No medicine or exercise can increase height, after the age of 14 -15. chances of height increase are minimal as growth centre fuses. if there would have been any medicine to increase, no one /rich people have been short stature d. there is surgical procedure known as limb lengthening by which one gain 4-5 inches ,but that is not advisable. .Disclaimer
