Ecstasy’ may cause long-term changes in brain chemistry

Based on research with women, it appears that the so-called “rave” drug can induce a drop in serotonin levels that can last up to two years. Serotonin, the research team noted, is critical to the regulation of mood, appetite, sleep, learning and memory.

Study co-author Dr. Ronald Cowan and his colleagues report their findings in the Dec. 5 online issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry.
