Some considerations for people taking alprazolam include:
- Alprazolam comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth two or three times daily.
- Alprazolam can be taken with or without food. It the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Alprazolam may cause serious problems if you take it at higher dosages or for a longer period of time than your healthcare provider recommends (see Xanax Addiction).
