Brief Answer: Height cannot be increased now Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Height can be increased only till a particular age. Height is genetically determined and increases only until teenage. It is practically impossible to increase height beyond the age of 20 years. Even till that age the only thing that works is diet and exercise. After the bone epiphysis have fused, any bone growth is impossible. In your case the epiphysis got fused many years ago. So the straightforward answer to your question is that you cannot increase your height by using any medicine. Regards Dr Vaishalee
