Note: this site has a lot of information. Just sticking to these 5 things is awesome - if you have time, check out the rest of the information below though.
‘I do it every single time I take MDMA. I have an amazing 6 hour roll if I re-dose at 1.5 hours in. I get an awesome nights sleep; probably 6 hours or so. Then I wake up feeling like a million dollars. Everything I eat the next day tastes absolutely delicious, and a good craft beer makes my pupils dilate like crazy. I then have a 2 week long afterglow. There is no comedown, and no adverse side effects. Half of the reason I take MDMA now is the 2 week long afterglow. I am happier and more in tune with people's emotions for a while after taking it. Another person took my supplementation on NYE after reading my post. He wrote me a couple days later saying that he rolled harder than he ever has and had no comedown. He was very excited that it worked. Try it and see.’
1 hour before
200mg+ Magnesium (proper form)
ALA (100mg before and every 2 hours of the roll)
After (once completely come down)
200mg 5-HTP (avoid taking within 12 hours of rolling - before/after)
Ordering a bunch of supplements?
iHerb coupon for $10 off: XON237
I'd say to be perfectly honest, iHerb is the best unless you are just ordering only one or two items.
The Cost of Health
Yes, these supplements aren't all cheap. But not only can they help prevent tolerance, so you don't have to use as much MDMA for the same effects, but realistically the only motivation you should need is to consider that your health is priceless. MDMA is a drug, and does have side effects, though millions of people still do MDMA. Aspirin has side effects, alcohol has side effects, etc. If you're going to be taking MDMA and you have time to prepare, please at least take a few of these supplements.
Roughly ordered by importance.
If no exact dosing schedule is given, then the supplement is not super time sensitive. If it says before, then just aim to take them a few hours before rolling, and be finished taking everything 1 hour before rolling.
During? Just take 1 or 2 doses at some point during your roll.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Why? Powerful antioxidant (long-term, antioxidants are more important than 5-HTP).
Racemic ALA (cheaper, inferior form) - 200mg before MDMA dose and every hour of roll.
Na-R-ALA (preferred) - 100mg before and every 2 hours of roll.
Magnesium (bioavailable form - avoid the oxide forms)
Why? Prevents jaw clenching.
Magnesium Glycinate - 2,000mg (200mg elemental Mg) 6 hours before, 1 hour before, and during.
Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate is preferred to ascorbic acid)
Why? Antioxidant that reduces neurotoxicity and hepatotoxicity.
Vitamin C - (2,000mg vitamin C) 1 hour before and during. (Emergen-C is a fine source of Vitamin C)
Why? Antioxidant that reduces neurotoxicity.
Why? Antioxidant that reduces neurotoxicity.
ALCAR - 500mg before and during
Green Tea Extract (EGCG)
Why? Antioxidant that reduces neurotoxicity. Can also help prevent difficulty urinating.
EGCG - 400mg before and during.
Why? Helps restore serotonin levels.
5-HTP (with 400mg EGCG to enable absorption) - 100mg before bed for 3 days following MDMA use.
NOTE: Avoid within 12 hours either side of taking MDMA.
Why? Antioxidant that reduces neurotoxicity. Also helps sleep.
Melatonin - 5-10mg before bed (Keep in mind we are using a higher dose here for it's antioxidant properties. Normal dosages should be .5mg to 1mg.)
Why? Protects neurons.
CoQ10 - 100mg before rolling.
Why? Potentially reduces tolerance.
Inositol - 1g before sleep the night after rolling.
Why? Protects the liver.
Milk Thistle - 1 pill the day after rolling
Why? Supports brain health in many ways.
Fish Oil - 4-6 pills a day for a few days before and after rolling (fish oil is good to take every day).
Is 'Molly'/MDMA bad for you?
The fact is, all drugs may do some damage - from Panadol to Methamphetamine.
It's hard to say 'X is bad' 'Y isn't bad' - it's just a scale of less bad/more bad.
MDMA is definitely on the less bad end of the scale, especially when done right.
MDMA is much worse when you don't do it properly. It's far more common for the "MDMA" or "molly" you are buying to not be pure MDMA. If done correctly, and only if done correctly, MDMA can be used every few months with very minimal damage.
Start smaller (no more than 100mg), in case you are one of the small pecentage that is susceptible to liver/heart issues.
Most common: 100mg per pill
Small/sensitive people: 60-90mg
Most people: 75-125mg
Large/less sensitive: 110-150mg
Redose: generally about 1/2 of the original dose, 2-3 hours in.
Surround yourself with your best friends and awesome music
Avoid dangerous combinations (see the list below)
Avoid snorting it (shorter duration, also the effects won't come in waves)
Have a little bit of caffeine at some point to keep you going
Have some strong minty gum
Get Vicks Vaporub (avoid smelling it the whole night, and don't get it in anyone's eyes though)
Other things that are awesome
Share these tricks with others on the night in person (and now, online) - making others happy will make you happy!
Amphetamines are generally a bad idea
Definitely avoid mixing with Cocaine, deaths have been reported, and you won't feel as much of the MDMA.
Alcohol - being tipsy is okay, avoid being drunk.
Do not take antidepressants (SSRI, SNRI, SDRI, SDNRI, MAOI) before/during rolling (e.g. Prozac, Zoloft - they can lead to damage and also greatly reduce the roll). Tobacco is fine (it’s an extremely weak MAOI). Though taken after you have finished rolling, SSRIs can ease the comedown
Don’t take 5-HTP during rolling - after rolling is extremely beneficial, but not during. Avoid 5-HTP within 12 hours of rolling.
Also avoid: 2C-T7, 2C-T2, 4-MTA, Syrian Rue, PMA, Caapi, Ayahuasca (other than DMT base smoked), aMT, DXM, MXE, most opioids, Yohimbe
Avoid with MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitor). Vital. Avoid the combination. (including Herbal drugs and Pharmaceuticals. e.g. Resveratrol, Methylene Blue, and more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoamine_oxidase_inhibitor#List_of_MAOIs)
Others find that they become too ‘logical’ while rolling, and lose out on some of the empathy boost.
If you do, try 10mg noopept or 3200mg piracetam for a few days before, the day of, and a few days after.
