(iWIDK by Aaron Lanton) - A new study has made headlines in the medical community by using a less potent street drug to treat patients.
In the United States, new research is suggesting that MDMA, also known as ecstasy, might be a viable treatment for people suffering with post traumatic stress disorder.
According to KSDK 5, a recent study shows that 14 out of 19 patients who took ecstasy to relax their struggles with PTSD have shown dramatic improvements.
Proponents believe that the results look promising, but further research is required to ensure the method works on a larger scale.
However, researchers continue to emphasize that pure MDMA, street ecstasy, is not safe.
