Has anyone had success with adding omnitrope to their cycle? Also, does anyone know the cost in Canada approximately? I have heard its expensive. Thanks!

Hey Ania- I was on Saizen (another HGH) and it was $350 per vial, each vile has two doses. I needed 3 vials for my treatment and would say it did help at the end of the day. Omnitrope may be similar in terms of price!

my total for omnitrope was 1060.79$CA with dispensing fee. This was for 3 vials x 10mg each. I was taking 3.30mg a night. 

 

If you have benefits, its worth contacting them to see if they would refund it. usually you need to fill a special form to make the claim.

 

The manufacturer can offer some discount depending on what you use it for. 

you would need to try and contact them, I contacted the canadian HQ, but was sent on a wild goose chase and needed the meds now so just paid out of pocket.

 

short story is they need your doctor to fill up a form and send it to them before they decide on giving a discount or not. 

 

I would shop around for prices, I think Costco might have had the best price and you dont need a membership to get your prescriptions I think. 

 

Also make sure, if they give you cartridges, that they also order the sure pal pen that goes with your dosage as well, its free but it wasnt automatically provided with the cartridges, my pharmacy had to make another order to get it. You might have to purchase separate pen needles too.

Thanks for your responses.  I think HGH can help with egg quality, but I would be on it for 20 days, so it would really add to my expense:-(
