Buying HGH Injections Online? Be Careful!
By Lisa Wells, RN
There are sites that claim they can sell you HGH injections (Somatropin) and you either do not need a prescription or they will obtain a prescription for you, without you ever seeing a doctor. Of course their prescription is only good for buying their product.
There are now also web sites based outside the United States that will let you place an online order for what appears to be name brand Somatropin without needing a prescription.
They will let you place the order but after you place the order you have to provide them with a legitimate prescription. If you don't have a prescription then you have just given them that money (their cheapest injection product is over $600 and they don't give refunds).
On their FAQ page they do state that you need a prescription and that there are no refunds but you have to search to find this information. Some people probably place their orders first and then find their policy after it's too late. In my opinion a reputable company would clearly inform the customer that a prescription is required in order for the injections to be shipped at the beginning of the ordering process so those without a prescription would not place an order. To me this seems to be a setup where they can make lots of money without having to ship any products.
Medical Professionals Were Involved
Many times over the past 22 years we have received emails from manufacturers in China and other countries wanting us to buy their injections and sell them through our web site. We refused because it's illegal and because it is dangerous to take the injections without being managed by an experienced doctor.
As a registered nurse of many years I consider it a shame if some medical professionals are involved in selling the injections either online or in the office to people who do not need them because they should know of the possible dangers. Also, these types of practices go against the obligations and responsibilities of good medical practice and the oaths we swore when we accepted our licenses.
However, with the past raids on pharmacies and clinics selling human growth hormone injections illegally online it seems that some physicians wrote prescriptions for human growth hormone injections to anyone who could pay the price without ever meeting or examining the patients. The patients were also not instructed on how to properly reconstitute and administer what they purchased. I consider practicing medicine in this fashion as unethical as well as dangerous to the patient.
If You Purchase HGH Injections Online
Some buyers have purchased what they are told is human growth hormone injections only to receive vials that contain no label at all! Injecting oneself with a substance from an unlabeled vial is very risky.
Even if the product has a brand name label it still may be fake. You cannot be sure of what is actually in the vial, ampule, or pen device even though it may appear unopened and authentic.
Containers and labels are easily copied and reproduced so just because you receive an unopened container that says Somatropin, Humatrope, Norditropin, Protropin, Jintropin, etc., don't assume you have the real thing.
Also, if the price is much less than the usual price of the legitimate injections purchased at your local pharmacy there is a very good chance the product is not authentic. After all, human growth hormone injections are expensive and online sellers cannot go to Eli Lily, Genentech, etc., and buy them at a deep discount, and they certainly aren't going to sell them for less than they paid for them. Their main goal is to make profit and they would make no profit if they sold real HGH injections at a discounted price.
There are also some products that are passed off as the real thing but the ingredients do not even require a prescription. Some of these products might possibly contain a homeopathic form of HGH as is found in some sublingual sprays however homeopathic human growth hormone does not require injection but can be taken successfully under the tongue.
One should use their good common sense when considering purchasing the injections online. If your doctor tells you that you need to take HGH injections he should write you a prescription that you can fill at your local pharmacy or you should be able to buy them at your doctor's office.
Questions About Buying Injectable HGH
Below are questions that were asked in our old forums, along with the responses.
Question: I have a question. Where are these sites that you can get real injectable hgh off of? I have been trying to find one for so long with no luck.
Answer: I know of no web sites where you can order authentic human growth hormone injections without seeing a doctor.
There used to be web sites where one could purchase the injections. These sites had doctors who would write the prescription without ever examining the patients. This practice was stopped by "Operation Which Doctor" in 2007 as the feds raided the pharmacies who were supplying the drugs and arrested the doctors who were writing the prescriptions.
You may find a few web sites that still profess to offer the injections and if they say the item is in stock they will take your money. However, they are based outside the U.S. and in their policies they state that it is your responsibility to obtain a prescription before they will ship the item you purchased to you. If you cannot obtain a prescription they will not refund your money, and if the package gets confiscated by customs that's too bad.
Question: Hi. I feel I am thinking the same as alot of people my age mid 20's. I have done as much research as possible and been trying to gain some muscle and mass, not much just enuff to shift my beer belly and man boobs!
I have made up my mind about taking HGH jintropin or somatropin. I found a few sites that claim to sell the product, I would like to know does anyone have solid facts about a site that does not scam ...by this I mean, has anyone bought this stuff online and had it delivered with no dramas?
I'm going to look at ordering very soon from a site that I feel is legit ! and if successful I shall document my use and gains - along with any other powders and proteins I use! I shall also post pictures and video's of the cycle.
So please if anyone knows a 100% legit site before I go and take my chances let me know, if not depending on my order and success, won't be too long before u hear from me again.
Answer: First, I must say that in my opinion you are too young to consider taking growth hormone injections without the management of a qualified physician. Your doctor would check your levels and if hormone replacment of HGH is needed he/she could prescribe it.
Now, concerning your question, I don't know of any web sites that are legitimately offering the injections, since they require a prescription.
Ever since Operation Which Doctor they have been more difficult to obtain without seeing a doctor in person and having him/her write a prescription, and the doctors who write the prescriptions usually sell the injections themselves in their office.
There are some web sites outside the U.S. that will allow you to pay for an order of the injections online but they won't mail it to you without a prescription, and they won't refund your money if you cannot get one, so beware!
Comment from another member: Hi, I am new here and wanted to reply to your question. There is no reason someone in their 20's should need HGH injections. You already secrete plenty, the problem is getting use of what you secrete.
I have injected HGH for the past 6 years. 90 ius over a 90 day period, then off the rest of the year. I have had the same contact/supplier for 6 years without ever having a problem.
I am currently 50 years old, 5'11" 175 lbs BMI of 25 reflex of 28 year old - total overall lean muscle mass "Optimal". I go to my Dr every year and have all the blood work done. HGH took me from a 196 lb fat ass down to 175 in three months, increased lean muscle mass basically ripped me up....without EVER lifting 1 pound of weights!! I do 200 push-ups and 200 crunches every morning along with 200 squats at night.
You are too young to need HGH. Suggest you pay close attention to the warnings and try looking up in the New England Med Journal there is a ton of info on the web. Pay close attention to the side affects taking HGH at such a young age. In fact there is not a Dr around who would give you a script, if you are under 30.
You want a legit prescription? Tell your Dr you want an HGH and testosterone level blood test, if you are low they WILL give you a legal script for the injections of HGH and testosterone but I can almost assure you will not be low. Take care!
