In brief: If deficient yes
Otherwise, it will just increase your risk of diabetes, headaches, fluid retention, etc.
Of course there are many conditions where gh have shown efficacy despite lack of ghd per say (such as turners syndrome ). Talk with your endocrinologist if you are seeking such therapy to see if you qualify.

In brief: Before puberty
Hgh is only prescribed in children diagnosed with a true growth or height deficiency due to a pituitary gland disorder. Hgh has no effect on height in adults.
