Dosage & Injecting Instructions
1: HGH Dosage:
If somatropin was prescribed to you by a doctor follow his dosage instructions. If you are self prescribing/administering the general dosage guidelines are as follows:
- 2 IU per day is used for anti aging purposes. You can inject it any time of the day or a full or empty stomach – it does not matter. It might be the most beneficial to take it in the morning, or at least a few hours before bedtime because the body releases its own endogenous growth hormone after a person falls asleep. Injecting before bedtime might reduce the body’s own release – robbing you of a free bonus dose.
- 4 IU per day is usually used by athletes for bodybuilding, fat loss and general fitness. Some people take 6IU per day, however the higher the dose the more annoying the side effects can be. Carpal tunnel syndrome being the side effect which usually forces the athlete to lower the dose or pause the cycle for 2 – 3 weeks until the carpal disappears. It is preferred to spread the daily dose into multiple injections throughout the day. For example 2 IU in the morning and 2 IU in late afternoon.
- 8 to 16 IU per day is used to speed up recovery after severe burns or injuries. This is a pretty high dose and it should not be continued for more than a few weeks. The carpal tunnel syndrome will probably bother the user, but in the name of faster recovery some discomfort may be tolerable.
