No: Once your growth centers are fused( closed) growth hormone cannot make you grow. When you have growth hormone deficiency giving you growth hormone will get you to your genetic expections for growth but not taller than what you were meat to be.

Will HGH (human growth hormone) help me in getting taller ?

Unlikely to happen: Your profile lists your age as 46. Anyone who went through puberty and had their bone growth centers close normally will never grow taller with hgh.

It depends: There are fda approved indications for growth hormone use which have been well-studied. Depending on what age/stage of puberty hgh is started, and for what indication, growth expectations vary.

How long it will take to grow on humatrope (human growth hormone) growth hormones?

Within a year.: Firstly, Humatrope (human growth hormone) (generic, somatropin), or gh (growth hormone) should only be used for truly indicated diagnoses: pediatric pts with short stature and gh deficiency, certain genetic or endocrine diseases, adults with childhood onset gh deficiency or an adult form. It is an injectable and it's use should be monitored by experienced doc. If no increased height within a year, needs reevaluation.
