In high doses, MDMA can interfere with the body’s ability to regulate temperature. On occasions, this can lead to a sharp increase in body temperature (hyperthermia), resulting in liver, kidney, or cardiovascular system failure, swelling of the brain, and even death. Furthermore, repeated use of MDMA over a short period of time may lead to potentially harmful concentrations of MDMA within the body due to the complex metabolism of MDMA.
