  • If you get severe or recurring headaches, visual problems, nausea and vomiting.

  • About all medicines you are taking, including any that you buy without a prescription from your pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop. Some medicines may interfere with the growth effect of growth hormone.

  • If you develop a limp, or experience knee or hip pain.

  • If you are taking growth hormone due to growth problems associated with a kidney disease, it is important that you continue with any treatment for the kidney condition while using growth hormone.
