Almost everyone has struggled with sleeplessness, anxiety, or panic at some point. For some, the conditions may be quite severe. Sleep is not just elusive; it is non-existent. The anxiety is paralyzing, the panic is shattering, and daily life could very well be ruined. If you’re in this situation, you might look for the right kind of medication that can treat these problems and find something called etizolam.
Technically speaking Etizolam is a benzodiazepine analog, marketed in several countries around the world under various brand names. To name a few, Etilaam, Etizex and Etizest have been approved and distributed as research chemical alternate version of commonly prescribed Benzodiazepines.
Etizolam is used as medicine in Japan and India, to treat anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks, but it not licensed as a medicine in the UK.
Etizolam’s main difference is within its ability to perform as an extremely short-acting and rapidly metabolized sedative/hypnotic. Some have touted Etizolam as belonging to a new generation of the compound, with uniquely differentiating properties of being rapidly and easily oxidized, leading to a much lower risk of accumulation even with prolonged use.
What are the effects of Etizolam?
Etizolam has a range of possible effects:
- They slow the brain and body down.
- They make the user feel calm and relaxed and can help people get to sleep.
- They help to stop fits.
- Some cause short-term memory loss.
The side effects of etizolam
- shallow breathing
- loss of coordination
- big doses can make a user forgetful and make them overly sleepy
Side effects are said to be mild or moderate, depending on the therapeutic dose given for specific conditions; the most common effect of etizolam is sleepiness during daytime hours. The dosage tends to be carefully monitored because of the risk of a fatal overdose. This drug is typically reserved for short-term use, due to its chemical similarity to the benzodiazepines. The long-term effects of benzodiazepine medications can include disturbing nighttime dreams, memory loss, hostile behavior, and physical addiction. People who abruptly stop taking benzodiazepines tend to experience severe withdrawal symptoms, sometimes requiring hospitalization.
Benzodiazepines can have varied therapeutic effects, depending on the dosage of the particular drug. These medications tend to be sedating at low doses, whereas higher doses can have anxiolytic or hypnotic effects. In some medical cases, they can also be used to prevent seizures. Diazepam and alprazolam are two of the most common benzodiazepines to be obtained illegally for recreational use. Illicit users of cocaine or narcotic medications are said to be more likely to also abuse benzodiazepine drugs.
