Hi !

Thank you for your query.

Steroid does not lead to increase in height but may lead to early epiphysial closure leading to early arrest of height and osteoporosis leading to bone fractures and weakening of bones .

At age of 22 most of the bones have fused so i dont think anything is going to help.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
