Since you have already completed your growth you are unlikely to grow in length further.
you can consider limb lengthening surgeries to increase your height.
you can gain 7-10 cm of height with this surgeries.

there are chances that your height can increase uptil your bony epiphysis join,which usually occurs at age of 18 to 19 years of age.
carry on taking good balanced healthy diet & do regular pull up exercises.
there is a formula to calculate your target height=ht of mother+ht of father divided by 2 plus 6 inch(as male).No medication in the world could change it after puberty as it determined by genetic factor.
