Brief Answer: Dosage Detailed Answer: Hi, Sildenafil is available in dosages of 50 mg and 100 mg. Initially it should be started in low dosages. Taken half an hour before sexual act. Serlift contains Serteraline hydrochloride which is given in major psychiatric disorders. There are many alternatives available such as amytryptillne. But discuss with our psychiatrist before taking it. Thanks
