to Inject Humatrope 5 mg Vial
Humatrope is intended for Subcutaneous Injection. This means that you
use a short needle to inject the medication into the deepest layers
of the skin, where it will slowly disseminate into the body over 24
hours. The entire body is lined with this layer, but some areas are
thicker than others. The following are the ideal locations to inject
your Humatrope HGH:
Below the shoulder and above the elbow, at the back of the arm.
The outer, upper buttocks
The tops of the thighs
Any area of the front of your stomach, other than the area
immediately adjacent your bellybutton
Inject Humatrope 5 mg Vial
Clean the area you wish to inject with an alcohol swab. Start
exactly where you want to inject and clean in a circle extending
from that location. Let the alcohol evaporate.
Grip an area of skin between your fingers to raise it slightly. This
makes it easier to hit your mark with the injection. Push the needle
into the skin quickly but firmly.
Carefully depress the plunger so that the entire dose is delivered
into the body. Release the skin, wait a few moments, and draw the
needle out the same way that you pushed it in. You may see just a
bit of blood. If so, use a bit of gauze or cotton to depress the
area, and use a bandage if necessary.
Toss the syringe and needle into your approved container as soon as
you are finished with your injection, and put your Humatrope back
