How Does Etizolam Work?
Etizolam is a benzodiazepine analog that is often recommended as an aid for anxiety, depression, insomnia, panic attacks and several other mental disorders. Similar to other drugs in the same family, Etizolam has been known to trigger anxiolytic, hypnotic, muscle-relaxing and anti-convulsive characteristics. It’s not currently regulated in the United States, but the sale of the drug has been approved for research purposes.
The drug itself has not been tested extensively, but similar drugs that are made of the same kind of components are readily available and used by millions of people across America, Valium and Diazepam being two of the most popular.
The way in which Etizolam works is by influencing the chemical structure of the brain, promoting the production of GABA emissions which ultimately leads to a sedative, relaxing effect on our body. The drug essentially hijacks the GABA receptors in our brains and tells the brain to calm down for a moment – perfect for those who suffer with anxiety, sleeplessness and a general lack of focus.
Etizolam is a popular choice across Europe, Australia and India thanks to its ability to bypass the blood-brain barrier considerably faster than similar medications, allowing the user to feel the effects much quicker.
The world health organisation states that Etizolam is between 6 and 10 times more potent than diazepam, so it’s use as an anti-anxiety aid should be done so with caution. With that being said, Etizolam is typically a safe drug to use for the short term, with the most notable side effects being drowsiness. Long-term use of benzodiazepines can lead to addiction and physical dependency, so long-term use is not recommended.
