I'm 18 can I still grow taller? I read that males don't stop growing till 21. I want to grow taller i haven't really gain any height, i an active person so I am starting to look at alternatives like hgh. How safe is it i've seen sold on craigslist and oth

I : I would strongly recommend that you not buy medicine from craigslist or online from any other source. There's no guarantee whatsoever that you're getting what you think you are or that the medication is even safe for human use. Different people stop growing at different times. Without an x-ray, it's impossible to know with certainty whether you will grow further. If your growth plates are closed, then you're done, regardless of taking a supplement like hgh. If you're still growing and are truly below a reasonable height, you might qualify for medical therapy, but if you're 5'6" and want to be 6'2", then that's not really an appropriate use of those medications. ...Read more
