Pharmacology

Zolium 0.5 (Alprazolam) is a triazole analog belonging to the 1,4-benzodiazepine medication family. It exerts its effects as an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), hypnotic (sleep-inducing), and anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) agent. The mechanism of action of Alprazolam involves the enhancement of the inhibitory neurotransmitter Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) through its interaction with the GABA-benzodiazepine receptor complex in the central nervous system (CNS).

By enhancing the effects of GABA, Alprazolam produces a dose-dependent CNS depressive effect, which can range from moderate impairment of task performance to inducing sleep (hypnosis). This makes Alprazolam effective in treating conditions like anxiety disorders, panic disorder, and certain types of seizures.

However, it's important to use Alprazolam with caution, as its CNS depressive effects can lead to drowsiness, sedation, and impairments in cognitive and motor functions. Long-term use or misuse of Alprazolam can also lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms if abruptly discontinued. Therefore, it should be used as directed by a healthcare professional and not be abruptly stopped without medical supervision.

Dosage & Administration of Zolium 0.5mg Tablet

The recommended initial dose of Zolium 0.5 (Alprazolam) is 0.25 to 0.5 mg three times daily. Depending on the individual's response, the dose may be increased at intervals of 3 to 4 days in increments of no more than 1 mg per day. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 4 mg. In some cases of panic disorder, patients may require higher doses, up to 10 mg per day, but this should be done under close supervision with periodic reassessment.

Dosage should be tailored to each patient to achieve the maximum therapeutic effect with the lowest possible dose. If side effects occur at the starting dose, the dose may be lowered. When discontinuing therapy, the dose should be gradually reduced by no more than 0.5 mg every three days.

For elderly patients or those with advanced liver disease, the usual starting dose is 0.25 mg, two or three times daily, and it may be gradually increased if needed and tolerated.

Zolium 0.5 (Alprazolam) 1 mg should be administered once daily, preferably in the morning, for patients who are on multiple dosage regimens of Alprazolam 0.25/0.5 mg. The tablets should be taken intact and should not be chewed, crushed, or broken. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage and administration instructions provided by the healthcare provider.
