Abstract

3, 4, Methylenedioxymetamphetamine (M.D.M.A., Ecstasy) is a modified amphetamine with stimulant and hallucinogenic properties. Ecstasy has been increasingly abused in Dublin in recent years. It is commonly perceived by users as a safe drug. We report a case of prolonged psychosis following brief recreational use of Ecstasy.
