Modern humans must learn how to relate to psychoactives
responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and
integrating use into a healthy, enjoyable, and productive life.
Great While It Lasts

1 mg oral Etizolam (daily)


I have taken Etizolam for a few years now to self-medicate my anxiety and panic issues. Had good experiences with prescribed benzos in the past, but didn't want to involve a doctor to get them anymore so decided to give this a try.

For the most part I kept my doses very low at 1mg per day and only did 2mg on really bad days or on the occasion I wanted an extra break from my anxiety.

I have to say I had a really positive experience with this drug. I only rarely took it recreationally, usually to amplify the effects of alcohol which it does do, but in those situations it was fun with little downside.

My biggest issue with it is I build up a tolerance really fast and either have to take increasingly scary doses or move on to something else. Wish it took longer for that to happen.

Going to far can lead to some real discontinuation problems.
