Thanks for writing in.
Hair growth is actually determined primarily be genetic factors. Sometimes, it is less in other conditions like a hormonal deficiency, dietary deficiency etc. There is no medication as such for growing a beard. I would suggest that you take a proper diet with plenty of protein and vitamin A. Also, please visit a dermatologist who can rule out a hormonal deficiency and help you with the same.
Hope this helps.
