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?
