Anxiety Home > Xanax 0.5 mg Tablets
Xanax® (alprazolam) is a prescription drug commonly used for treating panic disorder and anxiety. It comes in tablet form and is available in four different strengths, including:
- 0.25 mg
- 0.5 mg
- 1 mg
- 2 mg.
Higher Xanax dosages are often necessary to control the symptoms of panic disorder. However, it is recommended that you start with 0.5 mg Xanax tablets (one tablet, three times a day). Your healthcare provider can slowly increase your dose if necessary.
The recommended starting dose for treating anxiety is 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg three times daily. Your healthcare provider may increase your dosage slowly, if necessary, to control your anxiety symptoms or decrease your dose if you experience bothersome Xanax side effects.
