For depression, patients are usually started on fast-acting disintegrating tablets at 0.5 mg, thrice daily. This dose might be increased to 1 mg, to be taken about thrice daily. However, as the body adapts to this medication, dosage is increased, but never beyond 4.5 mg per day, and at this point, extended-release alprazolam is prescribed.
In the case of anxiety disorders, the dosage progresses in the same manner, but may reach as high as 10 mg of alprazolam daily. However, for stress, a maximum daily dosage of 4 mg is the norm. For older patients, 0.25 mg tablets that amounts to daily dosage of 2 mg is the norm.
