The benefits of sermorelin therapy generally outweigh its risks or side effects in men who qualify for its use.
Sermorelin is a prescription medication used to treat certain patients with growth hormone deficiency. Sermorelin is FDA approved for the treatment of growth hormone deficiencies in adult males and, as such, is generally regarded as safe. In most circumstances, when used as directed, the benefits of sermorelin injections far outweigh its potential risks.
In fact, generally speaking, sermorelin therapy tends o have fewer side effects than HGH injections; this is just one of its advantages over HGH injections in those that qualify. Still, as in all drugs or medical procedures, sermorelin has some potential risks and side effects.
Risks Associated with Sermorelin Therapy
Sermorelin is prescribed for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency in men, women, and children. That includes for the treatment of “age-related” or “adult-onset” growth hormone deficiency in men.
Sermorelin works by enhancing your body’s natural ability to produce and release HGH. Depending on your symptoms and degree of age-related HGH decline, for many men, sermorelin is a viable, and lower-cost alternative to HGH injections. Most men treated with sermorelin receive great benefit and have few, if any, side effects. However, like any drug, sermorelin has a list required by the FDA of potential risks, side effects, and contraindications.
What Are the Most Common Side Effects of Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is generally regarded as safe and has few serious side effects. The most common side effect is redness, swelling, or inflammation at the injection site. Other common side effects reported for sermorelin include the following:

What Are the Rare Side Effects of Sermorelin?

Most of our patients taking sermorelin go through the course of their sermorelin therapy with few, if any, side effects. Side effects or problems with sermorelin almost always occur when it is taken other than as indicated or without proper medical supervision.
The most common side effects from sermorelin – such as itching, rash, or hives – occur because you are likely allergic to it or some of the other ingredients in the injection or because of interaction with other medications you may be taking. So, be sure that you tell your doctor about any allergies you may have or other medications you are on before accepting a prescription for sermorelin.
Other than allergies or drug interactions, the other reason why you are most likely to experience sermorelin side effects is if you are using it illegally or not taking it in the way it was prescribed for you. Always follow your doctor’s instructions on when and how to use sermorelin. Do not reuse needles. Follow proper sanitary precautions for taking your injections and never take sermorelin that may have been prescribed for someone else, and only take your dose as it has been prescribed for you.
Do the Side Effects of Sermorelin Outweigh its Benefits?
For the majority of male patients with age-related HGH loss, the benefits of sermorelin therapy far outweigh any potential risks or side effects. Sermorelin has been well studied, and numerous clinical trials have proven its safety and efficacy for treating men with age-related growth hormone deficiency.
In fact, generally speaking, for qualifying patients, sermorelin therapy can deliver many of the same benefits as HGH injections at a lower cost and few potential side effects of growth hormone replacement.
The benefits of sermorelin therapy for men who qualify for its use include:
- Increased strength and stamina
- Improved sexual performance
- Increased ability to build lean muscle
- Reduction of body fat and weight loss
- Better sleep
- Improved mood
- Improvements in focus and cognition
Why Do You Need a Prescription to Buy Sermorelin?
You absolutely need a prescription to legally purchase sermorelin in the United States. It is a controlled substance and, as such, only available with a doctor’s prescription. You cannot legally purchase sermorelin without an actual diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency and a legitimate doctor’s prescription. Doing so is not only illegal, it could be hazardous to your health. The chances of experiencing the risks and side effects of sermorelin listed on this page go up 100% if you buy it illegally or use it without proper medical supervision.
Is it Safe to Buy Sermorelin From Foreign Websites?
It is a very bad idea to buy sermorelin, or any prescription drug for that matter, from foreign websites. The sermorelin or HGH you can buy on the so-called black market is totally unregulated. These products may not even be sermorelin at all, or they can contain hazardous ingredients or fillers.
Genuine sermorelin is a complicated long-chain peptide. When it is legitimately made in proper pharmaceutical labs, it is expertly designed to exactly match the HGH-releasing factors normally made by your own body. These labs are FDA regulated and held to exacting standards.
There are no such regulations in foreign labs in China and India where black market sermorelin or HGH comes from. Few, if any, of these labs have the equipment nor the knowledge to create the full and proper protein sequences to create genuine and safe sermorelin or HGH.
Such products should be avoided. Not only is it illegal to purchase these black market HGH drugs, but using them could be quite hazardous to your health. It is not uncommon for the use of such black market sermorelin or HGH to result in death.
The surest way to guarantee you are mitigating the possible risks of sermorelin therapy and getting all of the potential benefits is to only get your sermorelin injections from an experienced and trusted source such as the HGH for Men Clinic.
