Hygetropin side effects

Updated April 17, 2017

Hygetropin is a powerful hormone that is used to prevent ageing and assist in muscle building. Hygetropin is typically injected into a person's body with a needle. Like any drug or injected hormone, there are possible side effects that can impact a person's quality of life and overall health. A person who chooses to use hygetropin should only do so under the supervision of a medical professional.

Joint Swelling

A possible side effect of using hygetropin is joint swelling. The swelling is commonly seen first in the hands, feet and knees. An individual who notices the swelling should keep a close watch on how large the swelling gets. If it stays consistent or lessens, it should not be of concern but if it persistently grows, he or she should reconsider using hygetropin for an extended period of time.

Joint Pain

Along with joint swelling, joint pain can also be a side effect when using hygetropin. The pain begins as minor aches that can progressively grow in intensity. The pain is typically in the hands and knees. The joint pain can be treated with a pain reliever but should be discussed with a doctor to see if any future damage in the joints is possible.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

If the joint pain goes untreated or unmonitored, it can quickly develop into carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is when the median nerve in the wrist becomes pressed causing pain, numbness and weakness in the hand. The symptoms begin slowly and will intensify as the condition lingers. A person may feel tingling in the hand, a weak grip and burning pain in the joints.

Water Retention

Another common side effect when using hygetropin is water retention. If the body retains too much water it is possible to develop swollen feet and ankles, leading to more complex issues. Water retention is a result of water leaking into tissue throughout the body from the blood stream. Some individuals take a water pill to treat this symptom and rid the body of excess water.


Always use hygetropin under the direction of a medial doctor. A person who experiences any side effects can still use hygetropin but may have to reduce the amount given weekly. He or she may have to take other drugs to combat some of the side effects from the hygetropin. In these situations a person must weigh the benefit versus the possible long-term effect.
