Etizolam is a popular antidepressant that is also known as etilaam or etizest. It is usually prescribed by a doctor or GPs as a remedy for anxiety and also to induce sleep. Etizolam effects are well observed when taken under physician’s observation and in proper dosage.

Etizolam is a short-acting drug that produces hypnosis and has an anxiolytic effect on the users.

In this article, we are going to be looking at how long the effects of Etizolam last.

Etizolam dosage

The standard dosage for etizolam is 1 to 2 mg. It can either be taken sublingually or orally. In some cases, a doctor might recommend a light dosage, and this is usually between 0.5 to 1 mg, while a strong dosage ranges from two to five milligram. If a dosage is over five milligrams, it is considered as heavy and is likely to have a serious health effect.


Etizolam effects last between 5 to 7 hours. But the initial effect is felt after twenty to thirty minutes of administration.
As mentioned earlier, the standard dosage for etizolam is 1 to 2 mg. The peak effect of etizolam is experiencing about 2 to 3 hours after taking it.

Reports from etizolam users show that when a large dose of etizolam is taken, the peak time is going to be very brief, sometimes only lasting for about twenty-five minutes, but the overall effects last for a whole lot longer.
It is going to take about 1to 3 hours before some of the effects of etizolam to die down. But in some cases, it can take up to twenty-four hours for the entire etizolam effects to wear off.

Using Etizolam

People who use etizolam usually experience calming effects or a feeling of euphoria when they take a standard dosage. It helps to relax tension in the nerves. Some users have compared the feeling they had after taking Etizolam to that of alcohol and Xanax.

Many who have used etizolam, have also reported that they were better able to fall asleep. Users who had insomnia was able to experience the calming effect of etizolam. Below are some effects you are likely to experience when you take etizolam.

1. Increased libido
2. Increased appetite
3. Muscle relaxation
4. Low anxiety level
5. Ego inflation

As wonderful as etizolam may be, there are some negative effects associated with it. Below are some of them

1. Memory loss
2. Extreme sedation
3. Loss of consciousness
4. Erectile dysfunction
5. Cognitive dysfunction
6. Motor control loss
7. Difficulty in breathing
8. Addiction
9. Amnesia
10. Irritability
11. Sleepiness

Getting of etizolam effects

Etizolam is a very addictive substance. So, if you use it on a regular basis, you are likely to become addicted to it.
Getting off etizolam can be difficult because it can result in some severe withdrawal symptoms. Before you start using etizolam, do well to inform your doctor so that he can provide you with advice with regards to dosage and other issues.

Finally, do not drive or take on any activity that requires concentration after you have taken etizolam. Also, do not mix it with other substances.

    It is in my opinion that thenonitrozolodiazepam, aka: Etizolam may be benifical in helping a benzodiazepine addicted person reduce their tolerance to benzodiazepines or even get off benzos. My theory is as follows. Because etizolam does not have the benzene ring fused to the diazepam it is NOT a benzo. Yet works in a simaler manner, therefor a benzodiazepine addicted person will not experience withdraw from benzos when dosed with etizolam. This in theory should allow the benzo addicted person to not require benzodiazepines while taking etizolam. Therefore tolerance to standard benzodiazepines should drop while taking etizolam and due to etizolam’s rare ability to not cause an increased tolerance over time, (some evidence even suggests that etizolam has a “reversed tolerance”), the benzodiazepine addicted person, in theory, should be able to discontinue benzodiazepines completely. Etizolam itself is addictive as well, so once tolerance for benzodiazepines drops to the point of working at a standard dose, the benzodiazepine addicted person can then slowly decrease the dosage of etizolam until no withdraw effects are felt. Due to the fact that the benzodiazepine addicted person has not been taking etizolam as long and tolerance doesn’t increase, in theory, it should be easier to taper off Etizolam. At this point the benzodiazepine addicted person will not need either drug anymore. If done correctly I feel this could be a good drug to cure a benzodiazepine addicted person comfortably.
    I would love to see some controlled studies done to benzodiazepine addicted patients in this manner.
