Flualprazolam is a novel depressant substance of the benzodiazepine class. Flualprazolam is chemically related to alprazolam (Xanax), differing by the addition of a fluorine atom, and is reported to produce similar psychoactive effects.
Flualprazolam appears to have first become available for sale on the online research chemical market in 2017. It currently remains unscheduled.
Users should note that the sudden discontinuation of benzodiazepines can be dangerous or even life-threatening for individuals for heavy or long-term users. As a result, individuals who are physically dependent on this substance are advised to taper their dose by gradually lowering the amount taken each day over a prolonged period instead of stopping use abruptly.
It is strongly advised to use harm reduction practices when using this substance.

Disclaimer: The effects listed below are taken from the subjective effect index, which is based on anecdotal reports and the personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. As a result, they should be treated with a healthy degree of skepticism. It is worth noting that these effects will rarely (if ever) occur all at once, although higher doses will increase the chances of inducing a full range of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely on higher doses and may include serious injury or death.
- If applicable, a brief paragraph summary of the substance's physical effects may be included here. You may select physical effects to add below here.
- Note: The following references benzodiazepines specifically, but due to the close structural and pharmacological similarities they share, can be taken to apply to thienodiazepines like etizolam as well. Paradoxical reactions to benzodiazepines such as increased seizures (in epileptics), aggression, increased anxiety, violent behavior, loss of impulse control, irritability and suicidal behavior sometimes occur (although they are rare in the general population, with an incidence rate below 1%). These paradoxical effects occur with greater frequency in recreational abusers, individuals with mental disorders, children, and patients on high-dosage regimes.
If applicable, a brief paragraph summary of the substance's cognitive effects may be included here.
You may select from a list of cognitive effects to add below here.
- Anxiety suppression - very effective
- Cognitive euphoria
- Compulsive redosing
- Memory suppression - quite strong compared to xanax, can be problematic
- Delusions of sobriety - present but manageable
- Analysis suppression
- Ego inflation
- Thought deceleration
- Emotion suppression
- Sleepiness - way stronger than xanax above 1mg

Toxicity and harm potential
This toxicity and harm potential section is a stub.
As such, it may contain incomplete or even dangerously wrong information. You can help by expanding or correcting it.
Flualprazolam likely has a low toxicity relative to dose. However, it is potentially lethal when mixed with depressants like alcohol or opioids.
It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.
Dependence and abuse potential
Like most benzodiazepines, Flualprazolam is considered to be highly addictive with a high potential for abuse.
Tolerance will develop to the sedative-hypnotic effects within a couple of days of continuous use. After cessation, the tolerance returns to baseline in 7 - 14 days. However, in certain cases this may take significantly longer in a manner which is proportional to the duration and intensity of one's long-term usage.
Benzodiazepine discontinuation is notoriously difficult and potentially life-threatening for heavy or long-term users. There is an increased risk of seizure following discontinuation of benzodiazepines. Withdrawal symptoms or rebound symptoms may occur after ceasing usage abruptly following a few weeks or longer of steady dosing, and may necessitate a gradual dose reduction. Substances which lower the seizure threshold such as Tramadol should be avoided during withdrawal.

Although many psychoactive substances are reasonably safe to use on their own, they can quickly become dangerous or even life-threatening when taken with other substances. The following lists some known dangerous combinations, but cannot be guaranteed to include all of them. Independent research should always be conducted to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe to consume. Some interactions listed have been sourced from TripSit.
