    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.

    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!

    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.
