Dosage Of Xanax

Please tell me the legal dose of xanax 2 mg. a doctor can write to you per month



Thank you for your question and welcome to

I am not sure if there is a legal limit, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Xanax indicates on their site;

For anxiety, the recommended starting dose would between .25 and .50 mg with increases, as needed, up to a maximum of 4 mg. per day. (When needed, increases should be in increments of .5 mg. every three days.)

For panic disorder, the maximum daily recommended dose would be 10 mg. According to the information provided by Pfizer, dosing for panic disorder would be somewhere between 1 mg and 10 mg per day, with the average being 5 to 6 mg. per day.

I hope this information helps.
