I am an RN caring for a ten year old boy receiving genotropin. His extremely aggressive behavior subsided after not receiving his medication for several weeks due to prescription renewal delay. I would describe his behavior to his mother as a "flip of a switch". I am very concerned as he is due to resume taking the medication and at a higher dose. Have you had any patients with similar reactions?

I'm sorry I don't know of anyone on genotropin and could not find any reviews on it either. If you have noticed such a huge difference in the boy since he stopped taking the medicine, I would suggest that you discuss this with his doctor.
