Great Sleep-Aid - Just Like a Benzo
I've had issues falling asleep for about 5-7 years now, only thing that REALLY put me out was Ambien but it's extremely time-consuming and expensive to procure.
I wanted some thing like THAT. No valerian root or or kava crap, I wanted something REAL. So, did a little research, found out about etizloam and a reliable vendor here in the US. Ordered 40 x 1mg. Decided to take one that night. Felt a LITTLE bit of a benzo-like buzz, so I took another while I was shaving in the bathroom, just chewed it up, and then I started to feel pretty good.
I'm staying at my mother's for the weekend, helping her take stuff to the alley, cleaning out my old bedroom, etc. There was some issue that my sister needed something scanned to her about her passport, so I'm all dizzy figuring out why the scanner won't work and then taking photographs of it instead to send to her. So I was able to function on 2mg. When that was all done, I took a third 1mg tablet, and I only have 1 or 2 incomplete memories after that.
I took a third 1mg tablet, and I only have 1 or 2 incomplete memories after that.
I spent a lot of time on the forums reading about black-outs and amnesia with etizolam, but I've never, ever had those problems before with any drug, so I didn't even pay attention to them. Well, let me tell you... I actually do have amnesia for the period after that third 1mg. I play Diablo 2 on my computer sometimes to pass the time, and just now when I opened it up, there was a large portion of the automap that had been explored and my character had apparently died in a place that I have no memory of. There were also a bunch of tabs on Firefox that I do not remember opening or why, and it looks like I dropped a bunch of junk on the floor that I normally would have picked up.
I cannot stress how unusual this is for me. In high school when I used to drink, I could get very, very intoxicated and still have remember every single thing that happened. I've always just had very naturally 'complete' memory. With this though, I remember absolutely nothing after chewing up that third milligram. Not even going to bed. It's very unusual and a little scary.
For me, etizolam definitely has value as a sleep aid (which is very valuable to me). It reminds me of Ambien or any regular benzodiazepine, but I don't think I will be using it recreationally.
