I haven't taken any drugs for 6 years. But I went through a period of about 7-8 months of intermittent use of MDMA before this. Some doses were high. I did take other drugs at the time.
I have had mental health problems since childhood: My diagnosis is complex trauma and I've experienced periods of depression although this has been under control for a while now. I take no medication.
The types of problems I encountered at the time: Concentration problems, loss of short term memory. These have gone now to an extent but there's no way to measure before and after.
Ok thanks. One concern I had was that my natural serotonin levels may have decreased. Which can be a cause of mood disorders and depression.
Also again I'm not sure if it was due to drug use but I feared my comprehension speed of written text might have been affected long term.
Is there any way to measure whether my serotonin levels are natural compared to other people who haven't used drugs?
