Detailed Answer:

Hi
Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. As you are 26 year old so it is likely that your all epyphysis has fused. so it is unlikely to increase your height by medicine. But your height can be increased by bone lengthening operations ( illizarov/monorail technique.

You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
