In brief: Clinical indication
If your clinical indication for gh replacemt is no longer valid or is valid but on supra physiological dosing, you may the potential develop side effects (such ad headaches, fluid retension, elevated glucose level).
I urge you talk with the physician who prescribed it for you. Good luck.
