BACKGROUND The magnitude and the characteristics of the use of methamphetamine, MDMA (Ecstasy), LSD (d-lysergic acid diethylamide), ketamine, GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate), and flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) were examined in a probability sample of the U.S. civilian population that included multiethnic urban, suburban, and rural youths aged 16-23 (N=19,084). METHODS Data were drawn from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). Logistic regression analyses were conducted to identify the… Expand
Multiple drug ingestion by ecstasy abusers in the United States.
TLDR
The goal of this study was to determine the prevalence and patterns of licit and illicit drugs in urine specimens of ecstasy users and to suggest caution is recommended in interpretation. Expand
MDMA: Interactions with other psychoactive drugs
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to summarize current knowledge about the changes on MDMA-related behavior, pharmacology, and neurotoxicity associated with co-consumption of other drugs of abuse and psychoactive agents. Expand
The variety of ecstasy/MDMA users: results from the National Epidemiologic Survey on alcohol and related conditions.
TLDR
The recent resurgence in ecstasy use among adults underscores the need to monitor trends in its use and the potential heterogeneity of ecstasy or MDMA users. Expand
The high prevalence of substance use disorders among recent MDMA users compared with other drug users: Implications for intervention.
TLDR
Adult MDMA users who have recently used MDMA should be screened for possible SUDs to ensure early detection and treatment of drug-related problems. Expand
Hallucinogen-related disorders in a national sample of adolescents: the influence of ecstasy/MDMA use.
TLDR
Adolescent MDMA users appear to be particularly at risk for exhibiting hallucinogen dependence and other substance use disorders, particularly among adolescents aged 12-17 years. Expand
The risky cocktail: what combination effects can we expect between ecstasy and other amphetamines?
TLDR
Predicting the cytotoxic effects of mixtures of four amphetaminic derivatives: MDMA, methamphetamine, 4-methylthioamphetamine and d-amphetamine in a human hepatoma cell line demonstrates that potentially harmful interactions among amphetamine drugs are expected when these drugs are taken concomitantly. Expand
Difference in long-term relapse rates between youths with ketamine use and those with stimulants use
TLDR
Compared to adolescents who use ketamine, those using MDMA or methamphetamine had higher relapse rates and were more likely to use the same type of drug upon relapsing. Expand
Flunitrazepam intake in male offenders
TLDR
It is suggested that antisocial behavior defined by Facet 4 in the studied subjects is more typical for FZ users than it is for non-FZ users, and clinicians should be aware that criminals with high scores on Facets 4 have a more than fourfold odds of being a FZ user. Expand
Illicit Drug Use in a Community-Based Sample of Heterosexually Identified Emerging Adults
TLDR
The data suggest that illicit drug use in emergent adulthood does not develop in a monolithic manner and synergies must be considered in relation to gender, school enrollment, and employment that first surface in the child and adolescent developmental stages. Expand
Correlates of African American female adolescent offenders 3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or “Ecstasy”) use and sexually transmitted infection morbidity
TLDR
Prevention programs for adolescent offender populations should develop interventions that target adolescents’ substance use behavior as a function of STI risk taking as well as being culturally competent to deal specifically with these problem behaviors. Expand

Ecstasy and Drug Consumption Patterns: A Canadian Rave Population Study
TLDR
It is found that drug consumption levels were substantial in this “rave” population, particularly with respect to recent use of MDMA, amphetamine, cannabis, and alcohol. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of drug use and dependence in the United States. Results from the National Comorbidity Survey.
TLDR
Use and dependence were found to be more common in cohorts born after World War II than those born before the end of the war and these, in turn, differed from the predictors of recent dependence among people with a lifetime history of dependence. Expand
Is the Use of Ecstasy and Hallucinogens Increasing?
TLDR
A substantial increase in both the use of ecstasy and related substances as well as hallucinogens is suggested, which is strongest in younger age groups, but the risk of first use of these substances continues to be present up to the age of 24 years. Expand
Comparative epidemiology of initial drug opportunities and transitions to first use: marijuana, cocaine, hallucinogens and heroin.
TLDR
Light is shed on the epidemiology of the earliest stages of drug involvement in the USA and recent increases in the estimated probability of using an illicit drug once an opportunity occurs, particularly for hallucinogens. Expand
Profiles of urine samples from participants at rave party in Taiwan: prevalence of ketamine and MDMA abuse.
TLDR
The patterns of drug abuse by the participants in a metropolitan city disco-dancing club and the general public in Taiwan are reported and ketamine and one of the amphetamines were detected together in 42.9% of the samples. Expand
Increasing use of "Ecstasy" (MDMA) and other hallucinogens on a college campus.
TLDR
Mescaline/psilocybin and Ecstasy were more likely than the other drugs to have been used first during the students' college years, according to the 1990 study. Expand
Shedding new light on the "safe" club drug: methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy)-related fatalities.
TLDR
The MDMA-associated fatal events typically occur in young, otherwise healthy individuals, and MDMA's impact on the public health and safety of young adults and teenagers needs further assessment. Expand
MDMA ('ecstasy') use, and its association with high risk behaviors, mental health, and other factors among gay/bisexual men in New York City.
TLDR
The data suggest that MDMA use is associated with being more 'out', which may be advantageous in helping gay men deal with harmful psychological effects of stigma, but may place individuals in settings that expose them to MDMA. Expand
Use, abuse and dependence of ecstasy and related drugs in adolescents and young adults-a transient phenomenon? Results from a longitudinal community study.
TLDR
The majority of the ESH users stopped their use spontaneously in their twenties, but 50% of those that once had fulfilled DSM-IV criteria of dependence continued to use these substances. Expand
High prevalence of substance use disorders among adolescents who use marijuana and inhalants.
TLDR
The study findings suggest that among lifetime adolescent drug users, those who use both inhalants and marijuana are at very high risk for alcohol and drug use disorders. Expand
