Hello. Im on Pristiq (100mg) for about 3 months. About 42hours ago i went to a party and drank alcohol (i lowered my consume a lot for the past year, but i got a little bit high that night), and took for the first time a pill of ecstasy. I drank a lot of liquids (water, coconut water) during the night so i almost didnt get a hangover, also i didnt feel the ecstasy had a big effect because about 2 or 3 hours later i was feeling sober already. But i still feel today that some parts of my body, and especially my head, is a little itchy, not normal... Is this a common side effect? will it go away and what should i do to make it go away? also, because im taking an antidepressant, what else should i be concerned? Im not planning on taking any drugs again.

Brief Answer:
It will go away on its own!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

These symptoms would go away. The only medication that would make a difference at this time is patience-Time. Eat well, drink much water, get enough rest and exercise regularly.

Alcohol is not a good product for health. You would do yourself much good by reducing how much you drink if you cannot stay away from entirely.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

Detailed Answer:

I generally discourage any use of illicit drugs. Do not be worried about this as long as you stop taking further ecstasy.

I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well.
