I’m on my second round of GH (I had to stop the first time due to cancer). I’ve been on Omnitrope since 2006 and the threads inside my pen must have worn down – I’m having a lot of trouble injecting it now.
I insert the needle and have to balance on the edge of the countertop in the bathroom and sort of lean in. Has anyone else had to replace the pen? I told my insurance company who sends the actual drug and they said “not us”. I don’t know if my endo has to prescribe another “starter kit” or what.
I did find a website that will sell me a new one for $200 but I’d rather not buy one that way. I found nothing on the Novartis website about this, either
Please respond here or on the message boards.

Did you try contacting Omnitrope directly?
Yes, I did, thanks. I called them (877.456.6794) and I got my new pen the next day.
Others said they got a whole new kit every 3 years. I’ve never got a new kit since 2006 – seems like they owe me one, anyway – or 5! HA
