  37. MDMA
  38. MDMA and 5-HTP are dangerous when done at the same time. However, 5-HTP can mean a world of difference for recovering from MDMA and other drugs.
  39.  
  40. One must use 5-HTP AFTER your MDMA high fades and the dysphoric comdown begins. Wait AT LEAST 5-6 hours after the last dose of MDMA.
  41.  
  42. The basis for doing this is that 5-HTP is a necessary precursor for the brain to produce more serotonin, and MDMA use depletes a person's natural serotonin levels, thus taking 5-HTP after consuming MDMA is speculated as helping improve serotonin production.
  43.  
  44. 5-HTP should be taken with EGCCG(Green Tea Extract). EGCG paired with 5-HTP promoted accumulation of serotonin in the brain instead of the periphery. This is important because free 5-HTP in the bloodstream and cause cardiovascular complications.
