Growth hormone may be taken with most other medication, but it is important to tell your doctor about all medications (i.e. those prescribed by a doctor and those available without a prescription) that you are taking, especially glucocorticoids, sex steroids, or thyroid hormone. If you have diabetes and receive insulin, the dose may have to be adjusted.

You should not stop growth hormone treatment if you have an illness such as a cold or ‘flu’, unless your physician advises otherwise.
