Since your child’s body isn’t making enough growth hormone (specifically somatropin), ZOMACTON® is injected to replace that growth hormone. In fact, it’s identical in structure to the natural growth hormone made by the body’s pituitary gland.1
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.2 Growth hormone also triggers the liver to produce more of a substance that boosts the effects of growth hormone.2
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.
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.1,3
For some children, just the thought of a needle can be frightening. Sadly, this fear can turn treatment into a struggle. ZOMACTON® now offers a device that allows you to deliver your child's medicine needle-free. And nurse educators are available to help get you started.
After you familiarize yourself with the ZOMA-Jet 10 instructions for use, administration involves:
RIGHT: Turn right to reset
LEFT: Turn left to fill the dose
CLICK: Click to deliver the dose
No matter how your child responds to therapy, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instruction. NEVER increase the dose or number of injections unless instructed by your doctor.
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.
