Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
Whatever you are doing is right and although you age is 18, after which there are very less chances of increase in height, it can help you somewhat.
There are no medications that can increase height and do not get trapped in that fake advertisement.
Best wishes for your health.

exercise is good for health it help to increase your height but once you reached ossification then there is no chance of increasing height.so you need to develop your confidence it really matter
Since you are 18 years old, although minimal, but there are chances that your height might increase. Continue with the nutritious diet and stretching exercises. You have not mentioned your current height and weight. Heredity plays an important role in height determination, hence it is important to know the height of your parents. There are no medications perse for increasing the height. Do not get carried away with the tall claims made by many medicines available outside which promise height gain.
