Delayed union

Hi there. I broke my tibia and fibula last year in a car accident. It was an open fracture. I have IM nail in the tibia. 5 months later and the x-rays show a delayed union. Is there anything i can take to improve this or is it just a matter of time? I''m only taking calcium, magnesium and vit B supplement at the moment. thanks
