    smoke a bit of weed and drink a bit of vodka. sleep. next day smoke some more weed and drink some more vodka. if you have a low tolerance, the next day should be nice if you get a few spliffs and a few drinks inside you, it usually is for me...

    use 5htp - postloading with it about thirty minutes after effects of e are wearing off is best time. take one n then another about an hour later. it calms the come down and stops you from crashing. also, although most people can't face eating, try and force something down (preferably something fruit or fruitbased, or protein). not only does it fill your stomach but it replaces nutrients etc that e has taken out of you, thus slowing down and calming the come down effects.


    must say tho that 5htp doesn't work for everybody but is readily available from holland&barret in uk or a similar herbal kinda place in other countries. try the net, usually the best source.


    also, while coming down try and be with friends or a large group of people as this will keep you from thinking to yourself and 'climbing into your thoughts'. the last thing you want to do is think too deeply as this brings on comedown and exacerbates it. also, avoid vitamin c (especially in OJ) as this makes you come down and heightens the feelings of come down as it shortens the time it takes.


    try lowering your dosage also. if you haven't got a high tolerance level, which it doesn't sound like you have then lower the dosage and spread the pills out further throughout the night, thus not coming down from 'as high up' as it were.

    yeah i forgot to mention food - eat as much as you can, i know it doesnt feel like you can handle food when you come down, but maybe try a banana or an orange or something. and next day make sure you force yourself to eat, itll do you good.

    Dont hate your comedown. look at it as something to look foward too , when you can relax. sounds wierd , but it works.


    on the next day if you depressed listen to some good music u realy like and drink. drinking on a comedown really canes me , i think the E kinda kicks back and makes you happy again.

    personally, I don't think adding more drugs is gonna help you, not to mention it's not healthy. Comedowns happen on most drugs, it's just the way it is. The highs are high, the lows are low...if you can't handle it, don't do it.

    if you can ease the lows and have a good time though, then why not? theres something really special about having a few pints with your mates on a comedown, its a much different feeling to just having a few pints any other time. the 'day after' to me is often a part of the whole experience, and the e can still affect you slightly too if you havent much of a tolerance...

    Take Prozac ad think the following thoughts:


    You're with friends and you're on drugs - that's good times


    Those fluttery come-down feelings in your guts actually feel kinda cool


    Come-downs are for idiots who can't handle their own emotions

    Mine is a little different...I get really pissed off. Every little thing annoys me. Also, I have this uneasy feeling, like, I wanna do something, but I wanna just sit there. I wanna listen to music, but I want it to be quiet. There is just no winning. I'm also kinda depressed, and it usually takes me 3-7 days to feel normal again.

    I don't come down any more. It's a matter of choice.How I do it is difficult to explain like this, but I can do it to other people around me too. It involves saying really abstract nonsensical things and claiming that they're the secret of the universe, laughing like mad, making animal noises and generally goin off the wall. It's impossible to come down if you're doing this.I call this a technique to not come down; some would call it amphetamine psychosis. But trust me, amphetamine psychosis is loadsa fun.


    When you take pills, you never really come down, not fully, you'll always be a little bit up,for the rest of your life.


    More mundane suggestions would be food, benzodiazepines, weed, salvia and especially SSRIs like Prozac.

    for immediate relief take your vitamins, especially C, and Alpha Lipoic Acid, eat or drink some protein, than pop a valume or another muscular relaxen. It also helps slow down your body so you wont be burning up. If you can take a Prozac and some 5htp (but only after you have come completely down, if not it might just squeeze that last of the serotonin out of your brain.) some 5 htp are coated as to bypass the stomach and more of it will hit your brain. Get some sleep and chill out a bit.

    if ive gone out on the friday night, then saturday (the day after) ill feel extreme tiredness, lethargy, especially in my brain - i often find myself sitting for 5 minutes trying to make my mind up on something trivial, like whether to listen to bob dylan or pick floyd. but a little bit of weed or a glass of vodka and i feel great, i mean really great, if i have a spliff ill be loved up again, that kinda thing.


    the sunday will be a very slow day, very tired again, similar to saturday except not as enjoyable.


    the rest of the week varies, i get tuesday blues but not always on a tuesday. ill be really tired all week, very hungry, then 'something' will happen to trigger the tuesday blues. its usually something silly like not having enough sleep then having a shit morning at work, and my mind will go round and round in circles covering the same few stupid thoughts over and over again. the day after this happens im usually pretty much ok again.Edited by: billyloner

    [​IMG] UGh. The E comedown. For me, it's awful: at least a full day of terrible restlessness, mild anxiety, irritability and sadness.
    I also get odd periods of hyperventilation (almost spastic breathing), twitching, shaking and my hands & feet are cold and clammy.
    I rolled for the first time in several months last Saturday, and by the time dawn came, I was dreading the inevitable. And the inevitable did indeed come around.

    I came to this thread curious for some come-down coping ideas.

    The only thing I did that seemed to help yesterday just slightly was lots and lots of self-talk ("you're ok, just ride it out, this will pass & you'll feel better soon," etc). Meanwhile, I just curled in a ball on the couch and watched comforting tv and movies to pass the time. Also got some yummy food even tho the last thing I wanted to do was eat.
    Probably not very helpful to your question, but at least you know you're not alone in hating the come-down.

    Btw- what is 5htp??

    its a precursor to serotonin, often used as a natural anti-depressant i think. buy it from a health store or on the internet. can also help you sleep too. its probably very expensive though - it is over here.

    As for the Vitamin C thing, I has always found that to be a HUGE help.
    I found these packets in a local health store called Emer'gen-C and
    contain 1 gram of vitamin C, along with like 32 other good vitamin
    supplements... great for hangovers of any kind. I just put it in a shot
    glass with a little water and take the whole thing at once. (your
    supposed to put it into a glass and drink it like a soda... it tastes
    like shit if you do that[​IMG]) 2 or 3 of these packets, and you will be more then repleneshed, vitamin-wise.



    Also, any sort of food will help you regain energy and become less
    hungover. You may not feel up to eating, but you should do so anyways.
    There is nothing worse then being really tired while hungover. It makes
    the effects much worse.



    The only other advice i can offer is to hang out with some good friends
    and talk or watch a movie or something- most of an ex hangover is
    mental, so this will help you forget your pain and actually enjoy
    yourself.



    So just take it easy... and just "chill"



    Peace

    The trick to coming down on ecstasy is to dose Piracetam (or
    Aniracetam) with the E. It'll make the rolls last longer, be smoother,
    more spiritual, and it makes the come down a joy instead of a pain.
    I've also heard that many people who felt that E no longer worked for
    them have had the magic restored by dosing piracetam with it.



    Unfortunately you must order it from overseas because it isn't available in the United States from what I know.

    I find if you drink some strong coffee (a few cups) it makes the comedown a lot smoother, it may stop you going to sleep but at least it stops you hitting that awfull point where you dont know what to do with yourself.
