MDMA works better than antidepressants

Latest Trials Confirm the Benefits of MDMA – the Drug in Ecstasy – for Treating PTSD

Plus, the effects are long-lasting!

A recent analysis found that, on average, patients who received MDMA-assisted therapy experienced a 22 point reduction in PTSD scores, whereas daily antidepressants only reduced scores by 6 to 14 points. 

One year after receiving the treatments, patients still reported benefits:

  • 84% reported improved feelings of well-being
  • 71% had fewer nightmares
  • 69% had less anxiety
  • 66% had improved sleep

Why is it so effective? MDMA reduces feelings of intense anxiety, allowing patients to open up and work through traumatic memories without fear.
