Etizest is a brand of etizolam, which is a short-acting psychoactive compound that is used in some parts of the world as a treatment for anxiety and insomnia. Etizest-1 is manufactured in India by Consern Pharma, and it is sold domestically there as a prescription-only drug (with a Schedule H warning) as well as exported to Europe where it is used pharmaceutically. It is sold in the United States as a research chemical, but is not prescribed as etizolam is not approved by the FDA for pharmaceutical use and remains unscheduled. In general, etizolam is intended for short-term use for anxiety, insomnia, and depression, and is a benzodiazepine analogue.
Etizolam is sold in tablet form in general for pharmaceutical use, and Etizest-1 is available as a 1mg tablet. There is also Etizest-1-MD, which is the same product but sold in a slightly different tablet form which is designed to be dissolved in the mouth.
- Etizolam is also sold in powder form as well as a solution dissolved in propylene glycol, but these are research-grade compounds and available only from certain vendors. The only branded etizolam products available are those sold in tablet form, including Etizest.
- Obviously, a researcher can powder etizolam on their own and dissolve it in a solution, but pharmaceutical-grade etizolam is only available in tablet form. It’s also important to note that if you will be using etizolam for research purposes, most tablet forms contain a binder.
Etizest-1 comes in 1mg tablets, and this is the recommended dose. Some brands of etizolam are sold in 0.5 or 0.25mg tablets as well, but most online vendors selling research chemicals stick to the 1mg tablets. In ordinary circumstances, it’s strongly advised to stick to the recommended dosage as there is the potential for overdose – generally overdosing on etizolam has no longterm effects, but can include unpleasant things such as blackouts and delusions among other things. As such, do not take more than 2-3mg of etizolam at a time under any circumstances.
Like other etizolam products, Etizest is an analogue drug for benzodiazepines used for treating anxiety, depression, and insomnia. It is a thienodiazepine derivative, and is absorbed fairly quickly into the bloodstream – reaching peak plasma hours at between 30 minutes and two hours. Etizolam is noted for its strong hypnotic properties, and is comparable in this way to other benzodiazepines. It acts as a full agonist at the benzodiazepine receptor to produce its range of effects, both therapeutic and adverse.
As a thienotriazolodiazepine, Etizest has a lower risk of accumulation than other diazepines like benzodiazepines. In pharmaceutical tests, etizolam had similar characteristics to other forms of tricyclic antidepressants, and in higher doses can shorten the time taken to fall asleep as well as increase the duration, without significant disruption of deep sleep. However, there may be some reduction of REM sleep when taking etizest or other forms of etizolam as a sleep aid.
Do not take Etizest in combination with alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, or other depressants. This can be fatal.
Etizolam can be extremely physically and psychologically addicting. Do not abuse it, as etizolam dependency has been noted in medical literature.
Do not abruptly cease using etizolam. If you have been using it regularly over a period of several weeks or longer, you must taper your dose.
Etizest is available from online vendors as a research chemical, but is not approved by the FDA for pharmaceutical use. As such, there are no standards that Etizest or other etizolam must strictly adhere to in the United States. This means that the onus is on the vendors to sell the product as advertised, and buyers run the risk of ending up with an expired or tampered product if they are not careful to purchase it only from reliable sources. Generally, branded etizolam products will adhere to the standards in the country where it was manufactured, so Etizest adheres to Indian pharmaceutical standards.
Etizest is legal in the United States as a research compound, but has not been approved by the FDA for pharmaceutical use. In most states, it remains an unscheduled drug and can be purchased online and shipped to you without any problems. However, etizolam is a scheduled drug in five states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Virginia. This makes it difficult to purchase or use Etizest for any purposes in those states, as doing so would be illegal. Outside of the United States, etizolam is often sold as a prescription-only drug but is illegal in some countries under any circumstances.
