When treating anxiety disorder with Niravam, the initial dosage is typically 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg three times daily. For the treatment of panic disorder, the amount is generally higher. However, a healthcare provider will consider several factors before prescribing this drug, such as your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking.
