Zomacton is the brand name of the medication somatropin, also known as human growth hormone (HGH), manufactured by pharmaceutical company Ferring. Adults suffering from the symptoms of growth hormone deficiency (GHD) will find comprehensive Zomacton therapy details below, including essential facts, indications, contraindications, cost determination, prescribing information, client reviews, and answers to frequently asked questions.
What is Zomacton HGH therapy, and who needs it?
Zomacton is a complex therapy that provides an exogenous supply of human growth hormones when the pituitary gland does not secrete enough growth hormone (GH) each day to meet the body’s needs. Any person who suffers from symptoms of diagnosed low GH levels can benefit from HGH therapy (except in cases of contraindications, as listed below).
How do adults get growth hormone deficiency?
GHD in adults can occur for many reasons, including those listed below:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Tumor in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland
- Treatment with surgery or radiation for a brain tumor
- Opioid or other substance abuse
- Genetic or medical causes
- Some types of medication
- Diminished blood supply to the brain
- Undiagnosed causes (may include lack of sleep, not enough exercise, obesity, aging, stress, and other unknown factors)
Do all adults need HGH therapy?
No, only those who experience multiple symptoms of growth hormone deficiency require treatment.
How do I know if I need Zomacton HGH?
Your body will let you know if you are growth hormone deficient. Please see the indications section below for a list of common symptoms of GHD in adults.
Understanding therapy details provided here can help you determine if this medication is right for you.

Zomacton Injections – types of HGH injections by Ferring
- 5 and 10 mg vials to be used with standard (insulin) syringes and needles
- ZOMA-Jet 10 injector pen – a unique needle-free system
For adults who are afraid of needles, Zomacton therapy with the Zoma-Jet 10, makes this a possible option.
Possible Cost of Therapy
The Zomacton cost depends on the dosage prescribed by the doctor, the frequency of injections, and which treatment option a person selects. The Zoma-Jet 10 costs significantly more than purchasing Zomacton in vials for use with standard syringes and needles.
Other factors to include in the overall cost of HGH therapy include:
- Consultation or office visits
- Physical examination
- Blood tests
- Follow-up visits
Although most insurance companies do not cover the cost of HGH therapy for adults, you may qualify for an assistance program to help with out-of-pocket expenses. Please contact our clinic to learn more about these options, and if you are eligible.
The purchase of Zomacton in the US requires a valid doctor’s prescription. For HGH use, it is best to contact a doctor that specializes in hormone replacement therapy (HRT). A hormone specialist has the advanced knowledge and experience necessary to raise deficient hormone levels safely.
To receive a prescription for Zomacton, adults must have clinically diagnosed low growth hormone levels. The primary assessment for most people is the serum IGF-1 blood test. Measuring insulin growth factor 1 levels is the best option because they remain relatively constant in the bloodstream all day. IGF-1 is a hormone secreted into the blood by the liver based on how much growth hormone it receives. If GH levels are low, the liver will decrease IGF-1 production.
In addition to low IGF-1 levels, a person will also have some of the symptoms of GHD. If there are no symptoms present, then HGH treatment is not necessary, even if GH levels are low.
Why do I have to have a prescription to buy this medicine?
US regulations make it illegal to buy any brand of HGH injections without a prescription. Having proper authorization also lets you know how much HGH you require.
Why do some websites offer Zomacton and other brands of HGH for sale without a prescription?
These companies sell HGH medications illegally. A close look at their websites will show they are not in the US. That also increases the risk of identity theft, fraud, money loss, and receipt of potentially counterfeit and dangerous medications. The only safe place to get real HGH injections is from a licensed US pharmacy.

The stages of treatment with Zomacton begin with the diagnostic process mentioned above. Next comes receipt of the HGH medication, preparation of the initial treatment, and administration of the first injection. We provide support every step of the way.

As treatment progresses, our medical advisors are available by phone or email to review your results. Most people undergo retesting of their blood hormone levels at the six-month mark to assess if dosage changes are necessary.
Through our consultation by phone service, our clients save a significant amount of money over the course of their treatment.

Our medical advisors work closely with each person to select a brand and style of HGH injections that meet their budgetary requirements.
Our Patients Reviews On Zomacton Therapy
I have a pretty high-powered job, and always need to look my best and be at the top of my game. So, when I noticed that I was starting to physically age (wrinkles and thinning hair) and that I was not as energetic or focused as in the past, I knew it was time to get my hormone levels checked. I found your clinic online, and after extensive research, gave you a call, and I am glad I did. Every aspect of treatment and testing is convenient and non-intrusive in my busy life. Best of all are the results I have seen in only two months of treatment with Zomacton. My skin is starting to look firmer and healthier, I have more energy and focus, and am more productive each day than I have been in quite some time.
My wife said I was starting to forget things, was depressed, had no desire to go out anymore, and was losing my interest in life and sex. I hadn’t noticed any of this, but then, that is why she asked me to call your clinic. My talk with one of your medical advisors was extremely informative, and I had no idea how bad my life had become. After going for a local blood test and physical exam, I got the results from your clinic in only a few days. I had low growth hormone levels and needed to start HGH therapy as soon as possible. I selected Zomacton and began treatment a few days later. It took only a few weeks for both my wife and I to start to notice a change in my focus, sleep, energy, and mood. I am looking forward to continuing with this treatment.
I began to gain weight, suffer from joint and muscle aches, and low sex drive about a year ago. My doctor said I should get used to the fact that I was getting older. A friend recommended your clinic and said that he was not willing to “age graciously” as his doctor put it. Everyone at your clinic was so helpful, and I liked having my consultations by phone. Since starting my Zomacton HGH therapy three months ago, I have lost weight, now have better muscle tone, fewer aches, and even my sex life is through the roof.
Common Concerns About Zomacton Therapy
Is Zomacton safe?
Zomacton HGH therapy is safe to use only as prescribed by a hormone specialist. It is not safe to use Zomacton for any purposes other than as indicated. Do not use any brand of HGH injections for anti-aging, sports, or bodybuilding enhancement.
Can it cause cancer?
Zomacton does not cause cancer. However, if a tumor is present, it could increase the cancer cell replication, which is why it is contraindicated in this situation. That is why doctors run numerous blood panels to ensure that a person has no other issues that would render HGH therapy unsafe.
Is Zomacton HGH legal?
Zomacton HGH injections are only legal when purchased from a licensed US pharmacy with a valid doctor’s prescription.
How do I inject it?
Every Zomacton kit comes complete with detailed instructions for use, and we also provide video links and on-phone support. Most people administer their HGH medications subcutaneously to the abdomen.
