In brief: If you're deficient
Adults with gh deficiency may not feel very well until gh is replaced.
Though if you're missing other pituitary hormones this complicates things a bit because gh wont fix anything else missing. Hormone replacement is available for other pituitary hormones if necessary. Humatrope (human growth hormone) is one of many brands of gh. If you're not gh deficient taking gh is unsafe and can cause serious morbidity.

In brief: No.
Life gets better if there is a medical problem which can be repaired or corrected with a medicine that either replaces what is deficient, or a medicine that stimulates the body in such a way that it allows the body to heal itself.
The present and potential healing properties within all of us are extraordinary powerful; very often nature needs a nudge.
