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.

    Nathan I’m a chemist and you are either the most naive or dumb person in t world or intentionally lying. Yes its not technically a benzodiazepine. But its a full agonist of the benzodiazepine receptors so to suggest that someone addicted to benzodiazepines can stop using it and basicly ween off and no longer be addicted is absolutely ridiculous. Its like saying that heroin will cure morphine addiction. They both activate the very same receptors and therefore cause the very same addiction. Etizolam is a very short acting gaba a full agonist and is one of the most highly addictive as a result. The fact its not technically a benzodiazepine doesnt change a thing. Methadone isnt technically a morphine related drug but is the most addictive of all opiate just The same. I went through almost 3 yearsmof non stop withdrawals after shipping methadone when even heroin or fentanyl only causes up to 7 days of physical withdrawal.
    You shouldnt talk about something you clearly know absolutely nothing about. I’m not dating etizolam is any more addictive or that withdrawals will last any longer then other short acting benzodiazepines like lorazepam. Short acting gaba a full agonist have the shortest withdrawal period but it sure isnt a cure for being addicted to gaba A agonist as it is a gaba A agonist

      hello mark we value your opinion on our blog but could we please refrain from personal attacks when someone is discussing there views or findings.
      We are here to further the study of the chemicals and all informations is valued. You have a lot of good information and would love to hear all you have to say so I don’t want to moderate your blogs.
      Lets keep these friendly and informative for the advancement of all rc chems for there there best use in the world.
      I have yet to delete or change any input that has come from everyone lets keep it that way.

    Mark. I was not suggesting that Etizolam is a cure all for the benzo addicted patient but where tolerance doesn’t easily increase with etizolam and there are reports that etizolam has a possible “reverse tolerenxe” effect, constant dosage increase to achieve the same therapeutic effect with repeated dosages would be needless. This alone would help with lowering a patients tolerence. therefor it is OF MY OPINION that etizolam can replace a benzodiazepine easily, as your right it does full on attach to GABA receptors, thus a benzodiazepine addicted patient will not experience withdraw if switched to an appropriate amount of etizolam, which would be depnding on patients tolerence. I feel that although faster acting the lack of tolerance increase with etizolam makes a long term taper easier, (Further study is obvious that there is a cross tolerance between benzos and etizolam). As , IMHO, Etizolam is easier to taper from. Never said the patient would be “CURED”! THE GABA a and b receptors are still gonna be messed up. But I am suggesting that Etizolam or, even the half as strong but longer lastting descloroetizolam could be an excellent benzo taper drug. Of course this is theory as ingestion studies are not legally allowed. But I have talked to many that feel etizolam replaces their benzo dependence easily and find it easier to taper from the etizolam. Of course the GABA receptors will still need to repair. I fail to see how my educated opinion IS LYING. This is my research and part of it was discovering if there is a cross-tolerence between benzodiazepines and Etizolam. I have discovered there is, and intended to update posts of my research as I study. Regardless I feel this does not rule out my theory that etizolam could be great for tapering from regular benzos, paients would likely function on etizolam better as well, again IN MY OPINION. Also since it illegal for you to Test Etizolam on humans how can you dinfinitly rule out any of my theories that have to do with how a patient would react to my theory research, chemist or not your opinion would be THEORY AS WELL.. However I will agree that there is a cross tolerance.

    Also Mark. Your comparasion stating that it would be “like using heroin to taper off morphine” is very extreme. If Etizolam is such a strong gaba aganists as you say, then id say it compares more like using suboxon to treat morphine addiction, which is actually done. You also inaccurately attacking Etizolam as being much more addictive.than benzos is ludicrous. maybe addictive still but research suggests that Etizolam remains effective at the same dosage even after months without the need to increase dosages. this seems to be a major plus when compared to Ataivan etc. Patients have been known to require up to 10 ativan 2’s a day while badly addicted while the Etizolam patient remains on the same dosage he/she started on and it still works. And would Etizolam be more addictive than oh idk, Triazloam, I doubt it. Perhaps the removal of the benzene group and having it replaced with the Thenionitrozolo group makes little difference with whether it binds to the GABA receptors as benzos do but I believe it has a different overall action as to how these receptors respond to the compound and I believe it to be for the better. Of course my research on how a person responds to Etizolam comes from sources where its a legal prescription drug or legal to ingest then I compared that research to people on benzos here in Canada. So far it looks like Etizolam and derivatives of thineonitrozolo diazepines are promising options as a safer treatment over benzos and possible taper compound in my research.
