    I've heard good and bad things about HGH and was just wondering if anyone who has taken it could share any thoughts/experiences?

    Taking HGH without a prescription is considered criminal by those unhealthy folks who do legislation in The United States.

    HGH, like AAS (Anabolic Androgrenic Steroids) can cause a large number of positive effects on the body and promote wellness. That's why GH, and AAS, have long been used for the treatment of chronic disease, burns, and in particular any disease with folks that have compromised immune systems. I.e., these things are given to folks who are the sickest of the sick. As well, there is a reasonably strong movement for more use of these compounds in anti-aging, obesity control, depression control, and general wellness promotion. That's also why no federal agency, and nearly no trade agencies, have EVER recommended their control, and, in fact, have recommended against it.

    I'd encourage you to visit any of the good bodybuilding boards where you'll find a long list of items to read and research, and I'd encourage you to google on anti-aging. Anti-aging is quickly becoming a therapy that folks are demanding because these compounds work, and work well, to promote a sense of well being, keep the sick from getting sicker (HIV, cancer and so on), and help athletes to attain a higher level of training.

    As well, view HBO Real Sports Episode #99, and the movie "Bigger Stronger Faster"

    Is the dosage based on body weight, desired outcomes? Does anyone know what a ballpark figure on what HGH costs oper month? I believe in the thousands, right?

    HGH is something you dont want to mess with before the age of 40, If you have an increble urge to take something, take prohormone, they are relatively safer compare to HGH. You dont need to take HGH to be healthy/healthier unless you have a life-threatening disease. There is a massive difference between palliative benefits and health benefits.

    Taking hGH after puberty, especially without strict medical supervision, is highly unadvisable. It can result in acromegaly (wikipedia it - not attractive) as well as broadening of the bones - also not very attractive...

    Agromegaly is caused when the person has a bad gene, AND, they have VERY LARGE amounts of GH in their system, typically caused by a tumor. At any prudent dose level, agromegaly is not a concern. Most folks could never afford to dose on HGH high enough to cause those problems, even if they have the gene.

    Many HIV patients can attest to the value of GH and AAS cocktails, that not only promote a sense of well being, raise T cells, boost immune response, and recovery, but, also maintain from 40% to 100% more lean muscle mass than they could otherwise.

    The poster, at 30 years of age, would do well to have a fasting glucose, free testosterone, and a free thyroid test, as well as a CMP and PSA, to see where those numbers are sitting. At about 28 or so testosterone starts to decline, and HRT may well be a much better (very inexpensive) therapy to improve the health of the poster.

    From what I've seen, for a person without some form of chronic sickness such as HIV, HGH is probably to expensive, and to marginally effective, for ongoing use. AAS are much better choices.
