Etizolam is used in India. My doctor in India prescribed it for me when I was living there. I don't think this drug is more dangerous than any other anti-depressive drug out there. As long as it's taken under doctor supervision and in the recommended doses, it's fine.
Etizolam was actually very effective for me. It improved my mood immediately and it did not make me as drowsy as some other anti-depressive drugs I've tried. I also did not have a hard time coming off of it, but I did taper slowly. I think the FDA should reconsider.
