hi,thanks for query.There are no special medicines or injections which can increase height.You grow under the influence of hormones till you attain age of puberty.After this the ends of long fuses and you can not grow your height,please do not get carried away and visit a qualified doctor who can guide you properly.Take healthy diet and do regular exercise that will help..
wishing you good health.

Hello shenhi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The height of a male grows upto 21 yrs of age and in females till 18 yrs and after that there is no growth naturally or with medicine as the bones get fused and do not extend.If you are with in the age limit then hormonal injections do help in some people but the height of a person is determined genetically so please consult another doctor as well and better a M.D Physician to see whether the doctor is really treating you or taking you for a ride.Please reconsult and discuss the issue.
Take care.
