A pill, capsule, or powder purporting to be LSD might, in fact, combine any number of ingredients. Laboratory analyses of blood from people admitted to hospitals for LSD emergencies show that in some urban areas, only about 50 percent of the drug samples actually contained LSD. Strychnine, PCP, and amphetamine are common and potentially dangerous additives. Strychnine, for instance, has been used historically as rat poison and can cause seizures and convulsions. Depending on the dose of the drug ingested, these impurities can have serious consequences.

The Health Effects of Hallucinogens who participated in the studies cited above, believe that there are methodological issues with most hallucinogen studies that confuse results. Therefore, before any hallucinogen, or in this case, MDMA, can be proven to be the direct cause of adverse health effects in humans, experts assert that more scientifically rigorous research must be conducted. ) Overall, although the many studies conducted to date on MDMA’s effects on the brain are cause for serious concern, the results remain preliminary and await the validation of further well-designed and comprehensive studies.

This far-reaching influence of serotonin makes it difficult for scientists to pinpoint the origins of LSD’s effect in the brain. Serotonin is generally an inhibitory neurotransmitter. LSD acts like an antagonist; it inhibits, or blocks, the release of serotonin at the receptor, which may cause excitation of other regions of the brain. For example, LSD can deceive the nervous system by acting as a sort of serotonin “imposter” at receptor sites, which signals other parts of the brain that too much serotonin is present.
