How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info Alprazolam contains an ingredient known as lactose which is a type of sugar. If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product
Drug quanitty Your doctor will tell you how many tablets to take and when to take them. This information is also on the label of the carton the tablets come in. If you are not sure, check with your doctor or pharmacist. Do not take your tablets with an alcoholic drink.
Drug Dose You will usually start by taking one 250 microgram or one 500 microgram tablet three times a day. This gives a total dose of 750 micrograms to 1500 micrograms each day. This may be increased gradually up to a total of 3000 micrograms (3mg) a day in divided doses throughout the day. Where the dose does need to be increased, it is usual to increase the night time dose first, before the daytime doses to make sure you are more alert during the day. If you start to get side effects the doctor may lower your dose. The elderly If you are an older patient or you have for example kidney or liver problems and you need a lower dose you will normally start on a dose of 250 micrograms two or three times a day. This dose may be slowly increased if needed and if you don’t get any side effects. Children Alprazolam is not recommended for the treatment of children and teenagers
Excess Drug Consumption It is important that you do not take more tablets than you are told to. If you do accidentally take too many tablets, seek medical attention straight away
Forgot Drug Consumption If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember unless it is time for your next dose. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose. Length of treatment • Alprazolam tablets are only used for short-term treatment (not more than 12 weeks). You will not normally be given a prescription for more than 4 weeks and you will be regularly reviewed by your doctor during this time.
Stop Drug Consumption • Always see your doctor before you stop taking Alprazolam tablets as the dose needs to be reduced gradually. If you stop taking the tablets or reduce the dose suddenly you can get ‘rebound’ effects which might cause you to become temporarily more anxious or restless or to have difficulty sleeping. These symptoms will go away as your body re-adjusts. If you are worried, your doctor can tell you more about this
