Hi Ramu, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You don't require any medicines for Height Growth. You can just do regular swimming and skipping as they are known to increase the Height. Eat Protein rich diet which should include Eggs, chicken, Fish, Milk. Exercise regularly for an hour daily. Kindly don't go in for a Surgery or Medications as they are not devoid of Side effects.

Good Luck, Take Care.

Welcome to health care magic
     Limb lengthening is the operation done in case length discrepancy in both limbs.By this method we can add 4-5 inches in length in the short limb.But that operation is not advised for height increase ,as in this bones of limb are broken & stretched slowly under medical supervision .But there are complications & side effects of this operation also.
