Etizex 1mg is a prescription medicine manufactured by Tripada Healthcare. As it is known for creating a sense of calm throughout the body, Etizex 1mg is often prescribed to manage temporary, short-term feelings of stress and anxiety, perhaps due to upcoming events or one-off stressful conditions such as travel, interviews, public performances, or exams. When taken as recommended, Etizex 1mg can help patients to feel more at ease and reduce symptoms of anxiety such as insomnia and irritability.
How Etizex Works
Etizex 1mg tablets contain 1mg of the active ingredient Etizolam. While Etizolam is not chemically classified as a Benzodiazepine, it works in a very similar way. The Etizolam in Etizex 1mg tablets interacts with GABA neurotransmitters (a form of chemical messenger) in the body to slow down overactive brain activity and relax the muscles. The small reduction in brain activity creates a subtle drowsy effect that generates calm.
Etizex 1mg is often used to treat:
- Short term feelings of anxiety related to a specific event
- Severe nervousness relating to events such as travel
- Generalised anxiety disorder experienced sporadically
- Situational obsessive compulsive disorder
- Temporary panic disorder
- Symptoms of anxiety such as insomnia
Etizex 1mg tablets are often taken once a day. However, it is important to take the medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water, and can be taken either with or without food. Where possible, try to take Etizex 1mg tablets at the same time each day to maintain consistent levels in the body.
If a dose is missed, skip and take the next dose as normal. Do not take two doses together as this may cause adverse effects. Etizex 1mg tablets should continue to be taken until the course is completed. Do not stop taking the tablets earlier than advised.
Etizex Side Effects
Etizex 1mg is generally considered to be safe when taken as prescribed. However, as with many medications, some patients may experience mild side effects, including:
- Problems with balance and coordination
- Difficulty speaking or slurred speech
- Involuntary eye movements
- Low blood pressure
- Slow heartbeat
- Increased sleepiness
The active ingredient in Etizex 1mg tablets, Etizolam, is derived from Benzodiazepines, so some typical side effects of Benzodiazepines may also be experienced by patients.
It is important for patients to read the patient information leaflet in the packaging for a full list of possible side effects from taking Etizex 1mg. Always consult with the prescribing doctor if side effects persist. If experiencing difficulty breathing, call 999 immediately.
