As I have seen quite a few drugs come into glory and fall from grace; I am cautious to adopt new psychopharmacological interventions.
According to Wikipedia, MDMA-assisted Paychotherapy still remains controversial.
“Adverse effects include addiction, memory problems, paranoia, difficulty sleeping, teeth grinding, blurred vision, sweating, and a rapid heartbeat. Deaths have been reported due to increased body temperature and dehydration. Following use people often feel depressed and tired. MDMA acts primarily by increasing the activity of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline in parts of the brain. It belongs to the substituted amphetamineclasses of drugs and has stimulant and hallucinogenic effects.”Usage may also be associated with permanent damage to neurons.
I see that some short term studies looks “promising”. I am weary of the unknown longterm risk-benefit ratio. I think I would perhaps first try some non-pharmacological mindfulness-based interventions.
Just my thoughts.
