Hi there, I took these injections for over 2 years when I was 15, so around 2004?? I have to say I had no negative side effects at all, apart from the obvious bruising around injection sites. My growth dramatically increased after about 6-8 months of injecting and my weight gained steadily too. I never suffered from headaches whilst on it, and I can certainly tell you all that any moodiness I had was down to just being a teenager!!!! I can easily say the medication improved my life! In response to your question I'd say see a doctor....

My child has been on this med for 6 months and has shown considerable growth, but his frequent headaches scare me and make me wonder if this could be a symptom of a tumor beginning. His doctor is not concerned with it but it just doesnt seem right. Should I be concerned?

Looking to see if taking these at the same time cause adverse side effects.

Secondary pan-hypopituitarism after trans-sphenoidal partial removal of non-secretory pituitary macro-adenoma followed by 5 weeks of daily cranial radiotherapy in 2009.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Hypopituitarism and fever
I read your article on testing of hypopituitarisum and fever - http://www.ehealthme.com/cs/hypopituitarism/fever - Twice now in the past 2 years I have broken out in a great deal of pain accompanied by a high temperature of about 102. I was told since I take cortef, that I should not get fevers - but now I read that my health issues could be causing me fevers. These fevers have lasted for about 3 days. Doctors are baffled as to what causes the fevers - although your report makes it a bit clearer. The question is now, what do I do when I get these high fevers and aches which debilitate me for a week or better?
