Thanking Myself

Citation:   LBW. "Thanking Myself: An Experience with MDMA (exp8562)". Aug 6, 2001.

  oral Tryptophan (capsule)
    oral MDMA  


I just started using X this past February. Having loved it, I did it every weekend for a month after my initial try. I started experiencing 'Terrible Tuesdays': mood swings, lethargy, and depression during the week. My friends (who have been doing X for about three years on a pretty regular basis) clued me in to the fact that if you take 100 mg of 5-HTP daily before bed, the moodiness and depression stops.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a serotonin booster that you can buy OTC at Walgreens for about $10 a bottle, and it has other benefits as well. My appetite has been cut in half, and I've lost 20 lbs. I sleep like a baby because serotonin is one of the building blocks of melatonin, and there have been absolutely no emotional/mental side effects from X since I've started taking it. Take two before bed on regular nights, and four on nights when you know you'll be rolling the next day. You'll thank yourself for it.
