    Somatropin....Not Available?

    I was talking to my HR Rep and she said that Somatropin is no longer available because the drug companies who compete against the generic brand were able to stop the production of this product.

    She's now pushing a much more expensive brand called "Vintropin?"

    Is her story true ?

    Google "somatropin". It's not a brand, it's rHGH.

    Somatropin is the Generic form of HGH. Its like buying Ibuprofen instead of Advil.

    You get the same product...for about 1/3 the cost of the name brand Advil.

    I have used it in the past with excellent results. Companies used to have it available in the states...but i guess there's such a big demand for HGH...they decided to DUMP it and produce other forms (that were more profitable).

    Gotdayum drug companies!

    But, then the question is about the generic or about ALL the somatropin?

    PS: I'm sorry for the links.
