Experience with Peptides?

My doctor offers Sermorelin and GHRP-2. I was considering trying it out but have never used any peptides. Mostly I am just looking to improve sleep and recovery, both of which the Dr. claims the peptides will help with. I am also looking at Ipamorelin (not offered by my Dr.) which seems to be the safest GHRP in terms of sides. Has anyone tried these particular peptides or others?

I do 1000mcg Sermorelin + 500mcg Ipamorelin in 3 month cycles. 3 months on 3 months off.
I have almost doubled my IGF-1. It is very slow and I did not really feel much while taking it but bloods don’t lie. I experienced no bad side effects at all.

Do you split your injections?

I am not sure what you mean. I do two injections with a 31 ga 5/16 easy touch needle subQ each night at bedtime anywhere around the waist band. Pull up a wad of skin and poke it in. So easy Zero pain. I have read you do not want to mix even just before injecting peptides are very fragile.
If you don’t mind what is your age? I ask because Sermorelin is said to not work on guys over 60.

I’m 37. I meant do you inject the entire dose at one time or split it between 2 or more injections given at different times of the day. Sorry, I should have been more clear in my question.

I have never tried spliting the dose. All at once at bedtime was easyist for me. I am not sure but I don’t think you can OD on this stuff.
As I understand it It just sends your pituitary gland a signal to make more GH. Since it is next to impossible to accurately measure GH we look at IGF-1 and prey I guess, haha
