I am 72 years old female. Earlier I was diagnosed as having anxiety-depression related OCD. Was prescribed Risperidone 1mg twice a day and Clonazepam-0.25 twice a day, but it did not work. Now instead of Clonazepam I am being given Etizolam-0.5 twice a day. Does any body know that Etizolam shows better results than Clonazepam?

It isn't necessarily that one gives better results, it's really that since there are some differences in the medication, one may work better for you than the other one did.

Etizolam is a Thienodiazepine, which means it is a Benzodiazepine analog, but it is different and works a bit differently, though the effects are very similar.

Therefore, it might work for you, where the regular, straight Benzodiazepines did not.

Are there any other questions or comments?

Clonazepam is more potent benzo till now and it is long acting benzo 6 to 12 hours for average dose.

etizolam has less prone to be addicitve and does not build tolerence quickly. But more effective is clonazepam. If you take moderately 0.5mg once or twice is ok. and as need basis is much better.

But sir when clonazepam 0.5 mg is taken in morning, there is so much sleepiness throughout the day, with etizolem it is lesser. Which one is better for treating depression? Currently
