A 35-year-old member asked:

are there foot tendon repair medications?

No: There are no medications. Tendons either heal on their own or are surgically repaired.
Dr. Arnold Beresh

No: Medication will not repair foot tendons.

There may not be oral medications which directly repair tendons, but injection of a solution into the tendon (rather than surgery, which is generally the only other option) can cause the tendon to repair itself quite handily. This method is called 'Prolotherapy' or 'Stimulated Ligament Reconstruction.'
