Human Growth Hormone is Illegal if
Imported into the United States from Foreign Sources
An act known as the Federal Food,
Drug, and Cosmetic Act (Also referred to as FDCA) places tight
restrictions upon the types of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment
which can be brought into the United States. Under almost all
circumstances, it is illegal to import pharmaceuticals that have not
been granted approval by the Food and Drug Administration in the
In addition to this, the FDCA also
prevents any drug that has been exported overseas to be returned to
the United States, unless it is returned to the United States by the
manufacturer. There are a few examples where prescription drugs can
be brought back into the country after they have been exported, but
under most circumstances, it is illegal for an individual to bring
foreign medications into the United States.
and Drug Administration Individual Importation Exceptions
recognizes that there are certain circumstances where a particular
unapproved drug may offer some special benefit to an individual
patient. There are four criteria that must be met for an individual
to import a drug not approved by the FDA:
The medication is intended for the treatment of a medical condition which cannot be effectively treated within the United States. There are many drugs which have been approved in other countries that have yet to fully pass inspection in the United States. If a particular drug has the potential to benefit a patient greatly, and there is no alternative to that medication in the United States, then the drug may be legally imported.
The Medication cannot be sold within the United States after it has been imported. The goal of these exceptions is to allow certain patients that expressly need them to have access to these medications.
The importation of the drug does not produce any serious and unnecessary risk. Certain medications may be deemed too dangerous or not worthwhile to the patient. In these cases, the drug will not be approved for importation.
The patient that plans to import the medication must sign a written affidavit that confirms in writing that the patient is bringing in the medication for self-treatment, and has no plans to distribute the drug. The patient must also show proof that a particular physician within the U.S.A. will be monitoring the patient's treatment, or the patient must show proof that he or she initiated treatment abroad and will be continuing the treatment within the borders of the United States.
and Drug Administration is the sole arbiter which determines under
which circumstances a medication can be imported in spite of other
FDA Regulations. If all of of the above conditions are met, then the
patient is allowed to bring in a three-month supply of the medication
for personal use and treatment.
It Illegal to Import HGH?
Based upon the above criteria, there are a couple of important
reasons why it is illegal to import foreign sources of Human Growth
It is illegal to import HGH because Human Growth Hormone is available in the United States for patients that have a need deemed appropriate by the FDA. Although there are certain off-label uses for which Human Growth Hormone shows promise, HGH can only be prescribed in order to treat legitimate Human Growth Hormone Deficiency or to treat HIV-Related Muscle Wasting. In the future, additional uses will inevitably be approved, but to this date, the number of permissible uses is limited
Another reason why foreign HGH is illegal is because exemptions from the FDCA are intended to help patients gain access to drug treatments which are not available in the United States, not to help patients acquire drugs outside of the United States which are accessible within the nation's borders. Drug importation is not intended to subvert the FDA approval process.
Human Growth Hormone is considered a Schedule Three Drug in the
United States. There are three criteria for a drug to be considered
The Substance has approved medical purposes within the United States. Human Growth Hormone is approved within the United States for the treatment of HGH Deficiency and HIV-Related Wasting.
The Substance displays a lower risk of abuse than drugs placed in Schedule One or Schedule Two. The FDA feels that Human Growth Hormone has the potential to lead to abuse because of its potential as a potent Performance Enhancing Drug. HGH is widely used by bodybuilders, weight lifters, and athletes in order to increase physical performance, in spite of United States Law.
Abuse of the medication or substance is considered to lead to a high degree of psychological dependence or a low to moderate level of physiological dependence. It is primarily because of this criteria that Human Growth Hormone should not be considered a Schedule Three drug. Human Growth Hormone does not produce any form of physical dependence.
In addition to this, HGH Injections do not lead to a high level of
psychological dependency. One could argue that the desire for
increased physical results from exercise and training could
constitute a minor form of psychological dependency, but men and
women that choose Human Growth Hormone in no way experience high
levels of psychological dependence as a result of their use of HGH.
Risk of HGH Importation Outweigh the Benefits
It is a risky proposition to illegally important prescription
medications into the United States. There are a number of reasons why
we do not recommend attempting to import foreign pharmaceuticals:
IT'S ILLEGAL. Although there are many foreign sources for Human Growth Hormone, it is against the law to smuggle outside sources of HGH into the United States. If you are caught bringing HGH into the United States from a foreign source you will likely be charged with a felony, and will potentially face large fines or even jail time. Foreign sources of Human Growth Hormone are often cheaper than those available in the United States, but no discount is worth the price of a felony on your record.
There is no guarantee of quality. There are multiple avenues by which Human Growth Hormone is sold to American buyers. Individuals can cross the border into Tijuana for example, and purchase the hormone right off of the shelves of Mexican pharmacies. There are also countless websites that promise easy access to high quality HGH from international sources.
Please recognize that the only ultimately guaranteed source of Human
Growth Hormone is from a licensed domestic pharmacy. Real Human
Growth Hormone is very sensitive to outside conditions and tampering.
If the hormone is not cared for in a particular manner, than the HGH
that you receive will either lose potency or be rendered completely
ineffective. Human Growth Hormone degrades in response to both
adverse temperatures as well as physical agitation.
If you order HGH from an international source, there is no guarantee
that they will treat your medication with the respect it deserves,
leaving you fleeced with a worthless product.
Foreign HGH is Often Fraudulent. There is absolutely no guarantee that what you pay for is what you'll get when you resort to international sources of Growth Hormone. Often, retailers will cut the HGH that you have ordered with other substances which degrade the quality of your purchase.
In many cases, these hormones are cut with substances that can even
be dangerous for your health! In other cases, you may actually
receive a completely fraudulent product. Many times, international
sellers claim to be selling HGH, but actually ship fake Human Growth
Hormone. Since the transaction is illegal, the con-man pockets the
cash, and you get practically nothing.
