Extreme Dizziness After Taking It
by RJ
Citation:   RJ. "Extreme Dizziness After Taking It: An Experience with MDMA (exp103847)". Sep 19, 2018.

4 tablets oral MDMA
I have taken MDMA about 20 times over the last 4 years, both in its crystallized form and as Ecstasy. Recently the effects of the high have become less magical and the after effects considerably worse.

Typically now when I take around 1g (or 4 ecstasy pills) over a night, I will feel drained the next day. What is more worrying is recently I have started to get extreme episodes of dizziness/vertigo starting from 48-72 hours after ingestion lasting for up to a week (9-10 days after ingestion). During this time Iím unable to work, and even simple tasks are a struggle. The dizziness comes on very suddenly and lasts for around 5-10 seconds.
The dizziness comes on very suddenly and lasts for around 5-10 seconds.
During this time I become nauseous and an unable to stand, often falling to the ground. It occurs multiple times during the day without an apparent trigger, and is more frequent when lying down.

This never used to occur, in the past I would feel no real negative physical effects, only a slight loss of concentration and a mild comedown/depression, lasting up to 2 days. This has happened on 3 occasions now, even though last time I took MDMA was over 6 months ago. It appears this is now how my body reacts to the drug and I am not going to take it again.
