I’m 3 months in this hell. I have all symptoms under the sun and I think about suicide everyday.

Mdma Long term Comedown "

It has a lot of names. In my opinion we should expose this syndrome as an a unique condition, to expose the case more clearly and be closer to a cure, we all have the same symptoms.

This is a living hell as you know. 1 pill of finasteride, 1 of mdma, 1 pill of Ssri, 1 pill accutane… we are the unlucky people that got receptors damage

So you got the post drug syndrom (PFS, PSSD, PAS, PMS, pmdma) from 3,4-Methylendioxy-N-methylamphetamin MDMA called Extasy

There once has to be a big review about all this horrible Hormon (androgen) receptor disruptors to inform the public community about the risks and to get an own ICD 10 entry for all the post drug syndromes.

But pharma cartel fight like drug lords for their market. In your case pharma cartel and drug cartels share the same interests.

Welcome @MarkArg, and I’m sorry this Is happening to you.

I can’t recall seeing anyone else with long-term symptoms from MDMA use that resemble the ones people get from PFS. So this seems novel and rare.

Did you experience a “crash”? Has anything changed since the symptoms started?

It’s pretty common actually, there are a lot of people suffering this condition with Mdma for years.

We have exactly the same symptoms as for SSRI/Finasteride/Accutane (I’m NOT saying that is the same condition for Finasteride, it could be completely different reason but the symptoms are the same)

Why I posted it here is because I think people should know that lot of people got the same symptoms also for things that affect serotonin receptors only.

Pharmacology often pigeonholes a drug with multiple primary or secondary effects into one main mechanism of action. This is probably the case because a wall-sized chart of network interactions would be needed to convey the known facts about the effects of any single drug.

I remember seeing a case of it about 8 years ago on a hard flaccid / sexual exaustion type forum.

I was doing mdma with finasteride lord what a fool I was.

interesting, im sorry you have these symptoms. For what its worth MDMA is the only drug I use nowadays other than weed and it hasn’t made my PFS worse so the mechanism could be different plus I’m clearly genetically predisposed to PFS but I used MDMA fine for many years before finasteride and had no symptoms so once again indicates different mechanism.

With that said maybe your chance of recovery is better than ours…
