Alprazolam dosing for anxiety treatment typically starts at 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg three times a day. It is generally recommended that elderly people and people with other health problems start with a lower alprazolam dose, such as 0.25 mg two or three times daily. Most people require a higher alprazolam dosage for the treatment of panic disorder; but in order to prevent side effects, the doctor may start you with a low dose (such as 0.4 mg three times a day).
However, it is recommended to talk to your doc/pharmacist who has prescribed the med.

ckycwby, that is a lot of xanax!!! One miligram is a high dose. You should call your doctor. If that much has not relieved your anxiety, perhaps you need a different med. Please don't take so much xanax as you could overdose or have a siezure!!!
Best wishes, hope you feel better.
