Etizolam is legal to prescribe in India, Italy and Japan. It has not been approved by regulating agencies in other countries for human consumption and is not legal to purchase for ingestion in any other country. In the countries where it is legal, the drug has been researched to determine its side effects on humans.
As a rule, etizolam is used to treat anxiety, depression, mood disorders, seizure disorders and some musculoskeletal disorders. Since the drug causes a euphoric feeling and is prone to tolerance, dependency from abuse is a possibility. Some of the side effects noted in studies on humans were related to cases where subjects needed increased doses because of a built-up tolerance. Although etizolam is similar in composition and effects to benzodiazepines, it is actually a thienodiazepine. Withdrawal is not usually as severe as benzodiazepine withdrawal with dependency. However, withdrawal can come with unpleasant side effects that are similar to benzodiazepine withdrawal.
Etizolam Effects Of Withdrawal
If etizolam is abused, the potential effects of withdrawal can include seizures. This is especially true in countries where doctors prescribe the drug to treat seizures and a patient suddenly stops treatment. In cases of increased doses due to dependency, withdrawal symptoms after suddenly stopping the drug include anxiety, depression, irritability, muscle pain, headaches and insomnia. Physicians usually prescribe it in 0.5mg or 1mg doses to avoid dependency. In studies, patients who took higher doses in hopes of increasing the drug’s effects were the most likely to try to quit taking the drug suddenly and experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. These could last from a day to several weeks depending on the dosage and length of abuse. When patients want to stop taking the drug, doctors suggest a prescription plan for them to taper off slowly and avoid withdrawal symptoms.
Common Etizolam Side Effects
In the three countries where the drug is legal for doctors to prescribe, one of the biggest concerns is the risk of abuse and addiction. This is why the drug is recommended in low doses, and patients are often advised not to drive or operate heavy machinery while taking etizolam. Some of the common side effects of the drug include:
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of coordination
- Loss of libido
Rare Etizolam Side Effects
Rare side effects may be present in people who have an intolerance to the drug or in those who have existing medical conditions. To avoid rare and severe side effects, doctors do not typically prescribe the drug to people with hypersensitivity, lung disorders, liver disease, kidney failure, eye pressure, drug addiction, coma and sleep disorders. Death from etizolam abuse is rare in comparison with deaths from benzodiazepine abuse. Some of the other rare side effects include memory loss, seizures and learning difficulties. When present, these are often related to abuse rather than recommended doses.
Effects Of Etizolam In Non-Human Applications
Etizolam is legal to purchase for in vitro or non-human experimentation. If you want to use it for chemical research, there are several useful ways to use it. One interesting example was a Japanese study where etizolam was used as an antagonist to measure its reaction with the platelet reacting factor or PAF in blood. However, the blood was drawn and used in a lab. Etizolam was found to inhibit aggregation from the PAF in controlled doses. This safe in vitro experiment led to another Japanese study that analyzed the use of PAF antagonists such as etizolam and others to enhance the implantation of an embryo.
Another chemical research experiment that was conducted using etizolam was performed to test the substance’s reaction with extracted human hormones. There was selective inhibition of neuronal serotonin reuptake. Although the effects on norepinephrine and dopamine neuronal reuptake were minimal, they were significant enough to report. These types of studies that test the substance’s effects on components in extracted blood in a laboratory setting are good examples of safe research. Our company supports only safe in vitro chemical research.
