... the awful petroleum smell. I'm just curious. I know the pens have the Mcresol in it but the miniquick doesn't, but the smell is horrendous. I was on Nutropin before and it never smelled. I have had to file a report twice as it had a bad effect on me. First vial was bad, second not as bad, the third horrible and now the forth I just opened up is so so. Any one out there have the same issue? Thanks so much, Mary
My son has used Genotropin and it does have an odor to it. To me, it smells the same way insulin does. It also reminds me of the way Band Aids smell. I am assuming this is what you mean by a "petroleum smell" but yes, I have noticed it does have an odor and this odor is very similar to the way insulin smells (I am a nurse for many years and some injectables do have a certain smell to them) I dont think your cartridges are bad, it is just the way they smell. My son never c/o bad effects from the injection.
