What is Tesamorelin?
Tesamorelin is a synthetic growth release hormone that is used in the treatment of HIV-associated lipodystrophy. This peptide contains 44 amino acids and attacks the visceral, organ fat associated with HIV medication that can buildup overtime.
There are still tests being done on Tesamorelin to see if it damages any organs or can be used to help with attacking normal fat that can accumulate on the body.
What are the side effects of Tesamorelin?
Some side effects of Tesamorelin include nausea, night sweats, stomach upset, trouble sleeping, and vomiting. But serious side effects such as any allergic reactions are advised to call 911 due to a medical emergency.
Blood sugar is a problem in Tesamorelin that has been noted in small term tests, but long term use of Tesamorelin have been shown that blood sugar can bring itself back to normal. High blood sugar on Tesamorelin may make you feel confused, drowsy, or thirsty. It can also make you flush, breathe faster, or have a fruit-like breath odor. If these problems occur, you should go to a doctor. If you are diabetic and are taking Tesamorelin, make sure you monitor your blood sugar closely.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not use Tesamorelin. If a woman is HIV positive, she should avoid breastfeeding her baby to lower exposure. Tesamorelin is not safe to use during pre and post-natal times for women.
What is the dosage amount of Tesamorelin I should take?
Tesamorelin should be taken once daily and should be injected after preparation. The syringe should be filled to 2mg a day. This is effective for men and women.
How should I store Tesamorelin?
Tesamorelin can come in a box delivered to your home if you plan to self-inject. But most doctors’ offices can inject the Tesamorelin for you. If you plan to self-inject, store the box of Tesamorelin, syringes, and solution mix in your fridge between 36 and 46 degrees F in the original packaging before use.
