Been on HGH for 6 months - just started semorolin today. Did you ever get any answers, that how I found you, looking for the same answers?

Wondering if either of you HGH to Sermorelin testers have anything to report several months later. Thanks

How did the HGH work for you? I've been thinking about trying it and so is my father. He's 69 and I'm 38. Just wondering if what you think of it; pros/cons?

Sermorelin by itself is a complete waste of money IMO. I noticed absolutely nothing from it after switching from HGH. My IGF-1 stayed the same or dropped from previous levels while on it. Now on Sermorelin and GHRP-6........to soon to tell the results.

What dosage do you suggest to start out on? The stuff I'm getting is from a friend who is in the medical field; I'm buying 5cc for $173.00 and he said to take .3mg a day to start out on. I'm not to sure he knows what he's talking about; which is why I came to this site.

At 1 IU 5 days per week, your first vial will last three weeks. By the way, your vial contains 5 mgs. After three weeks go to 1.5 IUs five days per week. Within the first 30 days you should notice results - more dramatic the next month. Reconstitute with 3MLs of water and keep refrigerated. 1 IU will be 20 ticks on your syringe and 1.5 will be 30.

I wonder if there is a place for sermorelin within a GH protocol, similar to the way in which hCG is used with TRT.

Pfizer developed a pill called Capromorelin that actually worked well (stimulating the pituitary) in all age groups. Unfortunately, the FDA does not consider aging a disease. They didn't give it their nod. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capromorelin

As I understand Sermorelin, it coaxes the body to release more GHRH. So, like clomid (although the method of action is different; clomid is blocking hypothalmic receptor sites) it is working higher up the hormonal food chain, so to speak.
But it makes intuitive sense to use it prior to cessation of exogenous GH. You're priming the pump to make your own GH before exo-GH is withdrawn.
As far as your experience with it, my understanding is that it needs to be used with other things like GHRP-6 in order to be effective. That said, the synergy which results is attained at lower doses that sermorelin monotherapy, making the duet not only more effective but affordable.
Also, my understanding is that the GH release provided by sermorelin/GHRP is more similar to the physiologic release of these hormones than the square wave pattern of exo-GH, fwiw.
Additionally, unless I'm mistaken, one does not need a dx of GH deficiency to receive sermorelin therapy.

Sermorelin may be easier to get your hands on, but if it does nothing to increase your IGF-1 level than it's a total waste of money. I know nothing about GHRP. Maybe the cocktail of the two works. If blood work can prove this, and the cost is reasonable, I will try it myself.
First you need to determine whether you really need therapy. For most people androgens sufficiently increase IGF levels. What were your levels the last time you drew blood? Were you on testosterone or HCG therapy at the time? Do you have a specific condition that requires GH therapy? I do. GH helped me reverse Oesteopenia. I know you can get a prescription if you need one.
I use 1IU - 5 days per week, and take plenty of time off to give my pituitary a rest. I spend $55/wk - 44 weeks per year on name brand GH. I don't recall what Sermorelin ran me, but I don't think it was much less. Cost aside, I would prefer a working secretagogue. Let me know if you come across any data showing the results of the Sermorelin/GHRP combo. I'm interested.

From what i've looked at, he is right, the ghrp6/sermorelin combo is WAY more effective than sermorelin alone. sermorelin will likely raise the level of the trough in your normal GH pulses (possibly cause a pulse as well), where ghrp6 will force an immediate pulse, and raise the level of the spike. so together they end up with a bit more of a total effect than either alone.

The pros: Fat loss, better sleep, improved cognitive function, quicker recovery time and improved erection quality.
Cons: pricey (you need to shop around). I found that doses over 1.5 IUs/day caused some water retention.
It would probably be good for your dad, but if you don't need it don't take it.
