Background info: I have been taking prozac for approximately the last year or so, I went from 10mg to 20mg to 40mg which is what I currently use daily to treat my anxiety.
I have taken MDMA before I started taking prozac but since starting it I tried it once and felt nothing (likely the effects were negated by the fact that I'm on an SSRI). I was disappointed but accepted it, prozac would alter my body's reactions to recreational drugs. I then began to research MDA and found it interesting that it doesn't only function on serotonin receptors (great! I might actually feel something from this!)
I did not take my prozac the day before doing the MDA and have not taken it since (a couple days later)
I took the MDA at 10:30pm, I had two portions, one was 75mg and the other was 25mg, since I hadn't tried it before I wanted to start out slowly and then add to it if I wasn't feeling anything. 30 minutes after taking the 75mg and not feeling anything I decided to just take the other 25mg (I didn't really expect to feel much anyways). Another ~30 minutes later and I felt what felt to me like the classic MDMA roll, I was giddy, had a ton of energy, I felt like I had a massive weight lifted off my shoulders and could finally function as a regular non-depressed human being. I took this at a rave and was really into the music and talking to people.
I peaked at around midnight or so and my pupils were EXTREMELY dilated. I could feel myself getting dehydrated from dancing in a lot of layers so I made sure to drink a lot of water and ended up changing into something less hot because I was so sweaty.
From then it slowly started to taper down and plateau for maybe 3 or 4 hours. The rave ended at 3am and I was exhausted but still had a ton of energy. I got into bed and tried to sleep but I was still very intoxicated and was getting really annoying cold sweats, I could NOT get comfortable so I ended up going on a short walk to try and relax and maybe be able to sleep? This didn't really work until about 7am and my body was able to regulate its temperature better so I wasn't so uncomfortable. This almost felt like a meth comedown? It felt rough and uncomfortable, I was nauseous, my head felt heavy, and I was very jittery. I took a dramamine pill to ease the nausea and it didn't do much so I smoked some cannabis.
I was able to sleep for about 3-4 hours but after that I woke up and I didn't really feel any different than when I fell asleep, definitely still feeling intoxicated. Eventually (around 12pm) I got up to go to the bathroom (I had to be drinking water constantly or my throat became extremely dry and scratchy). My pupils were STILL dilated, and I still felt intoxicated, I wasn't sure if I was just feeling the cannabis or if it was the MDA but since my eyes were super dilated I concluded it was from the MDA because I have a pretty high cannabis tolerance and only smoked enough to fall asleep for a bit. My nausea came back after having some coffee because I hadn't eaten anything but a protein bar in like 10 hours probably. I needed to take a shower and didn't have any food so I smoked some more cannabis and tried to at least keep hydrated and drink lots of water. I took a shower, got ready for the day, and now at 2:30pm I STILL feel intoxicated and I think this is from the MDA because again, I didn't smoke very much and I have a pretty high tolerance, also my pupils are STILL very dilated, they don't get much smaller when exposed to light either.
Why did this MDA last SO long? It almost felt like a meth-y acid trip in the sense that it lasted forever and I was jittery and couldn't sleep or get comfortable. I only got (very) mild visuals despite reading that MDA can act like a psychedelic.
