Etizest-1, also known as Etilaam and Etizest, is a thienodiazepine drug that has a short-acting effect on the mind. It is used for a variety of purposes, primarily as an anti-depressant, sedative, hypnotic, muscle relaxant, and anti-convulsant medication. This makes it a fairly common substance that is important to understand fully before taking it.
It has some use as an anxiolytic and amnestic medicine as well. It is a very potent drug – estimates claim that just one milligram is equivalent to 10 milligrams of diazepam, the drug most closely related to it.
As a result, it is important to take this medication in a fairly small dosage to avoid the risk of overdose or other serious problems. Here’s what should be known about this medication before taking it.
The Forms It Takes On
Etizest-1 takes on many different forms to make it easier for a wide range of people to use it. These forms will vary depending on a person’s preference and ability to take certain types of medication. For example, some may not like powder-based medications while others will prefer it. The three main forms it takes on include powders, solutions, and pellets.
The powder form of this substance can be dropped into any liquid form (preferably water) and dissolved by stirring it rapidly. This breaks apart the substance and allows the person to drink it easily without any serious problems. It does have a sharp taste to it, but this can be easily ignored by many.
Solutions are somewhat similar to powders in that they are taken orally and can be mixed with other liquids. However, they are a liquid, rather than a dry powder. They are typically very concentrated in nature, making it important to avoid taking just what is prescribed by the doctor and no more.
Pellets are simply hard pills that can be swallowed orally with the use of water. The benefit of this form is that it will digest more slowly in the body and take affect at a more controlled level. It is also a good choice for those who already taken pills regularly, as it will be easy for them to remember.
Safe Doses Of Etizest-1
Etizest-1 can be taken in a wide range of doses. Typically they are under five milligrams, due to the potency of this drug. Below is a chart of the typical ranges of this drug’s doses, including threshold doses, light doses, common doses, strong doses, and heavy doses.
A threshold dose of this drug is usually about 0.2 – 0.5 milligram. It is prescribed to those who need just a very light reaction of this drug. For example, the anti-convulsant use of this medication is typically int his range.
Those who need a light sedation effect from this substance typically get doses from a range of 0.5 – 1 milligram. Generally, this is a good range for those who need help with insomnia because it helps them get to sleep without making them excessively drowsy.
Most commonly, this drug is prescribed at doses of 1 – 2 milligrams. For those who need more serious control of depression and anxiety, this is a common dose. In fact, one milligram is a typical starting dose that can be increased or decreased depending on the needs of the person.
When Etizest isn’t effective at the common range, it can be increased to 2 – 5 milligrams. This dosage is generally only used when a person needs extra help calming down or falling asleep. The risk of addiction or toxicity makes most doctors hesitant to increase it to this range.
This dosage is very rarely given out due to its intensity. It is used only in severe emergency situations, such as if a person is having a panic attack or needs to be sedated quickly. Should be avoided due to the potential of toxicity.
