dream. Canada is on the cutting edge of treating patients suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder using MDMA, one of the ingredients in Extacy.
MDMA was criminalized in in the United States back in the mid 80’s. So much research on medical benefits have been placed on hold for 30 years. Though there have been some quack hippy doctors experimenting on people and even themselves, it hasn’t been done legally.
From what we’ve heard in the underground, MDMA is very helpful in treating PTSD when the patient takes a low dosage. Anything in the recreational dose levels can leave the patient depressed the following days with all their feel good brain chemical balance, completely out of balance. Dealing with re-uptake inhibitors and dopamine is not an easy balance. It’s seems if you use small control doses of MDMA daily this delicate balance remains more balanced with lesser highs and lesser lows.
I’m not sure if I can agree with this type of treatment, you can feel good from spending time with frends and family.
