There are some ecstasy tablets going around which do not contain MDMA. Many users are finding these tablets unpleasant as they produce quite different effects to MDMA. Negative effects are more likely where multiple tablets have been used or where they have been used with other substances and/or alcohol.
The Mitsubishi tablets contain a hallucinogenic substance (either AMT or 5BIT). These drugs are active in low doses and can cause serious unpleasant side effects. This can include mental confusion and hallucinations: visuals, hearing things or feeling strange sensations (like things crawling over you).
The yellow tablets contain a very potent stimulant (either PMA/PMMA) which can cause toxic effects and have been linked to several deaths.
For your own safety, you are advised not to use tablets with these markings.
Signs of an overdose could include:
- hyperthermia (very high body temperature or overheating)
- rapid heart rate
- severe nausea and vomiting
If you or your friends develop any unpleasant side effects, please contact your GP, call NHS 24 on 08454 242424 or visit A and E.
If you are concerned about your drug use and would like some support please contact the Hampshire Drug & Alcohol Recovery Service on 023 9268 3371 (24 hours)
