MDMA, like most perception-altering substances, has an 'ideal' dosage at
which the effect is most enjoyable. That dosage seems to be a little less
than 1mg per lb (or 2mg per kg). For most adults, this means a dose in
the range of 100mg-125mg.
Uh...I bought this pill, how do I know how many mg it is?
Unfortunately, users of MDMA are forced by unreasonable laws to purchase
the substance illegally. This makes it very difficult for the average
person to know how strong their pill is. Generally speaking, though, most
pills weigh in at a little under 100mg. Larger pills may contain 100mg or
more, but these are less common.
So how many pills should I take?
One is always a good number. If you find it to be a little weak, you
might try one and a half (bite the second one in half). IT IS HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED THAT YOU NEVER TAKE MORE THAN TWO. In most cases a dosage
this strong can incapacitate you (as you are 'rolling too hard'), and
might even be dangerous (see Safety
Concerns). Taking too much can also cause your serotonin to be
completely depleted even before the MDMA has run its course which can
cause depression and/or a severe "come down" feeling.
One or two pills used to do the trick for me, but lately I've needed more and more to roll.
Take a break! Your serotonin receptors have been bombarded from using MDMA too often. They will return, but you have to give them time. If you don't, you will find yourself continually needed more and more pills, until finally they simply do not work at all.
