MDMA ingestion

Ecstasy is usually sold as tablets of various shapes and colors with different imprints, or logos. It can also be found in the form of capsules. The predominant form of ingestion is swallowing. The average reported dose is one or two tablets, with each tablet containing between 75-160 milligrams of MDMA. The euphoria comes within 30 minutes and reaches its maximum after 90 minutes, and remains for about three hours. It is not uncommon for users to take a second dose of the drug as the effects of the first dose begin to fade.
