Undersupply of serotonin causes?
An undersupply of serotonin is most likely linked to what disorder?
Asked in Ecstasy
Why does ecstasy make you poop?
The reason you poop when you take ecstasy is because it causes the release of a large amount of serotonin. Serotonin causes diarrhea. Serotonin also causes the euphoria (hence similar drugs that increase serotonin are used as anti-depressants). The active substance in ecstasy is MDMA which is also an amphetamine.

What is the action of Prozac in the central nervous system?
Prozac is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) & acts to keep serotonin in the synapse (space between neurons). This is accomplished by inhibiting the normal process of extracting serotonin from the synapse by a process called reuptake. Keeping serotonin in the synapse longer causes the serotonergic neruons to be more effective.

Why does Ecstasy have a hard crash?
Because MDMA (Ecstasy) causes a flood of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is the chemical that creates a sense of well-being and balances your mood. Ecstasy causes all the serotonin in your brain to be released at once. That is why people often feel depressed and unhappy for a day or so after taking Ecstasy. All of the serotonin in their brain has been depleted, and it takes awhile for your brain to replace it. So, there is a comedown, or crash, after taking Ecstasy, but it is not nearly as bad as the comedown you get from other drugs, like speed and especially cocaine.
