MDMA is a potent releaser and/or reuptake inhibitor of presynaptic serotonin (5-HT), dopamine (DA), and norepinephrine (NE). These actions result from the interaction of MDMA with the membrane transporters involved in neurotransmitter reuptake and vesicular storage systems.
People sometimes refer to dopamine and serotonin as the “happy hormones” due to the roles they play in regulating mood and emotion.
