Etizolam is a drug that helps treat anxiety and panic disorders. While it can help treat other diseases, it is also illegal in many countries. Read more below to learn about the pros and cons of this drug.



Etizolam is commonly used for a short term treatment for anxiety and panic disorders. While it is effective at treating certain diseases, it has also been a drug that has the potential for abuse.

Health Benefits of Etizolam

1) Etizolam Treats Anxiety


In a double-blind study, etizolam is effective at treating anxiety and depressive symptoms (R, R2).

It reduces anxiety and shows signs as an antidepressant (R).

In a double-blind study with 30 female subjects, etizolam was effective at reducing anxiety and depressive activity.

When paired with other treatments, it alleviates symptoms in a case of panic disorder (R).

It is also an effective treatment for hypertension (R).

2) Etizolam Alleviates Pain

It can alleviate pain for up to thirty minutes but is not the ideal form of treatment (R).

In young female patients, etizolam in combination with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug was an effective treatment for tension typical headaches (R).

This drug is also effective at treating irritable colon syndrome with concurrent chronic anxiety conditions (R).

3) Etizolam Reduces Schizophrenic Delusions


Acute administration impacts P300 latency (decreased cognitive function in decision making) (R).

When it comes to cognitive function with those have anxiety disorders, doses of the drug were no more significant than the placebo (R).

It mitigates auditory delusion seen in a schizophrenic patient (R, R2).

4) Etizolam Helps With Vertigo

Low doses reduce dizziness scores, functional and emotional scores in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (R).

5) Etizolam Prevents Brain Disorders


Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome is a brain disorder that can cause muscular dysfunction, unstable blood pressure levels, high fever, etc.

With the withdrawal of oral Etizolam, symptoms of Postoperative neuroleptic malignant syndrome was present in an elderly man who had undergone a lobectomy of the lung (R).

In a Parkinson’s patient, withdrawal of the drug induces symptoms of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (R).

Treatment can also reduce the recurrence of chronic subdural hematoma, which happens when blood pools in the brain (R).


  • Additionally, assessments made at baseline and after 2 and 4 weeks of treatment, used the Hamilton Rating Scales for Anxiety and for Depression and determination of the weekly panic crises frequency. The results showed that it produced significant improvements in chronic anxiety, phobic ideas, associated depressive symptoms and episodic anxiety, and was significantly more effective than placebo (R).
  • In the assessment of overall improvement, 4 patients (22.2%) were rated as markedly improved, 4 patients (22.2%) as moderately improved, 7 patients (38.9%) as slightly improved, 3 patients (16.7%) as unchanged, and none as worsened (R).
  • However, headaches improved significantly in female patients (p<0.05), and shoulder pain improved in young and female patients (p<0.05, p<0.04) in the NSAID-ET group (R).
  • In a study with eleven males, carbamazepine induces the drug’s metabolism (R).
  • Itraconazole prevents Etizolam metabolism and CYP3A4 plays an important role in metabolism (R).


Etizolam has sedative and sleep-inducing effects (R).

In contrast to adults, when children take Etizolam they experience excitation and muscle weakness (R).

Although it has lower possibilities of dependence, it should be taken with caution because the possibility of dependence is not eliminated only mitigated (R).

    Mixing Etizolam and/or true benzo-class drugs with alcohol is completely safe, providing you do it sensibly and in moderation, however it’s important to remember that alcohol and Etizolam/benzo’s work on similar pathways in brain so they will potentiate each other (make the effects stronger). Very dangerous if driving or operating machinery/cooking etc, as you may just nod off…

    However taken in low doses and alcohol in moderation, there’s no risk really if you have tolerance to both.

    Etizolam is nothing like Xanax trust me, I’ve seen Xanax addicts who have been on it for a decade or more, and I’ve seen people use Etizolam many a time as a sleep aid. Used responsibly and occasionally Etizolam is a useful drug to help you sleep, but used regularly it will mess your sleep cycle up and become habit forming. And it’s definitely not suitable for treating anxiety disorders.

    Xanax is a true benzo-class drug, Etizolam is not, it’s a benzodiazepine analog drug that works differently.

    Xanax has a short-life and is perhaps the most potent of the benzo-drugs which is why it’s so effective for treating anxiety (but also why tolerance and addiction develops rapidly).

    Xanax will knock you out if you take 2-3mg and don’t have a benzo tolerance, but it will takes a while to put you to sleep (many hours) whereas Etizolam is much more effective as a sleep aid and will knock you put usually within an hour, even only a low dose (0..5 to 1mg) unless you have a tolerance. Tolerance to Etizolam develops much slower as its an analog drug like I said, and works differently to classic benzo drugs. However, if you use it daily for sleep you will develop a tolerance and dependency on it.

    The thing about Etizolam too to remember is that, whilst it’s a very useful drug for helping people with insomnia get to sleep quickly, it’s not a good drug for keeping you asleep or improving quality of your sleep cycle. On the contrary. Like its benzo cousins, it disrupts sleep cycle over time and you’re less likely to enter the deep REM sleep phase, so when you wake up you don’t feel fully rested.

    If you’re looking for a sleep aid, try Valerian a natural herb, it’s as potent as Valium, and does help maintain sleep cycle if taken inconjunction with other sleep-aid herbs.
