Genotropin Miniquick How to Take

Genotropin Miniquick (Somatropin) belongs to a class of medications known as growth stimulants. Genotropin Miniquick (Somatropin) is a synthetic growth hormone. Growth hormone is made naturally in our bodies by the pituitary gland and is necessary for stimulating growth in children.

Genotropin Miniquick (Somatropin) is used to treat:

  • growth hormone deficiency in children (to replace growth hormone that they are unable to produce enough of naturally)
  • short stature associated with Turner syndrome for children whose epiphysis (growth plates) have not sealed
  • growth failure for children who were smaller than expected when they were born and who have not caught up by the age of 2 to 4 years
  • growth failure for children with confirmed Prader-Willi syndrome
  • short stature of unknown cause when the epiphyses (growth plates) have not sealed
  • adults who have growth hormone deficiency (this can result from pituitary disease, surgery, radiation therapy, hypothalamic disease, or trauma)
