There are some pretty serious side effects to MDMA.
The long term side effects as documented in numerous studies are pretty profound. The biggest in my opinion being the remodelling of your neurons, more specifically the Axons which are used as "highways" to transfer electrical impulses and signals through your central nervous system.

Mind you, these results were for people who have ingested more than 50 MDMA caps over their lifetime.

I've read eight studies so far. And albeit the short term side effects aren't that profound (nausea, vomiting , depression, etc). Taking MDMA once in awhile doesn't seem to be a big deal. It's only when you do a lot there will be differences.

So MDMA is definitely not one of the safest drugs out there.
You have a source? I'm interested, since I would qualify for over 50 through my lifetime.

I remember a study like that but the results were pretty inconclusive. For example, they had used poly drug users for data.

Here's a source for my statement:

“Drug harms in the U.K.: a multi-criteria decision analysis,“ The Lancet, Volume 376, Issue 9752, Pages 1558 - 1565, November 6, 2010.
Drug harms in the UK: a multicriteria decision analysis : The Lancet

I'm not trying to claim there are no risks, I said safer than most other drugs. Not safer than no drugs at all.

Death or hospitalization due to taking MDMA is, as I said, almost unheard of. The few are usually due to dehydration or hypothermia.

Langley teen dies after taking ecstasy - News1130

Quote:
LANGLEY (NEWS1130) - A 16-year-old Langley boy is dead after taking ecstasy on the weekend.

Lisa Lapointe with the BC Coroners Service says he was rushed to hospital just a few hours after taking the drug.

"It was in an unoccupied home in Langley. When his friends heard him collapse he investigated, they found him unresponsive," she says. "They called 911 and he was rushed to hospital by ambulance, but he didn't survive."

Police are investigating whether the teen's friends were also taking the pills.

This is the third ecstasy-related death this year. Police and the Coroners Service have issued repeated warnings to the public about the illicit drug, which is often cut with a variety of dangerous chemicals.

Last week the Coroners Service announced it will start screening in all ecstasy-related autopsies for the rare chemical PMMA (paramethoxy-metamphetamine), which has been linked to five ecstasy-related deaths in BC in the last six months.

But Lapointe stresses there have also been plenty of ecstasy fatalities where PMMA was not present.

"According to our toxicologist, who has reviewed all these findings extensively, there is no safe dose," she says, "because it's so dependent on the individual and what else they might be taking, or their underlying health conditions. There are just so many risk factors."

Lapointe adds that the spike in recent deaths could be turning into disturbing trend.

"We've had three deaths in the first two weeks of this year," she says. "If this carries on, we will see a significant increase in the number of people dying after taking ecstasy."
