So a month ago I got a prescription for Flutoprazepam (Restas). 2mg to be taken in the morning once a day.
What made me aim for this medication was an incident I had a few days before. After taking 200mg of Tramadol, 350mg of caffeine, and 200mg of dihydro-codeine, I went to work. Around 2pm, I wake up inside an ambulance. I was told I had a seizure and just totally collapsed on the floor behind my desk, and was apparently unconscious for three minutes. I landed on my face which was why the area around my left eye looked like I ran into Iron Mike.
I had read that taking high doses of Tramadol may lead to seizures, but of course, I thought it wouldn't happen to me.
Anyway, lesson learned. Make sure to take an anti-convulsant before overdosing on Tramadol.
And what better than a benzodiazepine that is 4x stronger than diazepam AND lasts 4x longer!
So, I've been taking my Flutoprazepam once a day for the past two weeks. And it is GREAT...all day long.
The only issue is that if I don't have caffeine (or some kind of upper) in my system, the Flutoprazepam will make me totally sleepy for the entire day. On a day when I had ran out of my codeine/caffeine pills, I took Flutoprazepam in the morning. I slept for 16 out of the next 20 hours. All the people on the camping trip were amazed at me.
Of course, as indicated on the package, Flutoprazepam does indeed inhibit anxiety, induce feelings of calmness, and relaxes one's muscles.
In the past, my left eye would occasionally twitch when someone started to get on my nerves, or my right hand would incessantly quiver after a night of binge drinking. Not anymore thanks to Restas.
The wikipedia says it's one of the TOP 3 sought-after and abused benzos in east Asia. I'm not really sure what that means. But, again, I don't understand all the hype around Alprazolam (in the West) nor Nimetazepam either.
I can say that Flutoprazepam is my favorite benzo in the world. And my second favorite is Bromazepam (lexotan). (this statement is made taking into account extensive experience with many of the more popular benzos)
If anybody has any questions, comments, fears, hopes, or confessions regarding Flutoprazepam, please feel free to post!
