This report will detail my experiences with a couple of RC scene benzos, clonazolam and flubromazolam. I've written several reports about my use of RC benzos, and felt these two deserved special attention.
What makes these two extra special amongst the current selection of benzodiazepines (very thankfully) available in the RC scene is that for me at least they are simply too powerful to be able to use responsibly at all.
I'll start with clonazolam, also known as clonitrazolam. This benzo sounds deceptively like clonazepam. This shit hits me like a Mack Truck. I first took it because I had been taking way too much of my beloved etizolam, and it was losing efficacy. It wasn't my intention to use benzos for recreation, I was using the etiz to self-medicate my anxiety as my doctors have all refused to even entertain giving me benzos for at least the past 15 years. I literally just quit asking for them finally.
I was not prepared for Clonazolam. I really don't remember the first time I took it, but it was extreme compared to etiz. I immediately became enamored with the recreational potential of this new chemical. In about a week I was going home after work and taking increasingly high doses of clonazolam and getting very fucked up. A recommended heavy dose is 0.5 mg and I was consuming 4-6-8 mg in no time.
Using clonazolam for anxiety and remaining functional was not possible for me. It immediately became a recreational drug, and the first time I took it before work I got fired. I thought I was fine, I was completely fucking wasted.
I thought I was fine, I was completely fucking wasted.
Oddly or maybe not, I really didn't even care and just went home and took more Clonazolam. This stuff truly and completely gave me a case of the 'don't give a fucks'. I think that is why I loved it so much for a short time, it made nothing bother me. It's impossible to worry about anything when I am as high as Clonazolam made me.
I noticed another effect of it, something I've only ever experienced from Zopiclone. It caused a quasi-psychedelic trip in high doses. The lights took on a shimmering effect, and colors were vivid and melted together. Also, clonazolam wasn't nearly as hypnotic as a dose of etizolam. It was otherwise way more powerful of a sedative, during the time I used it I literally just layed on my couch smoking cigarettes and looking at my phone for hours and days.
Coming off of it sent me to the ER, I tried to cold turkey quit and was awake for over a week, I lost track of the time after that. I was out of my mind by then, and in physical agony. The withdrawals felt like I was plugged into a bare electrical cord. It took the ER staff about 2 hours before they came out and gave me one single lorazepam. I have never felt such overwhelming relief a few minutes after I took it. I was on the phone with my sister and started laughing out loud as the Ativan took away weeks worth of extreme withdrawal pain in minutes.They gave me a short script of clonazepam, but it was enough to withdraw from the c-lam completely.
I ended up getting some more etizolam shortly after I quit the clonazolam, and it was completely useless. I thought the pills were bunk. They weren't, the clonazolam had made my tolerance so high they had no effect anymore.
Flubromazolam is the other heavy benzo I wanted to cover, as there is very little info about it here, it is still a very new chemical. It is a triazolo version of another benzo, flubromazepam. I had taken the f-pam a few times and it was a great benzo. It has a really long come up , and is pretty forgiving and very long lasting. This f-lam, is another thing altogether. I bought only 2.5 mg of it, it came from England via Royal Mail. They now have a complete ban on all RC's, this was just before then. It was pressed in 0.25mg pellets. This was after I had been pretty strung out on the C-lam and had fucked up my life for a few months. I had gotten another job, and being the addict I am I decided to dabble in more benzos. I thought, I'll just get a tiny amount and no more clonazolam. So, I got this new shit.
I had a new job but didn't have to be there until about 9:00 AM I remember. I decided I would take this untested new drug at about 7 PM. I went and bought a beer also, a 40 oz. Mistake #1. Mistake #2, I took 3 of the 0.25 mg pellets.

I have never had instant complete amnesia like this in my life. I woke up sitting on the couch at 8 AM, with the mostly finished warm 40 oz. in one hand, and a burnt down cigarette in the other. Thankfully my apartment didn't burn, I'm not sure a fire would have woke me anyway. I was still completely wasted, high as fuck off these three pills twelve hours later. I wobbled to work, and washed dishes for about 3 hours before I got tired of working and left. I simply wanted to go home, this job sucks anyway and fuck it was my thought process. I'm not sure I had any thought process, in this level of benzos I simply do whatever I feel like with no thought to consequences. I went home and slept more hours. I woke up to the boss calling me and telling me I was fired, and my girlfriend long distance over the phone chewing my ass from across the country (it was Christmas) for getting high on benzos again after all the shit I had just been through not two months before. I threw the remaining 7 tablets in the toilet and flushed them. This was one benzo I had no desire to ever take again.
F-lam is entirely hypnotic, c-lam is entirely sedative. Zopiclone even has nothing on flubromazepam for sleep. It's too scary to use even for this. For functional benzos, I would not pick up either of these two....
