Etizolam 2 Replace Xanax-Blue Tablet 1st time

Received quantity of 60 tablets, 1 mg each. Blue round, with a split in the center.

I have been prescribed Xanax recently for a short period, and found that even though I took it as prescribed, I decided to stop taking it, and I experienced a very strange withdrawal. At day one without XnX I just felt exhausted, and had vivid, vivid dreams that disturbed me greatly. When awake, it felt as though everything around me was just MASSIVE, like really big and going to fall on me. Day 2 I felt a little better, but most of these weird symptoms persisted. Being relatively inexperienced with the drug, I did some research and discovered that I was definitely in withdrawal. So I ordered some Etizolam, used my remaining XnX sparingly, and here’s the report.

I was at 1 mg XnX three times a day, and researched all the comparison charts and there is just a lot of confusion as to what the dosage equivalency is. I decided to start with three to make up about 1.2 mg Xanax according to the source I found most reliable. I’ll try to clear that up through this report as well.

Took 2 mg Xanax from my remaining script, my last 4 this morning about 4 hours before this experience (doctor said to double the dose if the effects were not achieved, so this was done legally)

T->0:00 | Crushed three pills, and placed them in a glass of water and drank it down, as I generally find that a broken down parachute time of onset is exponentially greater than just taking the tablet. No usual bitter taste that came with the Xanax so worried that maybe it was fake or something, though it came from a reputable vendor.

T->0:10 | No noticeable effects. Researching more experiences on computer.

T->0:14 | Onset of anxiolytic feeling that comes with benzo use, no euphoria. Very light feeling.

T->0:18 | Definitely feeling the medicinal effects now, though there is a noted difference in what Xanax as I am not yet feeling the heavy, sloppy walking patterns.

T->0:25 | Took one more tablet without crushing it, for a current dosage of 4 mg consumed. Effects are now strengthening in a slightly different way than traditional benzos but, not in a bad way. I just wanted to be able to taper down without that psychosis-like withdrawal. It was seriously terrible. Watching the last Harry Potter during it sent me into a full blown curled up in a ball panic fit. (Explosions, tone, volume, dark hue and vibe of the film)

T->0:32 | Wow. Actually just felt that classic ‘benzo wave’ where I suddenly realize that the thing I took is working.

T->0:46 | Vision is blurring, as in when my head turns, there are trails of the objects within periphery. My body is now feeling heavy, similar to Xanax but still slightly less pronounced. Head is calm, and neck is droopy, like I just want to roll it around and crack it. Warm tingle in the forearms, and craving a cigarette which I will have now.

T->0:56 | After stepping outside for a smoke, I experienced the ‘benzo walk’ and can definitely say these are the real deal. I can say that this is comparable to Xanax at this point in this fashion: 1mg Xanax = 2-3 Etizolam blue pellets. So, maybe they are a little less potent based on other reports, but they are CHEAP, easily available, and legal.

T->1:12 | I take one more (total dosage of 5 mg at this point now and about an hour in), and going to relax on youtube for a while.

T->1:57 | After just taking one more (6mg total now), I've determined that while it's not the same thing, it's pretty damned close, and in a legal grey area.

In conclusion, Etizolam 1mg blue tabs/pellets, are fine. Much like xanax, slight euphoria, and have a lot easier period of weaning/withdrawing than the classic benzos.
