    I am wondering if this is what happened to me. I took this product for a month and half. Got really sick and now months later tested positive for RA. Been in and out of ER, Doctors, Mayo Clinic. I am so worried.

  • Judy

    I started taking SeroVital two months ago, and I lost 4 pounds in the beginning. Now I have gain 8 pounds. I exercise everyday, and I should be losing weight, not gaining. Also I too experience terrible burning sensations, and I went to my Doctor. I’m stuck with two boxes of SeroVital. I only wish that I had done my research before I purchase it. It doesn’t work for me.

  • Cathy

    I’m 48 and was takin serovital constantly tired and than weight gain and here it goes my face and throat swelled up so bad I had to go to doctors I looked horrible took product back and got money back
    This product sucks

  • Connie

    I have no problem taking this SeroVital. My skin is tighten and soft, my eyes are bright. I am 48 years old and on my menopause with estrogen medication. A lot of people can not believe that I have 2 teenager boys 17 and 15 1/2. You can not just sit and eat whatever you want and let SeroVital do the magic. You need to do your part. Exercise, eat right and drink water.

  • Debra

    I have been taking SeroVital-hgh for about a month now and have started bleeding from my gums when brushing my teeth. I have not noticed any other benefits so I am going to stop.

  • Connie

    I have no idea why you all are having negative comments about SeroVital….I am on my menopause, haven’t had period for 6 years. I’m currently taking SeroVital Liquid for 2 months and I don’t experience anything bad. I did noticed my skin is firm and soft. I am currently taking estradiol and progesterone. My doctor stated to continue taking that prescriptions even if I’m taking SeroVital. Maybe you need to take it at a different time. I used to take it 2 hours after dinner at bedtime but it didn’t worked out for me due to my schedule working late and having late dinner so I decided to take it 2 hours after coffee in the morning and 2 hours before breakfast/lunch. I rarely eat breakfast early in the morning so this was perfect for my schedule…..

    Thanks for all the info , a friend was asking if we knew anything about this product so I looked it up for her . She knew I had prostate problems and rectal pain that was out of this world , and the doctors at several places could not figure it out . After about nine painful months my sister-in-law ( a Chinese Immigrant ) suggested I go with her to see an herbalist in Chicago’s China Town so I went . sixteen dollars and four days later I’m cured . I spent four thousand Dollars on my co-pay and medications before he fixed the problem , and he said I could and should use a probiotic and Saw Palmetto that can be found in any big box store because technically that was all he was giving me

    I’ve been taking it for about 6 weeks. I’ve had IBS since my twenties, and about two weeks ago, I noticed my symptoms getting far worse. Bloating, constipation, and abdominal pain. That’s a shame, too, because I’m just now starting to notice a positive difference in my skin and other areas. I seem to have more energy. But the negative digestive issues are outweighing the positives, I’m afraid.

  • ana torres

    Ursula please stop take this serovital…maybe I should say serodeath. This stuff almost ruined my life. I took it for six weeks and I had to stop it. I have serious heath problems now (all due to this drug and my stupidity, did read the reviews util I start having serious pain in my muscles). I used to be a very healthy person, exercising taking care of my diet only prob I had was trouble to sleep. That’s y I took this drug. I never had a benefit and I stopped because it was the only thing I have done different. Because of it Now I have carpo tunnel, rheumatoid arthritis and maybe fibromyalgia. Please stop taking it.

  • ana torres

    Hello Cindy. Now that I read you comments I ask myself why didn’t I bother to see reviews before taking SEROVITAL. I guess I know the answer, they have a very good advertisement , always focus on the miracle this drug can make. I’m have the same problems you had. I took it for about a month and half but I started developing a terrible tendinite on my arms from nowhere. Like you I always have been very healthy and active. The reason I started taking SERODEATH was because I was having trouble to sleep and like you I didn’t know this was poison but rather a vitamin. Well, its been two months since I stopped it and even though those hot flashes are gone my pain keeps progressing from my arms to my right foot and now on my left. I’m afraid this drug triggered RA on me. Can you tell me how do you feel now?Are you back to normal? I also hope people read these reviews before taking it. This drug can ruin your financial, physical and emotional aspects of your life.

    Gf9 does nothing .Wasted $400 ..went right back to serovital. I’ll find a Way to pay for it

  • Heathen Samm

    You’re young enough to have your body still producing enough hgh. Wait until you’re 40

  • NJ Harrington

    What has all that to do with serovital?

