Dosage & Administration
It is recommended that the evening dose should be increased before the daytime doses. Very severe manifestations of anxiety may require larger initial daily doses. The optimal dosage is one that permits symptomatic control of excessive anxiety without impairment of mental and motor function. Exceptionally, it may be necessary to increase dosage to a maximum of 3 mg daily, given in divided doses.
For Elderly and Debilitated Patients: The initial dosage is 0.125 mg 2 or 3 times daily. If necessary, this dosage may be increased gradually depending on patient tolerance and response.
