I am prescribed Xanax 2mg XR once a day... my question is how does the XR part work? is it slowly releasing @mg through out the day? 2mg immediately then 2mg later in the day? I am super confused... any help would be much appreciated!
Just as said before when you take the 2mg tablet XR that is a good starting dose then the doctor may increase it later if needed..Very important you follow this instructions I have copied and am now pasting.XANAX XR Tablets may be administered once daily, preferably in the morning. The tablets should be taken intact; they should not be chewed, crushed, or broken>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> okay this is me again so most take in the morning and the 2mg is slowly released over the day and that is what you get is a total of 2mg from these tablets just that it is released from the tablet slowly all day. So you do not have to take the regular type of xanax 4 to 6 times daily..hope this helps you..But you are getting a total of 2mg daily.good luck
