Is it okay to take three Xanax (alprazolam) per day and one Ativan at night for sleep? This cocktail of meds seems a bit much......

In brief: Yes

Xanax (alprazolam) is typically given 3 or 4 times/day.
I'm not sure why you were prescribed Ativan at night; an extra Xanax (alprazolam) should work just as well.
