Hello dear
I understand your concern
I am fine and doing well

Sorry to say that there is no medicine that increase the height.
Height is depend on the genetic and environmental factors.
Growth hormone secreted by the ant. pituitary increase the height but it decrease in adolescence.
Bone epiphysis will close at 18 to 21 years and after that no increase in height.
I am sorry, to say that as you are already 30 years old, no further increase in height is possible.
If you are really booothersome then Surgery (Illizarov) by the orthopedics surgeon is the only option.
Eat high protein diet, do regular exercise, drink plenty of water and do regular exercise
Hope this may help you
