The National Drug Intelligence Bureau says there's a worrying trend of drug dealers mixing dangerous substances in illicit pills and selling them as pure ecstasy.

It says testing this year found a large number of suspected ecstasy pills containing fillers ranging from BZP, to methamphetamine and caffeine.

Detective Inspector Stuart Mills says users are getting a more unpredictable and violent reaction than they expect.
