    Coming down is terrible. I hate it. It is enough to put you off taking pills but I always do them again. In my opinion it is worse than a hang over. You just feel really bad. I am always dehydrated and end up regretting what i did the night before. I get really paranoid. You don't want to talk to anybody. You have to ask yourself is it worth taking pills if you get a come down?

    Yea, everyone is different though. Im quite lucky with come-downs from pills. I just feel tired and a bit irritable but nothing major. It can make u have cold sweats, head-aches shakiness bit similar to a hang-over as was said b4.
    U gotta remeber when the come-downs out-way the good-times is it really worth doing it at all.

    As soon as i feel like im begining to come down i get staight home to my own bed i get myself as big bottle of water and a good mag i put on a cd that wud remond me of what a good nite i just had
    Then try and stay awake as long as i can (i find the longer its bin since u started cumin down the worse you feel) then i go to sleep and sleep through the worst bit (cop out!!).
    I usually wake up with a sore neck and sometimes a slight headache but thats about it really.If i do more than 4 (not all that often) thats when i feel the worst.

    On a comedown you should try and eat.
    Your appitite may be non-existant, but it will help you recover.

    >Brush your teeth - this improves the taste of your mouth. I usually do this once an hour if I've got a toothbrush to hand.
    >Drink water or juice to help rehydrate your body.
    >Marmite and Bananas help replace the seritonin you used up in you body. I always force down plenty of marmite toast with a glass of orange juice.
    >Don't drink alcohol, it will just further dehydrate you.
    >Above all sleep is probably the best soloution to a come down.

    I don't reckon come downs are as bad as hangovers 'cause you don't feel physically sick nor do you have such a head ache. I just feel monged right out.

    Marmite and Bananas help replace the seritonin you used up in you body. I always force down plenty of marmite toast with a glass of orange juice.

    When does Yeast Extract (Marmite) and beta goodness (as contained in Banana's) or Vitamin C (Oranges) ever help you replace seritone lost during an ecstasy session?

    They have absolutly nothing to do with the bodies regeneration of seritone, they may well replace vitamins and minerals lost during dancing, but other than that.. thats it.

    Seritone for one is regenerated and replaced back to full storage over a two week period, this is done by the body producing a chemical called 5-HTP which inturn produces seritone. The only way you can replace depleated stocks is by taking a 5-htp supplement.

    These can be purchased from most health shops at approx:

    5-HTP - 50mg - 30 Tablets - £14.99

    cheers boys. so wot happens is that you feel buzzin about 30 minutes after u have taken them then you get the come down the next day? cheers.

    when i'm on a comedown i tend to do the same as Ezwicked i stay awake untill im really sleepy then sleep the worst of it off.

    I find that the more i lie down the worse i feel so i tend to make myself get up and have a shower ,put some clean clothes on , get something to eat and chat to a mate.

    the chatting to a mate is really important to my recovery coz i'd go mad other wise

    as for what I feel like I just feel really spaced and cant moove kinda detatched from reality, thats why its good to have a mate to chat to.

    I have heard and read this a number of times from different sources. I may not have proof but in this years Mixmags drug issue it had a whole article on remedys for comedowns and there were a number of ordinary foods along with the different supliments you can get from health shops.

    Do you think I'd write it if I had made it up or thought it was bullshit. I've read that bananas especially help in the replenishment of seritonin. I'm not sure if it contains somthing that stimulates regeneration or actually contains seretonin it dosn't say in the article.
    I believe it and even if you don't it can only be a good thing to eat on a comedown to sort you out.

    The reason why its a remedy is that it replaces vitimins and minerals lost on a session, in the same way that drinking orange juice on the morning of a hangover can help...
    The Mixmag article was basically discussing ways in which to replenish all body stores lost whilst being intoxicated, which is a good thing because people are so ill-informed about drugs that this can only help widern knowledge and lead to people being more sensible and safer with their drug use. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    i think hangovers are the worst feeling but it isn't as bad as being pissed i don't get comedowns.
