I'm Ashish I'm 20 years old. I wanted to know how can I grow my height. I'm 5.5 ft. Is there any medicine or injection to grow fast.?

Unlikely to happen: The growth centers of your bones determine how tall you can grow. Most growth centers will close at 16-19 years of age in males. After that happens, you can not grow taller.
