DOSE:
334 ug oral Etizolam (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 175 lb


I'm conducting this bioassay in order to familiarize myself with the drug in case one day I, or a friend, need it in the future for possible abortion of negative psychedelic experience. I've had some previous experience with benzodiazepines, but not much. Limited to a few xanax when I was still in college, and some klonopin. Either way, here goes.

T + 00:00 - dosed about 1/3 of a 1mg designer pressed etizolam tablet. It was blue and bought from the presser.

T + 00:45 - nothing much if anything. Slightly relaxed but could easily be placebo. Finished remainder of 1mg tablet.

T+ 01:03 - starting to notice a little lagging in cognitive ability. Slight tracers in peripheral vision. Still no euphoria or anxiolytic effect.

T+ 01:10 I think the effect is rising. I just finished eating a burger and that might have contributed to the sudden onset. I feel very heavy unexpectedly. Slightly uncoordinated and dizzy like I've had a few beers. That was quick.

T+ 01:15 peaking fast. That burger must have really had an effect on my metabolism. I'm in for a ride. I've got an obligation in 30 mins. Hope it doesn't get much stronger than this.
I've got an obligation in 30 mins. Hope it doesn't get much stronger than this.
One thing I notice so far is there is absolutely zero change in consciousness. I still fee the same as before, just a little dizzy. Almost like a low dose of DXM. My body is very heavy and my vision is slightly lagging. Complete body effects but not really in a good way. Not bad, but not really enjoyable. We'll see how it progresses.

T+02:00 same feeling may be I'm getting used to it or it's tapering off. Either way not much more to report. Case closed.

Note: quite oddly, the dizziness is almost completely gone when I'm sitting or standing still. But when I walk or move it has an obvious effect on motor control. No anxiolytic effects present whatsoever. In fact I feel a bit anxious about the effect not being what I remember Alprazolam being like though it is often compared to it.

I find this headspace kind of annoying personally. The rest of the stash will be reserved for aborting possible negative psychedelia in the future. And in all honesty I can't see it helping much, but that's another trial.

No real recreational or introspective value.
