selank reviewThe generally accepted daily dosage range is anywhere from between 250 mcg to 3 mg.
Of course, you should always start with the lowest effective dose and then work your way up, if needed at all, in a very thoughtful, slow, and controlled fashion.
It is also thought that this supplement is very benign and that doses even up to 500 times that of the effective range have been shown to be well tolerated by the human body.
