The Norditropin Pen delivers pre-measured doses of Norditropin growth hormone into the body. Initially designed for pediatric patients, this pen-like device makes it very easy to deliver Human Growth Hormone (HGH).  

However, bodybuilding adults diagnosed with growth problems will also benefit from it. They often find the pen device easier to use compared to traditional injections.

About the Pen

The pen delivers pre-measured doses of hormone into the body and it looks and works just like a normal pen used for writing. Just press the pen to the skin, press the button on top, and the dose of growth hormone will be delivered. This reduces the fear in people who do not like needles. Looking just like magic markers, the most popular version in the market today is FlexPro. This pen delivers different dosages, such as 5mg, 10mg, 15mg and 30mg.

Bodybuilders considering Norditropin should only take it with a prescription. Purchasing them without prescription increases the risk of getting black market, counterfeit products.

What is Norditropin?

Norditropin, manufactured by Novo Nordisk, is one of more than a dozen synthetic growth hormones sold today. Designed to replicate the exact structure of HGH produced by the body, it triggers the synthesis and release of other hormones.

Growth hormones also influence other growth factors in the body, even the bones and the skeletal system. When they work together, these hormones are responsible for development in the body. Hence, they are very popular with bodybuilders.

Medical usage

The Norditropin Pen makes it easier to administer the hormone to pediatric patients who have some type of growth deficiency. It’s an effective treatment for children born small for their gestational age and who have failed to reach normal height in childhood. Norditropin is not recommended for anyone without any type of growth deficiency.

Too much growth hormone in the body can yield unexpected and sometimes dangerous reactions.


Dosage recommendations vary from one individual to another but the manufacturer offers specific information with regards to the dosage and dosage increments. However, most medical scenarios require 0.004mg per kilogram on a daily basis. Dosage can be increased, but try not to exceed 0.016mg per kilogram daily. When only starting with the HGH therapy, you can start as low as 0.2mg daily.

Bodybuilders, on the other hand, often triple the amount of their hormone intake which is not recommended at all. If you look at websites and forum boards you will see that most bodybuilders take more than the usual recommended levels and most of them even use HGH with steroids and other growth factors.

A good doctor, however, will not provide prescription for a safe yet effective dosage using growth hormones in any form which is non-medical such as athletic performance enhancement and bodybuilding.

Side Effects

Even with medical oversight, some individuals do experience side effects from using HGH and this is not unusual. Some of the most common adverse reactions are swelling of the extremities, hypertension, muscle pain, bone pain, headaches, pain at the injection site and general feeling of malaise.
