ZOMACTON—a trusted growth hormone treatment

ZOMACTON is a proven somatropin therapy that has been trusted for more than 3 years and prescribed for more than 3500 patients.3

What it does

Since your child’s body isn’t making enough growth hormone (specifically somatropin), ZOMACTON is administered to replace that growth hormone. In fact, it’s identical in structure to the natural growth hormone made by the body’s pituitary gland.4

ZOMACTON puts patients first, with therapy that’s reasonably priced

Yes, growth is your biggest concern, but we know that getting therapy that fits your family’s budget matters to you too. ZOMACTON may be able to help with this cost burden of therapy, so you can focus more on your growing child and less on cost.

You can get a quick personalized cost assessment to help you understand how much you may save with ZOMACTON.

How growth hormone works in kids

Growth hormone plays an important part to promote normal growth in children and adolescents. It’s made in the pituitary gland and flows through the blood to directly activate growth in different body tissues—especially bone and cartilage.5 Growth hormone also triggers the liver to produce more of a substance that boosts the effects of growth hormone.5

What you may expect with ZOMACTON 5mg or 10 mg

Starting GH therapy with a proven somatropin

When your doctor prescribes ZOMACTON, and your child begins therapy, there can be a sudden “spurt” in his or her growth rate. It may be noticeable in the first 3 or 4 months. Eventually, your child’s growth rate should progress more slowly, but remain steady.4,6

What to expect from a trusted treatment

With ZOMACTON, your child may grow to a height similar to other children of the same age. While every child’s body will respond to ZOMACTON differently, most children who receive growth hormone replacement therapy reach a normal adult height that matches the average height of others in their family. Results may be contingent on duration of treatment.6

Staying the course

Your child has a limited time to grow, and you may have already lost some time due to a delayed diagnosis.6 Missed doses could mean missing out on growth.7 No matter how your child responds to therapy, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions. Every dose can make a difference with helping your child reach his or her growth goals.

Stay positive. You should see results over time. Remember that growth is a slow process that can take months or years. Your doctor will talk with you about realistic short– and long–term expectations and how long treatment will be necessary.

Follow your doctor’s orders
