Ecstasy pill. Man balancing a pill of the illegal drug ecstasy on his finger. Ecstasy, or 3, 4-methylene dioxymethamphetamine, gives users a sense of well-being, affection for others and increased energy. Problems associated with its use include dehydration, loss of conscious control and memory and weight loss. Dehydration as a result of ecstasy use may be fatal, although several deaths have occurred due to users overcompensating for this risk and drinking too much water.
