Does HGH Increase Height?

Will HGH make you taller than you naturaly would get?
or does it only make you reach your naturaly height faster?

i believe it depends at what age you take it, may be wrong though

If your growth plates have fused excess GH will produce acromegaly, pre-fusing it will cause gigantism (acromagaly with height basically)

So hgh would be better to take before my growth plates closes while im 18yo?
im 5’11 only looking to increase a inch or two
