How to get a Prescription For Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Injections

How Do I Get a Prescription for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Injections?

Human growth hormone (HGH) injections are used to treat children and adults medically diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. HGH injections can only be obtained via a doctor’s prescription. We can take you through the step by step process of how to get a prescription for HGH injections.

There are many myths and misconceptions about human growth hormone. It is true that HGH injections have many positive benefits that can improve your health and quality of life. However, growth hormone injections can only legally be prescribed for people who are legitimately suffering from a growth hormone deficiency, or GHD. GHD can only be properly diagnosed by your doctor, and only then, by running some very specific HGH blood tests. Once a diagnosis of GHD is confirmed via those tests, your doctor will be able to give you a prescription for human growth hormone injections.

The only way you can achieve the many benefits of growth hormone therapy is via a prescription for HGH injections. Any product that you see for sale on the internet, advertised in “muscle magazines,” or even on the shelves of a vitamin store, that claims to be HGH, or contain growth hormone, cannot legally contain any actual human growth hormone.

Getting a Legal Prescription for Human Growth Hormone

HGH is a controlled pharmaceutical, just like any other prescription medication. Just as a doctor could not, or would not, write a prescription for insulin for a person who was not suffering from diabetes, there must be a legitimate “medical need” to obtain a legal prescription for HGH injections.

A prescription for HGH injections involves the use of injections of synthetic growth hormone. We use the word “synthetic” because it is made in a lab, but it is “real” human growth hormone. Before we had the kind of sophisticated medical technology we have today, HGH used for growth hormone injections, had to be extracted from the pituitary glands of cadavers. Now, we can literally manufacture HGH using recombinant human DNA. The HGH made this way is identical in every way to the growth hormone produced by your body.

But again, you can only obtain a prescription for HGH injections from a doctor, and only then, after he or she runs tests to determine if you are growth hormone deficient.

What Tests Are Done Before Getting a Growth Hormone Prescription?

If you are looking into a prescription for HGH, you are probably a man or woman, over the age of 40, and have been exhibiting some of the symptoms of age related growth hormone deficiency. The signs of adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency (GHD) include:

  • Weight gain, even when eating right and exercising
  • Muscle loss
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Poor sleep
  • Sexual health issues
  • Foggy thinking or other cognitive issues
  • Reduced skin health

Even if you see a doctor exhibiting these kinds of symptoms, it is unlikely that he or she will just simply write you a prescription for human growth hormone.

HGH prescriptions are very strictly regulated. Your doctor will need to take a complete medical history and physical exam, which will then be followed with a specialized blood test to check for your HGH level.

Only a well-qualified physician who specializes in hormone replacement therapy, should prescribe your growth hormone treatment. This way you can be sure your HGH prescription will be the safest and most effective for your particular needs and lifestyle.

What Tests Are Done Before Getting a Growth Hormone Prescription?

Prescription HGH is known by many names and comes in many different forms. Some of the most common growth hormone prescriptions are:

  • Genotropin
  • Omnitrope
  • Norditropin
  • Humatrope
  • Saizen

Basically the difference between all of these growth hormone prescriptions has to do with their dosages, how you prepare and take them, and their relative costs. All are injections, however some HGH prescriptions use traditional medical syringes and others use pre-dosed injectable pens. Your HGH prescriber will decide which is best for you.

These and other similar prescription HGH formulas, made and distributed by various legitimate pharmaceutical companies, are the only HGH prescription medications that are officially allowed to be legally imported, distributed, and sold in the United States.

Can Any Doctor Prescribe Human Growth Hormone?

Any kind of doctor can write you a prescription for growth hormone. However, it is highly recommended that you get a prescription for HGH from a medical professional whose practice is dedicated to hormone replacement therapy. Not only will such a physician be able to provide you with the most accurate testing of your growth hormone level, and provide you with the most effective HGH prescription, he or she will also be able to evaluate your other hormones. All hormones in your body interact and work together. If you are suffering from a growth hormone deficiency, there is a good chance that you may be deficient in other critical hormones such as testosterone. Many people who are given a prescription for growth hormone, are also prescribed testosterone therapy, and benefit greatly from the combined therapies.

Why Can’t I Buy Human Growth Hormone Injections Online?

You cannot buy actual growth hormone online. You can only obtain real human growth hormone with a doctor’s prescription, which then must be obtained from a licensed pharmacy, just like any other prescription medication. Any product being sold online, that can be purchased without a prescription, that claims to be “HGH,” or to contain HGH, or growth hormone, cannot by law, contain any human growth hormone. These products may have ingredients such as proteins and amino acids that they claim can “stimulate your body to produce more HGH,” but most such claims are unsubstantiated. Furthermore, like all supplements, any “HGH supplement” is not tested or regulated by the FDA, which means they can make any claims they wish, and such claims are not verified by any independent review. The only FDA approved method to treat growth hormone deficiency, is with a prescription for one of the growth hormone medications listed above.

This having all been said, you may be able to work with a growth hormone clinic that can refer you to an online pharmacy that may fill your growth hormone prescription. However, understand that you will still have to go through the very same procedures of seeing a doctor, having your blood tested, and obtaining a prescription for growth hormone, but, you may just be able to save a little money having your HGH prescription filled on line.

It is very important that you understand this difference. While there may be the possibility of having your HGH prescription filled online, you cannot, under any circumstances buy HGH online or anywhere else for that matter, without a doctor’s prescription. Also realize that actual growth hormone therapy is only prescribed as an injection. Any product that you can buy online without a prescription claiming to be HGH, in pill, spray, powder, or anything other than an injection, is not HGH at best, and may be a total scam at worst.

Why Can’t I Buy Human Growth Hormone Injections Online?

If all of this is making it sound very difficult to buy HGH, relax, it does not have to be. We are only saying that for your own health and safety, you should obtain your HGH from a qualified and legitimate source. If you are really in need of an HGH prescription, our doctors and staff can actually make the process very easy for you!

How Much Will a Prescription for HGH Injections Cost?

People always ask us, “How much do HGH injections cost?” That is not really such an easy question to answer. Everybody’s needs for HGH is different. Everybody’s symptoms of growth hormone deficiency are different. There is no “one size fits all” prescription for growth hormone injections. Growth hormone injections must be individualized. Even once you have been given a legitimate doctor’s prescription for one of the legal HGH injections such as Genotropin, Norditropin, Saizen, or Humatrope, you will find that the price to get the prescription filled can vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. HGH injections are prescribed in injection units, or IUs. The price per IU of the brand name HGH also varies. That all having been said, you should expect the cost to be anywhere from 18.00 to 25.00 an IU of HGH.

Most growth hormone prescriptions are for a daily HGH injection of anywhere from 3 to 5 IUs. When considering the cost of filling your prescription for HGH injections, you need to consider:

  • The dosage of your HGH prescription
  • The brand of prescription HGH
  • Where you have the HGH injection prescription filled
  • What are the ingredients or “level of quality” of the particular brand of HGH?

The bottom line on cost is, we believe that no one should be “priced out” of a therapy that could be life changing. Our staff will work with you, to find the best possible growth hormone prescription to fit your medical needs and your budget.