    • Heathen Samm

      read the post to which I was responding. The writer was suggesting that instead of spending money on products like Sero-Vital to feel good, people should go to the shelter and adopt a pet. Her suggestion that adopting a pet to feel good about yourself prompted my response.

      • herdzcatz

        I have 3 cats. They definitely help to fill a void and they are very well cared for, trust me. (11, 13, and 18 yrs old). That said, Thanks everyone, for the warnings about this supplement. I, too, at age 61 was intrigued by promises of smoother skin and greater energy. I will not purchase this product thanks to all of these reviews.
        For sleep, I’ve found Epsom salt lotion (magnesium) on the bottom of my feet before bed helps me to fall asleep more quickly and sleep more soundly until my wonderful bladder wakes me up!

        • Heathen Samm

          I used Sero=Vital, and never had negative reactions. I’m wondering if all the people who are getting hot flashes because their system is in effect “going back in time” to when they first experienced them? Even if this is true, it’s not something anyone wants. Sero-Vital brought back vivid dreams, and I was much less foggy in the morning. I bought another brand, which is slightly less expensive, Gen20Plus, which lists the ingredients. Pretty much the same as the Sero-Vital. I haven’t lost weight, but then again I haven’t been exercising. I may have the only Fitbit which goes backwards when counting steps. This formulation says to take 2 pills twice a day on an empty stomach, but so far I’ve only managed to take 2 in the middle of the night, as I don’t want to take them with vitamins or medication. I’m close to your age and I think it does give me more energy. I would be happy if my facial skin were more elastic. Maybe there will be a difference if I actually do manage to take the 4 tablets a day.

    • ericthemadman

      Right? I agree with ya NJ…!!

      Heathen….you absolutely may be correct….I believe most folks shouldn’t have children either. Not up to us to decide? All I know is this stuff sounds like poison!

      I just had a second neck fusion & thought hey NFL players use HGH & maybe I could heal faster & better? NO WAY!! Good luck folks!

  • Heathen Samm

    I have 3 herniated discs in my neck, and arthritic changes in my lower spine. Yes, pain is a daily companion. SeroVital does nothing for the herniated disc pain, but my lower back isn’t as painful.

  • Heathen Samm

    I’ve been taking this for around 3 months. Skin looks good, but then again my skin is user-friendly. It might be slightly less saggy. I’ve read that people who were prone to adult acne have had outbreaks. I’ve had a pimple, but that also could be attributed to reapplying sunblock over prior sunblock during the course of a day. No hot flashes, no breakthrough bleeding. I can always sleep, but one thing is different in that I wake up more alert, not groggy, and I’m more alert and patient throughout the day. There has been a weight gain, but I’m also less active than at any time in my life. So there’s been a similarity in some symptoms which people have noted on other sites (if not this one, where postmenopausal symptoms seem to be in the majority), but these symptoms could also be attributed to other reasons.

    Anyone see The Blade Runner? “The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long.”

  • CalGirl

    I’ve been taking this for about 2 weeks and am shocked at all of the (negative) side effects)
    *My fingers feel arthritic and my rings don’t fit my fingers anymore!
    *Knees and legs have been extremely sore and swollen
    *Nausea comes and goes (probably depending on how much water I drank that day
    *Water retention

    ~~The reality is, I’m glad it didn’t work and now I can save that $100 per month!

    • ana torres

      I took it for 6 weeks. Its been about two months stopped taking SEROVITAL and the pain I felt has spread from my arms tendons to my hands right foot then left. I’m taking ra medication to stop the inflammation caused by this drug. Please, stop it. This is a terrible drug that can ruin your life in all aspects.

  • MsTarry4 .

    I used Serovital for exactly one month and gained weight. Otherwise, I didn’t feel any better or worse. I wasn’t about to continue taking it once I noticed the 3 pound weight gain.

  • Theresa

    After taking Serovital hgh for about two months, I was having anxiety attacks, heart racing and pounding, my blood pressure was elevated. I wasn’t feeling good. I never lost any weight. My skin looked the same. There were no positive outcomes, only adverse side effects frrom taking this supplement. I am a health professional and I would not recommend Serovital-hgh. I was afraid after I abruptly stopped taking Serovital, I would have major side effects. I feel 100% better now that I have stopped taking it.

  • trilla
