welcome to HealthcareMagic
The height of a person is based or governed by the genes with in your family ;so your height will increase in proportion to your parents so if they are short then you will not be very tall even by taking the medicines.As you are 5'1" and 19 yrs there is a chance of growing till the age of 21-22yrs max.I guess you should get a increase of 2 inches naturally if you exercise & try stretching .As for medicines please consult your family physician for advice regarding usage of particular medicines.
