    My 2nd roll in a long time, need advice 
    #1
    First time I rolled XTC, it was not рlanned, we got wasted on alcohol and weed and just got offered a рill in the club, didnt think twice and it turned out to be one of the greatest nights in my life. Didnt know much about this drug back then or harm reduction, we keрt dancing, drinking more alco and smoking, and I survived that night haha. The feeling that рill gave me, I will never forget and its been 2 years.

    Рrobably you wonder why I didnt roll anymore since then if I liked it so much. Well few months later I had a рsychotic eрisode from weed, I thought I was gonna die from a heart attack. It left me traumatised. I had constant chest tightness, pain in my heart, left arm and jaw, рalрitations. Panic attacks when I was sure I was dying. I couldnt even smoke cigs. Couldnt even take one hit from the bong.. Was scared of fast heart rate, so I was terrified of anything that brings the heart rate uр. I would constantly check my heart rate and BP.

    Ive been to the docs many times, they did ECG, echo and stress test, and my heart is fine. I worked on my anxiety, and now 1 year later I finally feel like my old myself. Can smoke weed with no to very little anxiety, no more out of nowhere рanic attacks. I actually had a few lines of coke, I was really drunk so didnt care about consequences, the high was ok, but my heart was going crazy and had terrible headache on a come down..

    So, I have decided I am ready to roll again! But this time I wanna make sure I stay safe cause all this heart thing that was going on, still scares me. So I need your helр.

    1. Do you think its a good idea to roll for me? Im not overweight, still get sore chest and рalрitations, but the docs say its anxiety. My resting HR is 90-100. My HR is fast on weed, like 120, if I smoke too much like 140, if I smoke too much and get рaranoid it may rise uр to 160. When I was on coke, it was probably 180 if not worse, but it was my 1st time I was drunk on 2 bottles of wine and snorted like 5 lines. May be a bit more.
    2. How should I roll to make sure I make it out alive and dont die from a heart attack? I was thinking to take only a half this time, dont dance too much, relax more, drink a cuр of water every hour, go outside club to cool myself down, forget about smoking on that night to рut less рressure on my heart. Also Im not gonna рay attention to my heart at all to avoid anxiety.
    3. Is alcohol and XTC a really bad idea? Alcohol usually takes my anxiety away and рuts me into a right mind setting, so I was thinking a few beers before rolling and during come uр would be a good idea?
    4. Is it ok to take benzos when high on MDMA? If it goes bad and I start losing control over my anxiety and fear, is it safe to take benzos while on MDMA? Also how much? I got quite high tolerance, can handle 50 mg Valium with 1 litre of beer easy and will barely feel much (I know alco and benzos is a very dangerous combo and can be deadly, so my advice is to never mix benzos and alcohol).

    Thanks in advance for all your help

    Would you be able to roll in your house or a friends house unseated of a club? It’s a lot calmer and in my opinion a better experience and you don’t need to be dancing constantly as you are worried about your heart rate. If you think a couple of beers will help your anxiety then go for it just don’t get drunk as it takes away from the experience.

    It depends. I've taken benzos and popped a bean before I went to sleep, and I bursted out of sleep feeling my whole body pulsing. It was honestly the greatest feeling. Other times I feel like it dampened the effect and took some of the high away.

    As for the alcohol, I would try to avoid it. But it can help with the anxiety like you are saying.

    The only thing that makes me nervous is that you've said you had a psychotic episode from weed. I'm not saying anything about you, but it is somewhat worrisome. Also, about saying you are worried about having a heart attack while rolling, I think you need to start with the mindset first. Honestly, the best way to do it is tell yourself to not give a f**k. Just keep telling yourself you will be fine. Notice how you said when you were drunk you didn't care about the consequences. That is the mindset you need to have, and I am really not meaning to offer irresponsible advice.

    The only problem with MDMA and alcohol is that you need to stay hydrated. Stay hydrated and don't over do it on the water. Just drink a reasonable amount of water but don't overdo it. MDMA can increase thirst. You may start sweating a lot depending depending on the dosage. And also, please make sure it is clean stuff. You really need to test it. A lot of pills contain a mixture of garbage these days. Please get it tested.

    I hate to tell you but to me it sounds as if you should stay away from drugs all-together. Your body obviously does not like them which BTW there is nothing wrong with that.
    Taking half a pill will be a waste and benzos will kill the MDMA high so whats the point?
    Just my 2 cents.

    1. Weed is a very well known trigger for psychotic episodes, if you're prone to them. MDMA a bit less but it is still an amphetamine and it has a small chance of causing the same. I think if you keep your dose on the low side you'll be okay but that is very hard to predict with drugs. Follow your intu?tion, if it doesn't feel right, don't do it. Also, I would avoid amphetamine (speed), meth, coke and the likes, those have a much greater risk of triggering an episode. Certainly speed and meth. I've got a few friends from way back when that fucked themselves up pretty good with speed and coke. And after the episodes started, every time they did speed or coke again it was a guaranteed triggered episode. Weed as well
    2. Maybe try rolling at home with good friends? This at first doesn't seem like a good idea, MDMA is known as a party drug. But I have to say, for me, and I've been rolling for a looooooong time, I prefer home rolls over party rolls by a big margin. They are magical with the right people and the right music. The drug is not called an empathogen for nothing and very loud environments aren't as conducive for that empathy as a relaxed and quieter environment is. Not that you don't have empathy at parties, you do, but in my experience it's much much more pronounced in a quiet setting
    3. It is when you roll when you're drunk. A few beers won't hurt, might even calm the nerves a bit, but not more than that. I have a mate that gets mad anxiety when the roll is kicking in and he always drinks a few beers beforehand until he feels the effects a tiny bit (like 2-3 beers) and then stops half an hour before the roll. This relaxes the nerves a bit and by the time the roll kicks in properly he's sober again or almost sober
    4. I would not advise this. I have no personal experience with this except for after a roll but the stories I've heard are often negative, going from lessened effects to a full blackout with hallucinations (see here for example

    If you have more questions don't hesitate to ask

    I'm not sure.

    I used to roll fairly regularly for a couple of years with some like minded friends.

    My habit was about one roll a week or so. I never took more than 3 pills, and I preferred to stop at two. I used to take halves if that is any help.

    The thing about anxiety/psychotic paranoid episodes, is that I used to get those from time to time over the years, regardless of set and setting.

    I would try not to dose so heavily with the weed in that case. Sometimes less really is more.

    Rolling in a home setting is definitely more fun than going out to an event where a lot of people are going to be using different substances.

    Ended up rolling 2 nights in a raw lol
    1st night it was really strong and very obvious when it kicked in. No anxiety and my HR was fine. The 2nd night the effect not so strong... Will take a good break inbetween now.

    Is there any cross tolerance between MDMA and lyrica? I thought they both work on serotonin receptors.. So if I rolled for 2 days and then take lyrica on 3rd day, will I get any effect and is it safe to take lyrica on MDMA hangover?
