There are many other pharmaceutical companies also manufacturing this drug and every manufacturer recommends different dosage levels. However the common practice is 0.18 mg per kg of weight of the individual. The dosage can either be taken six times or three alternating week days.
Saizen is an injectable somatropin, which is administered either under the skin or into a muscle. If you buy this injection from any illegal underground source then it is injected by using traditional needle and syringe. In many cases, it is supplied in powder form, which is mixed with sterile liquid solution for injecting.
Merck supplies its injection form with a device designed for children, so that it is easier to administer them. It almost looks like a magic marker pen. These pens have pre-set dosage and the needle remains hidden. The device is just pressed against the skin. Some manufacturers also make needle free device that uses a spring like mechanism, which needs to be inserted into the skin.
