If an HRT patient is prescribed HGH injections, they will typically be given a pen-like device (similar to the one used for diabetes to the left) that contains the medication.
Sometimes a standard syringe is used. The patient will inject the HGH into their abdomen, thigh, or upper arm using the pen or syringe. The injection should be given at the same time each day.
It is essential to follow the instructions we provide to you carefully when injecting HGH. Do not inject more HGH than prescribed, and do not inject it into any other area of the body. HGH injections can rarely, but sometimes, cause side effects, such as:
- Pain at the injection site
- Redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
If you experience any of these side effects, contact us right away. Your health is our top concern!
HGH is a sterile medication that is free of bacteria and other microorganisms. It is vital to take HGH sterilely to prevent the spread of infection.
Here are some sterility precautions that should be taken when administering HGH:
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before and after handling HGH.
- Use a sterile syringe and needle or approved pen device to inject HGH.
- Do not reuse needles or syringes.
- Dispose of needles and syringes in a sharps container.
- Keep HGH in a cool, dry place.
If you have any questions about HGH sterility precautions, call us immediately.
Here are some additional tips for taking HGH:
- As we mentioned, administer your HGH at the same time each day.
- Do not mix HGH with other medications.
- If you experience any side effects, stop taking HGH and contact us.
HGH is a safe and effective medication when taken as directed. However, it is crucial to follow sterility precautions to prevent the spread of infection, especially for patients with immune system irregularities like you.
