Very Basic Dosage Question


Sorry, I realize this is very basic but before I start injecting stuff into my body I want to be sure of what I'm doing. I hope you understand . . .

I've been given a 5mg (15 IU) bottle of Tev-Tropin (Somatropin). I was told to mix it with 2 CCs of B water and then ten take 10 IU of the mixture for a total of 25 injections (5 on 2 off).

So is my dosage of HGH simply 15/25 = 0.6 IU of HGH per injection?

Thanks guys, and again forgive the basic question.


25 injections of hgh will not be enough to make a tangible difference


Thanks, but that doesn't answer my question.

FYI, I will not be stopping after the first 25.


The math is correct, yes.

However, if you are taking 15ius of HGH split between 25 days...you will not gain anything. Even if you continue longer as you proposed.

You'd be doing .6 ius/day. 2 ius/day is anti-aging dosing.


Thank you. That answers my question.

i was prescribed this by an anti-aging clinic after complaining of tendon issues and long recovery times. I've been on Test C since November, 2012. I'm 44, 225lbs, 6'1" and about 13% BF.

I've been on the HGH for just over a week and I have sides like achy hands and joints. I wanted to confirm the dosage I was taking which seems low as you point out.
