How to Mix HGH Solution before Use

How to Mix HGH

A vial of HGH contains human growth hormones in a lyophilized (freeze-dried powder) form. Once reconstituted, the HGH solution is extremely fragile and has a relatively short shelf life. That is why a new vial is prepared only when ready for use.

Somatropin HGH is stored in the refrigerator both before and after reconstitution. When you are ready to get started with how to mix HGH, you will begin by gathering the following supplies and placing them on a clean, flat working surface such as a counter or table:

  • Vial of lyophilized HGH powder
  • Vial of mixing solution – bacteriostatic (sterile) water
  • Alcohol wipes
  • 3 mL mixing syringe with 25 gauge needle
  • Sharps needle disposal container

Here are the instructions for how to mix HGH somatropin when supplied in a vial:

  • 1. Wash hands with water and soap and use a clean towel for drying
  • 2. Taking each vial one at a time, carefully lift off and remove the cap
  • 3. Open a fresh alcohol wipe and swab the tops of the two vials
  • 4. Remove a new 3 mL mixing syringe from its package and check to see that the 25 gauge needle is securely in place
  • 5. Uncap the needle, setting the cap aside for reuse after you mix HGH with water
  • 6. Insert the needle tip into the top of the rubber stopper of the vial of bacteriostatic water and slowly pull back on the syringe plunger drawing out 3 mL of water into the syringe before pulling the needle out of the rubber stopper

The next instructions are for how to mix HGH and water together:

  • 7. Take the filled 3 mL syringe and insert the needle into the top of the HGH vial
  • 8. Holding the HGH vial in your other hand, angle it slightly so that the bacteriostatic solution runs down the side of the glass as you gently push in the plunger
  • 9. Once the syringe is empty, carefully remove the needle from the vial and set the HGH vial down on the counter
  • 10. Recap the needle, twist it off the syringe, and discard the needle in the Sharps container and the empty syringe in the trash
  • 11. Carefully pick up the HGH vial and check to see if the HGH powder has dissolved completely – if not, gently swirl the vial or roll it between your palms until all crystals and particles have dissolved

The HGH solution is now ready for use.

Questions about Mixing HGH

Here are some commonly asked questions about how to mix and administer HGH injections:

  • How do I know how to mix and measure HGH so I get the right dosage of medication?

Your instructions for use will include complete mixing and dosing instructions. After completing the mixing of the HGH powder as explained above, you will then use a 3/10 cc insulin syringe to inject the medication. Here are some guidelines for filling the syringe based on the HGH dosage prescribed:

  • A 1 IU dose is filled to the 7.5 unit mark
  • A 1.5 IU dose should reach the 11 unit mark
  • A 2 IU dose fills to the 15 unit mark

Always fill the syringe a little more than the correct dose while you check for air bubbles and then release them back into the vial. You will then ensure that you are at the right mark for your HGH dose.

  • Is there a special method for how to mix and store HGH safely?

After mixing as described above, return the HGH vial to its package and place in a secure location in the refrigerator. Ensure that it is out of reach of children and not in a spot where it can be knocked over or fall out.
