No more growth: You need to come to terms with the fact that you are not going to grow anymore. At 18 , if you get maybe another 1/2 inch of growth, i'd be surprised. Your height is genetically determined, and your bones fuse in males by age18 , meaning no further growth is going to happen. There is no medication, hormone or other internet snake oil going to give you any more inches. Time to accept this is you!

No solution: Unfortunately at your age you will not grow any more. This is due to the growth plates in your bones being closed now. No further growth will occur. ... Read More
