What is Genotropin?

  • Post author:

Human growth hormone, also known as HGH, is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and regulated by the hypothalamus – both of which are located at the base of the brain. Like other hormones, HGH production generally peaks in your early years, but slows down as you age.

In children, human growth hormone plays a major role in growth and development, especially in the growth of cartilage and bone. As you grow older, HGH has less of an effect on stature and growth, but more of an effect on metabolism and body composition. Either way, HGH is vital.

While HGH is a natural growth hormone produced by the body, many people take a synthetic form of human growth hormone (recombinant HGH) – such as treatment with Genotropin. These injections contain somatropin, which has the same structure as human growth hormone produced by the body.

What Does Genotropin Treat?

Genotropin is produced by Pfizer, a company we should all be well-aware of by now. It was approved by the FDA in the early 2000s to treat children and adults living with abnormal growth hormone levels. Since its approval, Genotropin has helped many people live a normal life.

Let’s first take a look at some of the reasons why children might need a Genotropin prescription:

  • They’re not producing enough growth hormone and need to treat growth failure.
  • They have Turner Syndrome, a chromosomal error in girls that can affect growth.
  • They aren’t growing properly due to chronic renal (kidney) insufficiency.
  • Patients with Prader-Willi syndrome.
  • They were born light or small out of the womb and need to catch up growth.

The FDA also approved Genotropin for adult growth hormone deficiency (GHD). Some common symptoms of HGH deficiency in adults are rapid weight gain, severe breathing problems, severe abdominal pain, joint pain, extreme fatigue, difficulty focusing, less muscle, depressed mood, and reduced bone density.

Let’s also take a look at some of the reasons why people might take Genotropin recreationally:

  • Improve athletic performance, including energy and strength.
  • Increase muscle mass and bone density.
  • Reduce body fat and weight, especially around the waist.
  • Slow down the natural aging process – look and feel younger.

As you can see, there are a number of reasons why people take Genotropin and there are a variety of ways to get it – whether it be with a prescription or a trusted distributor like HGHMeds. You can also find other quality HGH brands, such as Norditropin, Humatrope, and Omnitrope.


How Long Does Genotropin Stay In Your System?

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, also known as the DEA, human growth hormone has a short circulating half-life of about 20-30 minutes in the body – though its biological half-life is anywhere from 9-17 hours as a result of its indirect effects on the body.

Of course, the amount of time it takes Genotropin to leave the body largely depends on the individual’s metabolism, health status, HGH dosage, frequency of use, and much more. It’s common for everyone to have a unique experience when taking human growth hormone.

How Much Does Genotropin Cost?

For those that are interested in buying Genotropin injections, the cost will vary depending on how and where you buy it. For example, people can save money by purchasing HGH through a trusted distributor (like HGHMeds), opposed to buying it at a pharmacy with a prescription.

At HGHMeds, we generally have three options available when purchasing Genotropin – let’s take a closer look:

  • 5.3mg / 16IU GoQuick Pen for $300
  • 5.3mg / 16IU GoQuick Pen (4-pack, 64IU total) for $1,300
  • 12mg / 36IU GoQuick Pen (5-pack, 180IU total) for $3,000

Our Genotropin injections come equipped with two different compartments – one for the HGH and one for the bacteriostatic waste. When you twist the injection pen, the two compartments mix together – creating a ready-to-use solution. This makes it great for traveling and shipping.



Which is Better? Genotropin vs Norditropin

Genotropin and Norditropin are both quality, pharmacy-grade, FDA-approved, synthetic forms of HGH. The main differences between the two are the manufacturer, the dose, the cost, and the injectable pen design. At the end of the day, it’ll come down to preference and personal desire.

At HGHMeds, we have 5.3mg (16IU) and 12mg (36IU) GoQuick Pens available by Genotropin. As for Norditropin, we sell 10mg (30IU) and 15mg (45IU) FlexPro Pens. Genotropin, like we mentioned above, is made by Pfizer, while Norditropin is manufactured by Novo Nordisk.

It’s also important to note that our Genotropin pens mix the bacteriostatic waste with the HGH solvent at the time of use, while our Norditropin pens are pre-mixed. Norditropin is by far our best-selling and most popular HGH injectable pen, but that’s not to say Genotropin isn’t worth it.

How to Get Pharmacy-Grade HGH

There are multiple ways to get pharmacy-grade HGH, but it will largely depend on your need or reasoning for using HGH. Those with a medical need for HGH injections (HGH deficiency) will go to a doctor and receive a prescription for it – which they can pick up at their local pharmacy.

On the other hand, those that want to use HGH to improve athletic performance or anti-aging reasons can bypass the need for a prescription and purchase high-quality, FDA-approved HGH injections from HGHMeds.com – the same brands you’d be getting from your local pharmacy.
