Why you Should Never Mix Alcohol and Molly

Molly/ crystallized MDMA (Methyl​enedioxy​methamphetamine) is the crystallized form of ecstasy. It can also come in gel, powder, or capsule forms. Molly is an illicit substance categorized by the DEA as a Schedule 1 drug and is not acceptable for medical use. It has a high chance of abuse, with users preferring it for its euphoric effects and affordability. It causes the release of large amounts of dopamine. 

Unfortunately, the hallucinogenic effects responsible for the good trips also make the drug highly addictive. The side effects of these drugs are lethal and mostly lead to long-term medical conditions. The effects worsen when combined with alcohol, an intoxicating substance. Although alcohol is legal in all states as long as ne is 21 years and above, it should be consumed in moderation, with only 2 units per day being recommended. 

How Molly Works and Affects Users

As a stimulant, Molly ignites/ activates the central nervous system. When this happens, users experience strong euphoric feelings and high energy levels. The drugs flood the users’ brains with serotonin and boost their sleep, mood, and appetite. 

It may also promote alertness, better mood, and focus. Dopamine in moderate amounts causes pleasurable feelings, but things go wrong when the tolerance level increases and users need more to feel the same high level. Unfortunately, this leads to drug dependency and addiction.

How does Alcohol Work?

As a depressant, alcohol tends to inhibit the working of your neural activity. Usually, users slow down, become sluggish, and suffer from impaired perceptions. Most users struggle with aggression and other risky behaviors when they over-consume alcohol. Alcohol also increases the presence of dopamine by suppressing neural activities. 

Effect of Mixing Alcohol and Molly

Combining Molly and alcohol means that the drugs tend to cancel each other out while increasing the good-feel hormone dopamine. This means that it is easy to overdose and cause serious consequences. While the expected effect is a cancellation, combining the two drugs worsens the side effects of each drug and even leads to further complications. 

For instance, combining the two substances leads to cellular stress due to the toxic cardiac effect. It also leads to organ damage, with the liver most affected when large amounts of the substances are processed.
