MDMA Approved for Final Stage of Clinical Trials

Victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder may soon be prescribed MDMA to help them overcome the disorder as the drug enters the last stage of trails.

The debilitating effects of this psychological disorder have been sown to be alleviated by the use of ecstacy (MDMA) and the drug is now being put through the final stages of testing.

This report in the New York Times says that the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved the drug for clinical trials in order to bring it one step closer to being widely used as treatment.

The trails are being completed by the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), and will include 200 patients including war veterans and sexual abuse victims.

The final stage, known as Phase 3 clinical trials is the final step before the FDA can allow the drug to be released onto the market. The drug has been given positive results in previous tests, and if these final stages are successful, MDMA could be available for prescription in the next five years.

The drug was given positive reviews by patients compared to other standard therapy methods.

“One of the first things I said when it kicked in was ‘this is what I’ve been looking for,'” Tony Macie, an Iraqi War veteran, said in the below video. “I reconnected with myself and did a lot of internal work, and afterwards, it was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.”

The results so far have showed that a massive 83% of participants in the MDMA trials no longer suffer from PTSD after just two months of treatment.

The researchers are very happy with the feedback they have received about the trials so far.
“We can sometimes see this kind of remarkable improvement in traditional psychotherapy, but it can take years, if it happens at all,” researcher Michael Mithoefer told the Times. “We think it works as a catalyst that speeds the natural healing process.”
