What to Know about Sermorelin Side Effects
Relatively few Sermorelin side effects exist when doctors prescribe this medication is used for the treatment of adult growth hormone deficiency. Women and men concerned about low growth hormone levels will find that contacting a hormone replacement specialist – a physician with advanced experience in the field of hormone balancing – is the best option for both diagnostic testing and treatment. Consulting with a specialist is the best way to avoid adverse reactions from Sermorelin.
When compared with Sermorelin, HGH side effects have a higher risk of occurrence, although even then, most people receiving human growth hormones will also never notice any unwanted reactions from treatment. Although both Sermorelin and HGH come with a decreased risk of side effects, Sermorelin is, by far, the safer of the two therapies used to treat low GH levels.
As with HGH injections, the most common Sermorelin therapy side effects happen near the injection site. These issues are most likely to occur in the early treatment stages when a person is getting used to giving himself or herself a shot. The following injection site symptoms could occur at this time:
These reactions are short-lived and typically subside with increased practice at self-administration of the Sermorelin injections.
Most Common Sermorelin Side Effects
It is extremely rare for a person to experience other Sermorelin acetate side effects, especially following blood analysis that shows a true need for this medication. The HRT specialist carefully calculates dosages for hormone replacement to reduce the potential for any problems.
The injection site issues mentioned above are the most common side effects. Sermorelin therapy is extremely safe, but, in rare cases, could cause additional reactions, including the following:
- Hives – allergic reaction
- Difficulty swallowing – allergic reaction
- Changes in taste
- Chest tightness
- Pale skin
It is exceedingly rare for anyone to experience these symptoms from using Sermorelin. Growth hormone side effects, although also minimal, may include carpal tunnel syndrome, edema, joint and muscle pains, and high cholesterol if too much HGH is administered over an extended timespan.
If any adverse or unwanted reactions do occur while using Sermorelin, directly contact the doctor to discuss these changes. The HRT specialist will determine if the dosage of Sermorelin should be lowered, stopped, or modified in any way – or if the symptoms are such that they will go away on their own as the body passes through an adjustment period.
How to Avoid Side Effects from Sermorelin
Each person has the power to minimize the potential for any Sermorelin long-term side effects simply by using this medication only as prescribed by a hormone specialist. Treating hormone replacement the same way as you would mending a bone or performing surgery – with an experienced specialist – is the best way to ensure a positive outcome.
The next way to avoid any Sermorelin injections side effects is to report any unexpected changes to the physician as soon as possible. Other than minor injection site irritations which are typically expected for a person who has never administered his or her own shot, additional symptoms are important to share with the doctor.
Up next on our way to prevent unwanted problems is how and where you buy your medication. Sermorelin is a prescription-only treatment that requires physician authorization. Unfortunately, both Sermorelin and HGH are highly counterfeited products that thrive on the black market. You may be surprised to learn that there are over 11,000 websites selling medications online, but only about 4% of them are in complete accord with pharmaceutical prescribing and dispensing guidelines. Your chances of happening across one of the 4% are rather small, and this is where the biggest risk of Sermorelin side effects occurs.
Buying a medication online from an unregulated source with a prescription is like playing Russian roulette with your health. You have no way of knowing if what you are about to inject into your body is safe to use or if it will land you in the hospital. The best advice we can give is to find a reputable hormone replacement therapy clinic for both diagnosis and treatment.
