The Big and Dandy Etaqualone Thread!
Etaqualone (Aolan, Athinazone, Ethinazone) is an analogue of methaqualone which was developed in the 1960s and marketed mainly in France and some other European countries. It has sedative, hypnotic, muscle relaxant and central nervous system depressant properties, and was used for the treatment of insomnia.
The dosage and effects are reported to be similar to those of methaqualone, but shorter acting and slightly weaker.
Typical reports use between 50 and 500mg of etaqualone, depending on desired effects. Old pharmaceutical formulations of Ethinazone were 350mg tablets.
Etaqualone is thought to act in a similar way to barbiturates and benzodiazepam by increasing the sensitivity of GABA-A receptors. Recreational effects include euphoria, relaxation, increased sociability and sexuality, reduces short-term memory, and loss of coordination. Combination with other depressants has a potentiating effect and can cause overdose. Tolerance to benzodiazepines or alcohol will also reduce effects.
Ethaqualone can be present as a free base, insoluble in water but soluble in alcohol and nonpolar solvents, or as a water soluble hydrochloride salt which is about 85% as potent as the freebase by weight.
The most common ROA of ethaqualone is orally, but snorting the salt, and smoking the free base has also been reported.
A Chinese manufacturer is offering Etaqualone ex stock. Does anyone know more about this Metaqualone analog beyond what wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etaqualone) has to say? How much is the dose? How are the effects?
