Genotropin Administration and Instructions for Use

Genotropin Administration

Genotropin HGH is a prescription medication for the treatment of human growth hormone deficiency. Genotropin administration is subcutaneous, meaning under the skin. Do not inject Genotropin intravenously.

Adults with declined growth hormone production may benefit from Genotropin HGH to reverse any symptoms associated with this condition. Genotropin use in adults should always be prescribed and supervised by an experienced hormone specialist.

This Genotropin guide contains useful information about HGH therapy for adults, including:

  • Where to Inject Genotropin – HGH administration is to the abdominal area. Choose a location slightly above and to the left or right of the belly button, alternating sides each day.
  • When to Inject Genotropin – Genotropin HGH may be administrated first thing in the morning or before bed. Taking your Genotropin daily dose in the morning often provides increased energy for the day. Injecting Genotropin before bed gives it time to work the way HGH naturally does during sleep. Discuss the options with your hormone advisor to determine which best suits your needs.
  • Genotropin Storage – Store Genotropin HGH in the refrigerator. Place the Genotropin Pen in its protective case for storage. The Genotropin MiniQuick may be stored unmixed at room temperature up to three months.

Determining Genotropin Dosage

The doctor will determine your Genotropin dosage after reviewing your blood test and physical exam results. The level of severity of your symptoms will also be considered. How much Genotropin to use is typically weight based, utilizing height, age, gender, and blood level results in the process.

Some people may begin with a lower Genotropin dosage. Adults over 60 or those with underlying health problems may start out with a lower dose. Dosing will then increase slowly until the desired amount of HGH is reached. The doctor will monitor the individual to avoid adverse reactions.

A weight-based regimen is also counter-indicated for those individuals who are dealing with obesity. The higher calculated dosage of HGH could increase the risk of side effects. The doctor will likely start out with a lower Genotropin dose.

The dose of HGH may be decreased if Genotropin administration leads to any adverse reactions. The dosage change allows the body to reverse the side effects and stabilize the increased growth hormone levels. After that, the doctor will gradually increase the Genotropin HGH dosage back to the prescribed amount.

Step by Step Genotropin Administration Instructions

Before administering Pfizer Genotropin, how to use instructions begin with these warnings:

  • Gather all supplies to a clean work area
  • Examine Genotropin for discoloration, particles, crystals, and expiration date – do not use if any of these issues are present
  • Wash hands with soap and water and dry with a clean towel

The overall Genotropin route of administration is the same. You will always clean the injection site with a fresh alcohol swab and allow to air dry before proceeding.
