The medicine you have mentioned is for anxiety. Need case details to help further. Advise her gently to not self medicate but consult a mental health specialist immediately.

Alprazolam is not prescribed for either Schizophrenia or Depression. Patients tend to increase dose on their own eventually if not carefully monitored. It should not be prescribed for long time. Kindly consultant a professional.
