Xanax (alprazolam): Maximum daily dose 4-6mg. Anything over = possible overdose. Depression is a mood disorder and a serious medical condition. There are many different types of depression disorders. At the same time there are many effective treatments and self-help strategies. If clinical depression is suspected, you should be referred to a psychiatrist for management. Rec.: see your PCP for evaluation and referral.
