There is little information on acute or chronic overdosage with GENOTROPIN (somatropin for injection). It is known that intravenously administered growth hormone has been shown to result in an acute decrease in plasma glucose and subsequently to hyperglycemia. It is thought that the same effect might occur on rare occasions with high dosages of GENOTROPIN administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
Long-term overdosage may result in signs and symptoms of acromegaly consistent with overproduction of human growth hormone.
