Etizolam vs Xanax

What is Etizolam?

Etizolam is considered by many to be a research chemical with effects similar to benzodiazepine drugs like Xanax (alprazolam) or Valium (diazepam).

Research chemical is another term for designer drugs. These are drugs that produce effects similar to tightly controlled drugs, but avoid legislation due to slight differences in chemical structure. This allows these drugs to be sold online in a quasi legal fashion. Etizolam may not strictly fall in to this category as it is a licensed human medicine in several countries including Japan and Italy.

What are the common effects shared by both Xanax and Etizolam?

Desirable Effects

Both Xanax and Etizolam produce sedation, muscle relaxation and lowering of anxiety.

Other shared effects

Both of these drugs also produce a range of effects which may or may not be desirable depending on the person.

In higher doses both of these drugs can slow or impair thinking. They can lead to lowering of inhibitions, loss of memory and suppression of emotion.

With both drugs it is noted that users may redose compulsively. A sense of euphoria may accompany the use of both Xanax and Etizolam in some.

Withdrawal Effects

Both Etizolam and Xanax if used consistently over a period of 6 weeks or more, can have very nasty withdrawal effects.

The harsh withdrawal from these drugs is known within medicine as benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. Even though chemically Etizolam is not a benzodiazepine, it does produce these same withdrawal effects.

These effects are often identical, or worse than, the symptoms for which the medicine was originally prescribed. They include:

  • Loss of sleep and disturbance of sleep
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Sweating
  • Difficulty concentrating, confusion, and cognitive impairment
  • Muscle soreness
  • Heart palpitations

These withdrawal effects are considered by some to be worse that the withdrawal from opiate drugs like morphine. The severity of the effects does not reduce predictably with time, but tends to wax and wane over a protracted time period.

For this reason it is advised that individuals slowly reduce the dose of the Xanax or Etizolam they take, rather than stop abruptly. This can help to mitigate the hellish withdrawal.

Another common sense strategy is only to use these drugs over a short period of time if possible. This does require self discipline however as both Xanax and Etizolam are known to be highly addictive.

Comparison of online reports

Xanax is reported by a substantial proportion of users to produce a pleasant “body high” at higher doses. This physical euphoria is said to be missing from Etizolam.

Others report that Etizolam produces a cognitive euphoria that is missing from Xanax.

These conflicting reports of recreational of these compounds make it hard to give a definitive answer to which produces more of a “high”.

Duration and strength

Both Xanax and Etizolam are short acting anxiety relieving drugs with Etizolam having a slightly longer effect.

Effects for Xanax peak two hours after ingestion and wear off after 4 hours.

For Etizolam, oral doses begin to take effect after an hour and peak in intensity at the 3 or 4 hour mark. Overall duration is in the 6 -8 hour range.

They are considered roughly equipotent, with a common dosage for both being 1 -2 mg, and a heavy dose considered to be 5 mg and above.
