Final Thoughts

Your child may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your child's healthcare provider to know beforehand if your child will have problems with a medicine he or she has never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your child's healthcare provider know if your child develops any adverse reactions while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Increlex, your child's healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
