Recreational doses of Etizolam

Unlike prescription doses, reliable information regarding recreational doses is a bit harder to come by.

The Scottish Drugs Forum lists the following dose range in its Information Sheet for Etizolam. They gathered these values from interviewing five Etizolam users. Like all recreational dose figures, the info comes from user testimonials, not rigorous scientific testing.

  • Light: 0.5 mg
  • Common: 1-2 mg
  • Strong: 3–4 mg
  • Heavy: 5 mg

With recreational doses people are advised to begin with the lowest possible dose. Different people have different tolerance and sensitivity to drugs.

What is Etizolam?

Etizolam, which is sold in tablet form under the brand names Etilaam and Etizest, is a short acting “benzo-like” drug of the thienodiazepine class.

It is considered by some to be a research chemical. The status of research chemical or designer drug is given to this drug as it is close in effect to some more tightly controlled drugs, but it evades the law in some jurisdictions due to a finely altered chemical structure.

What are its effects?

Etizolam causes nervous system depression through modulation of GABA neurotransmission. A dose of Etizolam causes sedation and anxiety relief.

This is why it is prescribed in Japan for anxiety and imsomnia.

Etizolam is not commonly prescribed in the USA.

Users of this drug report that Etizolam will put them in a lethargic and sleepy state. It may cause euphoria, memory loss, loss of inhibition and suppressed thinking.

How long does Etizolam last?

The effects of Etizolam are likely to last for 5- 8 hours in total. After taking a tablet, the person will begin to notice effects within the first hour, and sometimes within 15 minutes.

The peak of the sedative and hypnotic effect will occur 1-2 hours after ingestion and reduce slowly for the next 2-3 hours.

After effects of taking this drug may persist for a further 6 – 24 hours.

What are the risks?

Etizolam is considered to have a low toxicity relative to dose.

However, individuals taking Etizolam ought to be careful. It should not be mixed with other depressants. This includes alcohol. Mixing Etizolam and alcohol can be fatal. Both drugs together will overwhelm the body leading to respiratory depression, loss of consciousness and potentially death.

Is Etizolam addictive?

Yes, Etizolam is considered to be both psychologically and physically addictive.

If Etizolam is used daily for a long period of time it may be hard to stop using it. The withdrawal effects are nasty and include a wide range of symptoms including sleep disturbance, anxiety, panic attacks, confusion, palpitations and nausea.

People who wish to stop taking Etizolam must taper their dose down gradually over a period of time. This means gradually reducing the dose week after week, not abruptly. This gives the body, which has become dependent on the drug to function, time to adapt.
