Know the risks

  • You are at increased risk of harm if you:
    • Take multiple MDMA (ecstasy) tablets or capsules
    • Take a higher-dose MDMA tablet or capsule
    • Use other stimulant drugs (e.g. amphetamines or cocaine) at the same time
    • Take MDMA in a hot environment like a music festival or indoor dance party
  • MDMA (ecstasy) is often poorly manufactured and the amount of MDMA in a tablet or capsule can vary a lot, even within the same batch.
  • The time from taking the drug to feeling any effect can vary significantly depending on the drug as well as the individual person. If it's not working, don't re-dose.
  • High-dose MDMA use has been linked to death and other serious harms. 

Effects to look out for

  • Feeling really hot and sweaty
  • Racing heart/pulse or lightheadedness
  • Rigid muscles (e.g. difficulty walking), uncontrolled repetitive movements, seizures
  • Confusion or agitation, feeling aggressive, difficult to rouse / unconscious
  • Vomiting

If you or others experience these symptoms after taking MDMA, get help immediately.

Getting help

If you or your friends see the warning signs of overdose:

  • Seek help immediately from your nearest emergency department or call Triple Zero (000). You won't get into trouble for seeking medical care.
  • Start CPR if someone is not breathing.
