Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a substance that is naturally produced by the pituitary gland. This gland is located in the brain, and is primarily responsible for growing body tissues. As people age, the production of HGH slows down. Although some companies claim taking HGH can preserve youth; according to the Mayo Clinic, there isn't any evidence to support these claims. However, some individuals may suffer from deficiencies in this substance, and need to take injectable HGH. With a prescription, this supplement is available online; making it more convenient to access. But, before purchasing -- it helps to have a few tips.
- Skill level:
Ask for an HGH prescription. The first step in purchasing this supplement is visiting your doctor to discuss your symptoms. Those with this condition may experience: high anxiety levels, unexplained reductions in muscle mass and issues with thinning skin. After evaluating your symptoms, and providing an exam, your doctor will write you a prescription for HGH.
Check with your insurance company about coverage. Injectable HGH is very expensive, costing over a thousand dollars for each injection. Call your insurance company before sending your prescription to an online pharmacy to check for coverage.
Contact an online pharmacy (see Resources). There are many online pharmacies that fill HGH prescriptions. If you don't have a prescription with the pharmacy, you'll need to fax the prescription to the pharmacy, or your doctor will need to call it into the pharmacy. In addition, you'll need to fax a copy of your insurance card (if you have insurance).
Talk with a pharmacist about injecting HGH. If you haven't injected this supplement before, make sure to talk with a pharmacist. Even if you purchase the prescription online, a pharmacist is available by phone to discuss how to properly administer this medication. Or, you can call your doctor's office, and ask that a medical assistant help you administer for the first time.
Tips and warnings
- Discuss your medical history with your doctor. When visiting your doctor, make sure to discuss if you have a family history of heart disease. The Mayo Clinic explains that taking HGH may boost your chances of getting heart disease.
- Watch for possible side effects. HGH has side effects which include pain in the muscles, swelling of the legs, and joint pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately.
