the human growth hormon homeopathic really help increasing my stamina, my defense. do you recommend it? 1m in haart treatment. and feel week

Response from Dr. Frascino


Homeopathic growth hormone? No, this will not help your stamina or your defense. Recombinant human growth hormone (prescription drug administered by injection) can be helpful for HIV wasting syndrome.

You've only been on HAART for 1 month. You may well be experiencing some side effects of the medications. I don't know what you are taking, but there are many potential side effects from HIV drugs, such as AZT-induced anemia and Sustiva-induced sleep disturbance. Check with your HIV specialist if you are feeling weak. I'd advise against homeopathic growth hormone. Good luck.
