0.5 is stronger than 0.25. When you put an extra 0 this is easy 0.50 and 0.25. Half is more than a quarter.

No. actually 0.1 is less. Look at it like 0.10 then it is a tenth and a dime is less than a quarter. You are thinking of 1.0.

Its all in where the decimal is. If you are a nurse calling meds in or you are a doc writing then you have to have it in the right place or you could give someone to much or not enough meds. Most time if the parmacy things it looks strange they will call the doc office to double check.

.5 is twice the amount as .25 --- ( .1 would be equal to 10 cents in a dollar-- .25 is equal to 25cents and .5 is equal to 50 cents, and so on... ) LOL thats the easiest way for me to calculate decimal dosages

Dzoobaby I have a question 0.25mg of xanax is it the weakest? then 0.5mg is the next strongest? then 1mg is the next strongest, then it comes in 2mg bar made by sandoz? then it comes in extended release of 2mg and 3mg I think what I did was put 0.1mg of xanax (typo) no such thing as 0.1mg xanax it's 1mg of xanax is this right?

I would say that the 0.25 is weaker than the 0.5 because the 0.5 is actually 0.50 which makes it stronger.
