Risk assessment

This powder, sold as alprazolam, did not contain alprazolam but bromazolam.

Bromazolam is a New Psychoactive Substance (NPS) from the benzodiazepine group and has never been researched and approved for human use. Relatively little information is available on bromazolam. The substance appears to have a similar potency and spectrum of action to alprazolam. Bromazolam is an unresearched substance. No data is available on risks, toxicity, side effects and long-term consequences. Bromazolam has been associated with some incidents and deaths, especially with mixed use. Further information on bromazolam can be found here.

New benzodiazepines and opioids are largely unexplored and in part highly potent - these substances should therefore be tested in a very small amount or analyzed in a drug checking before use and mixed use should be avoided urgently! Especially the mixed use of benzodiazepines/opioids and depressant substances (e.g. alcohol or GHB/GBL) as well as dissociatives (e.g. ketamine) can lead to unconsciousness and a life-threatening respiratory depression.

Consumption is not advised!

Alert level

Safer Use


Have your substance tested in a drug check if you bought it on the black market or on the internet. Counterfeit blisters may look identical to the original packaging.

Mixed use

Do not mix any depressant substances such as benzodiazepines, alcohol, GHB/GBL or opioids. Risk of unconsciousness or respiratory paralysis!


Feel your way to the dosage and do not rely on dosage information from friends. Various factors such as habituation or dependence can contribute to a greatly increased dosage!


If you do not have the possibility to have substances analyzed, first test a maximum of one third of the pill. Some counterfeit drugs contain a more potent substance than the original.

Wait and see

Wait at least 2 hours after taking the drug. With some drugs, the onset of the intoxicating effect is very slow or it is difficult to perceive.
