    I have heard alot of people complain about the xtc come down but I have always found it very good. The day after xtc is always so relaxing. Has anyone elce had this effect?

    I've rarely had a rough day after a pill. It's the 'Tuesday' syndrome that gets me - whether I have to function or not, the long, dark teatime of the soul will invariably hit 3 days after a sesh, and I know I'm not alone in this...

    Yeah I usually get alright come downs. The next day does seem pretty relaxed and I'm usualy in a good mood, especially when I think about the night before.

    I usually a nice comedown, but I like to smoke some cannabis it seems
    to smoth everything out and keep me on top. Though when I took several
    pills a night I could feel very low in the middle of the week but
    taking 5htp/serotonin seems to help that.

    Fucking spot on. I am so mellow, and just grinning on the inside when I think about the night before.



    In all truthfulness, on more than one occasion, I have said to the
    people I have been with "God, I'm looking forward to tomorow", because
    I do, utterly [​IMG]

    Wow,



    I guess I'm the odd chick out...I find the comedown from most street E
    pretty harsh, especially if it's dirty shit, cut with speed or
    crystal. Pure MDMA is a breeze to come off- in fact, it usually
    gives me a glow for days. It's just so hard to find here in
    Toronto.



    I've heard if you take an SSRI antidepressant the morning after, the
    'crash' will be muted somewhat. Weed seems to help...sometimes I
    swear if I smoke a joint when my E buzz is starting to wear off, it can
    bring me back to a higher state of consciousness.



    Has anyone else found that weed can prolong the E buzz? White Cross/ephedrine pills can too.

    Yeah, the first time I rolled and was sketching the day after, my friend offered me some pot. I said I didn't want it, but she replied "Yes, you really do". Man, pot blasts you right back up there. For me anyway :)

    And Micklemouse, you're not alone on the tuesday syndrome... I've had depression last for a week after a roll. That sucked [​IMG]

    5htp, a strong Bvitamin complex, good diet, and not taking E too often help a lot in avoiding the prolonged crash, I've found(it can take 4-8 weeks to replenish serotonin). As does a slow but steady Gin session after the party, but be careful not to dehydrate if boozing on pills! Vodka and orange is rather fine too...

    Weed certainly works, as do shrooms in small amounts, little lines of pill, and ket, if you're feeling really dirty, can be a lot of fun(again in small doses- watch out for those holes kittlings!)!

    The day after is what I have heard called the Afterglow. And that word is exactly what I would use to describe the feeling. Just all warm and cozy. Relaxed and tired, but not tired enough to go to sleep. Thinking about the night before with this stupid look on my face. Ahhhhh the afterglow![​IMG]


    Now my wife on the other hand. She is absolutely miserable the day after. No cuddling, kissing, sex![​IMG]She just wants to be left alone.

    take 5htp before going out and some after you get back in and it kicks out the comedown to a certain extent and keeps your serotonin levels up. this aint a reason to go dropping like a fool tho - its only a significiant enough amount to keep ya brain from crashin!

    Good to see 5-htp getting the recognition it deserves. Its a
    miracle pill for us guys. And you might even meet a few
    closet-MDMA-users in Holland and Barrett who know EXACTLY why you are
    buying 5-htp[​IMG]

    5-htp turns into serotonin in your brain.



    It is often sold as:</span>

    A 'diet' aid - as serotonin regulates your hunger

    A 'sleep' aid - as serotonin regulates your sleep

    A mild 'anti-depressant' - as, as we all know</span>, serotonin regulates your mood.

    5ht is serotonin, therefore 5htp is the processing agent that creates serotonin.


    however, dont think that it will start working straight away; you have to take it so that there is enough in your body for it to actually start doing anything; like antibiotics or something like that.


    it breaks crashes into mild come downs and mild come downs into no come down really. you tend to feel happier where before you would have felt depressed after come down for the reasons as stated by megalev!


    its £14.99 from holland and barret

    Much cheaper source for the UK :

    http://www.discountsupplements.co.uk/shop/productinfo.asp? product=27

    300 x 50mg for £30.



    I think you get 75 x 50mg for £15 at Holland & Barrett (although
    you can pick up some multivitamin tablets whilst your in there, which
    is a good shout if you're planning on dropping often [​IMG])



    Oh, and Vitamin B gets the 5htp more active, quicker (The Holland &
    Barret stuff comes with a small dose of Vitamin B in it).. Otherwise,
    you can always have some Marmite on Toast [​IMG]

    There is an ongoing discussion about 5-htp supplements and vitamin B6.

    It is true that for the 5-htp -&gt; 5-ht reaction you need vitamin B6.

    However this reaction can also occur in the liver. If there is enough vitamin B6 present it is possible that all 5-htp is converted to 5-ht in the liver before it can reach the brain. 5-ht (serotonin) cannot pass the blood brain barrier so it is wasted.

    Thats why i take a combination of 5-htp and l_tryptophan.
    The reaction l_tryptophan -&gt; 5-htp can only take place in the brain. That way the 5-ht formed can actually be used at the right place.

    Just have to say, balls to Holland and Barrett, for no other reason than that they are vastly over priced, big business! Go to your local health food shop, and ask for Hydroxytryptophan(L-5 HTP). It should be a lot cheaper and you'll have the lovely karmic glow that comes from supporting local business! [​IMG]
