I've been dealing with benzo deoendance for close to twenty years. However, I have stopped, and tapered off completly 4 different times.^Im quite familiar with benzo withdrawal. Ive actually had 2 successful tapers and one traumatizing cold turkey detox..... Im currently in a place that isn't quite a detox or treatment centre nor a mental hospital. Its a 30 day program which helps people like me get therapy and treatment. I came here due to benzodiazepine dependence. I rotated mostly through etizolam,clonazepam, and lorazepam depending on the week or time of month as to what was available to me. In this program they have me currently stabalized on clonazepam. I am no down to 4.5 mg per day. I was at 5 mg but dropped 0.5...... i replaced my morning 4 mg, afternoon 2 mg and bedtime 4 mg etizolam schedule with a 2 mg, 1 mg, and 1.5 mg schedule of clonazepam. I feel perfectly normal. though due to a new wave of covid here in Canada and my area in particular, it looks as though i wont be getting into a long term in patient facility for benzo detox as i had initially hoped.
So I had no choice but to order 250 mg of emergency etizolam to my address in the event that im discharged without a follow up prescription (thats typically the case here, they only prescribe while you are in house) and if I cant find my family doctor in time to write me a clonazepam Rx Id be totally screwed and facing severe withdrawal. the 250 mg of etizolam i really hope isnt needed, but im just not going to go through benzo withdrawal cold turkey and risking a seizure especially lwith clonazepams anti seizure properties being quite strong. Im going to try and get away with the lowest dose of etizolam as I can, Im hoping I can get away with 6 mg per day I really do
The lower you go the better of course. I just found I'm ok if I use. 5 for a month and discontinue. Someone else may be different. First time I did that I did go down to .25 for a month before stopping.for me I feel like I want to go even lower, like 0.25 mg of clonazepam. then switch too 0.25 mg of etizolam a day (in two 125 microgram dosages) then get myself literally down to 0.1 mg of etizolam (1 mg of diazepam) I know it may seem unnecessarily low, but I feel if I go ultra low i should feel zero withdrawal. last time I used diazepam to taper I jumped off 1 mg and took a 50 mg pregabalin if I had trouble sleeping but otherwise had no symptoms. this was a 2 year taper right from 100 mg of diazepam a day right down to 1 mg. (I was using about 20 mg of xanax per day and 100 mg of diazepam held me fine)
Powder is WAY cheaper. I began using Etizolam blotters, but now just weigh powder into olive oil or MCT oil, as Im allergic to PG solution.Hey everyone
I'm a new one on etziolam
Is it strong ?
Powder or pill ? which one works better ?
Haha i hope you label that olive oil afterwardsPowder is WAY cheaper. I began using Etizolam blotters, but now just weigh powder into olive oil or MCT oil, as Im allergic to PG solution.
It takes some boiling inside the jar and a pan to fully dissolve, but works very well at a fraction of the cost.
Lol, no labelling. But I reckon I would rather accidentally swallow a bottle of etizolam than liquid LSD. Labels for sure with that one.Haha i hope you label that olive oil afterwards
Imagine a friend/family member coming to make a meal and using it or it getting used as salad dressing or something and accidentally blacking out the whole dinner party
Thank you, I would be taking 2mg of Etizolam and 50 mg of seroquel, you think that’s too high of a dosage? It would be hours in between.I have a friend who takes both but not in heroic dosages. 25-100mg of seroquel and a couple mg of etizolam shouldn't hurt you .
I don't know what she takes dosage wise specifically .
They both cause sedation so be careful

Thank you so much for your help friend.
