welcome to HealthcareMagic
Height has a genetic relation so if your parents & grand parents are tall you also will become tall.Since your father is 6' then even you will be close by .A boys height increases upto at least 21 yrs or even more so you have lot of time left.So please don't worry presently you don't need any medicine to increase height.

Dear thanks for choosing health care magic.In most of the cases in males after sexual characters develop means genitals develop,you started to have erection,hairs on beard,in axilla and on beard you can not in any way increase your height.If at the age of 16 this developments has not taken place then you can have male hormone deficiency which can treated with medicines or injections.So it this is the case then only you can increase your height.other wise you have to accept it and move ahead in life.Still in doubt please see your family doctor he will help you.beware of media ads claiming good results,you may be and take care.
