Sermorelin is a custom pharmacy drug, a manufactured human growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), or bio-identical hormone. The brain produces sermorelin and its primary function there is to stimulate the creation and subsequent distribution of growth hormone (GH). Sermorelin has a multitude of medical uses. Sermorelin is used as an agent to stimulate growth in children, as a diagnostic evaluator of human pituitary function, as a supplement to growth hormone insufficiency, and for anti-aging therapy. Some studies have shown that sermorelin may reduce body fat through lipolysis, boost immunity, increase bone density, increase energy and strength, increase muscle mass and definition, improve muscle recovery time, increase endurance, and accelerate wound and surgical healing.

Specifically regarding anti-aging, sermorelin may improve the physical effects of aging such as lack of energy, loss of stamina, and muscle weakening. As aging occurs, human growth hormone production is decreased; sermorelin may potentially help restore some of the youthful qualities that may be in decline.


Sermorelin can be crafted into various forms from sublingual tablets and lozenges to injectables. Consult with your compounding pharmacist for more information on the various forms of delivery. Your doctor will decide which form is right for you if he or she prescribes sermorelin for your condition or health goal. Always follow your doctor's directions on usage and dosage.


While some users may experience few or no side effects, others may experience multiple side effects. Unfortunately there is no method to predict which, if any, side effects you may experience while taking sermorelin. Being prepared for all potential side effects is the best way to ensure that you will know how to react if and when you do experience any. Talk to your doctor about possible side effects and ask for a thorough explanation of each. If you experience any side effect, or multiple side effects, that linger or get worse, see your doctor. Common side effects seen with sermorelin are as follows:

  • Hives
  • Injection Site Reactions (pain, redness, or swelling)
  • Flushing
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Changes in Taste
  • Hyperactivity
