In brief: Not for them.
This is really for children who have a deficiency in growth hormone, and short stature for noonan's syndrome, turner's syndrome, and no catch-up growth by 2-4 years.
It is also for adults with low growth hormone and other hormones, and those with low growth hormone as a child. It is apparently not for teenagers. It might make a short adult grow taller, but may need dose adjustment if grown.
