Under all prevailing conditions MDMA is not recommended

Hi, there is not much literature on this, and have heard of few patients who have deteriorated after taking MDMA on mesalamine

Any doctor would refrain from advising MDMA or any similar product

Hope this helps

I had a heat stroke 10 years ago. As a result I was disabled for several years with Autonomic Dysfunction and severe heat intolerance. The symptoms eventually went away and I returned to work and exercising on a normal basis. Unfortunately, this summer the symptoms have come back after an overexposure to the heat while exercising. I don’t think that I had another heat stroke as I didn’t have a major event that sent me to the ER. It felt more like heat stress at the time but I am not sure. Could this all just be a chemical imbalance? It seems that if it was from the result of brain or nerve damage that I wouldn’t have recovered from it the first time. What do you think? Who specializes in this? Finding a doctor who can diagnose me is difficult. I am a 38 year old male.

Our friend has stage 4 tonsil cancer. he went by way of alternative treatment and did radiation and hyperthermia treatment. This started in Fall of 2009. It worked until February of this year. He was given a high dose of steroids that made him very ill. While he was being weaned off the steroids for two months his tumor markers went up. He is stage four and can't eat or drink. He is in Los Angeles and just wanted to know where to go from here. They are looking at taking him to City of Hope. Thank you for your time.
