So you have taken the first step – you said that you have a chronic anxiety disorder and you want to do something about it so you can go back to living a normal life and having healthy relationships! You’ve even taking the second step, you chose Alprazolam (also known as Generic Xanax) for the treatment of your anxiety disorder. Now you need to take the next step, you need to figure out how much Alprazolam to take.
Alprazolam slows down your central nervous system, creating a calm and relaxing feeling that allows you to live life and not be afraid to even walk out your front door due to some irrational fear. Because it does slow down the nervous system, and it can cause tolerance and dependency on the medication, it is very important to know just how much Alprazolam to take. Alprazolam (Generic Xanax) is available in dosage amounts of 0.25mg, 0.5mg, 1mg, and 2mg tablets and shouldn’t be taken with some specific diet pills that affect its effectiveness such as Xenical.
Most medical professionals recommend that men and women suffering from anxiety disorders start on a dosage of 0.25 or 0.5mg taken three times per day. Depending on how effective this dosage is, after three to four days, the dosage can be increased (there needs to be a few days before increasing dosages as to decrease the likelihood of tolerance and dependency).
For panic disorders, medical professionals recommend a starting dosage of 0.5mg to 1mg tablets. The usual dosage is often raised every three to four days up to 5mg to 6pm tablets a day. You will have to be monitored to make sure if the medication amount is enough.
Older individuals, aged above 50, should only take a Generic Xanax pill of 0.25mg and should be monitored while on the medication.
Pregnant women and breastfeeding women should not take Generic Xanax (Alprazolam).
Alprazolam is also not recommended for minors under the age of 18 as the side effects are not completely known.
If you think you took too much Generic Xanax (Alprazolam), immediately call for emergency medical attention. Symptoms of an overdose include impaired coordination, confusion, drowsiness, slowed reaction time, and possible coma.
