Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

MDMA is a drug which has a variety of effects on the nervous system. Strange sensations over the cheek and jaw have been reported as after-effects of using MDMA. Tingling or itching or flushing sensations associated with grinding of teeth, jaw clenching, etc. are indeed common after-effects associated with the use of this drug. These symptoms are usually transient and should subside within a couple of days.

I am 52 years old and have been on Zoloft 50 mill for 3 months and then my psychiatrist added 20 mill of generic adderall. My hair has become dry and I have been losing about 50 or so strands of hair a day. I can tell my hair is thinning and not as soft as it used to be. It tangles a lot and is frizzy?

I am a recovering alcoholic with 7 years sobriety. I started taking through my doctor vyvanse for adult ADHD. He put me on 50 mg but it wasn't helping much so I upped my dose by .25 mg for two weeks. I asked to increase my dose to 70 which is working great. My question is did I relapse since I took more than what my doctor initially prescribed?
Thank you for your response.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?
