I am not joking about this so be very careful what you take!!

I don't think there's a final word on this to be had. Unfortunately, I think the only way to know for sure how you'll respond to it or if it will help you is to try it out. I use it and have had no adverse side effects. I've also taken it for so long at this point in conjunction with other vitamins that it's probably hard to even attribute any positive outcome to Biotin alone.

so, i'm taking biotin 600mg each day, i read in all kind of places that people take very large dosage of biotin, maybe 5000, i read that like vitamin C biotin comes out the body through the urine, but should i take more biotin than i am taking now?

yesterday and today i noticed some pimples comes out around the mouth area. taking the biotin post op for about 13 days.

i'm drinking wheatgrass in the morning, at least for the first month. eat everyday 2 spoons of pumpkin seed, 2 spoons of Flaxseed, 10 almonds, and about 10 walnuts.
i try to drink fresh squeeze vegetables juice everyday too.

i'm taking supplements- MSM 500mg, B12, and vitamin D.

by the way, what is the different when it says like 10mg to 10ug?

thank you

In my opinion it's not worth any kind risk to health by taking large amounts of something over an extended period.
Hence these days I just have a multi hair vitamin supplement.

I actually posted on this thread a few years back. Its now been nearly 3.5 years I've been taking Biotin and I can definitely say it makes a difference, the obvious sign being it makes your finger nails stronger and grow faster.

The dosage I take is 5000 micrograms a day. I would say you're OK with the 6000mcg you are currently taking, alot of patients take 10,000mcg a day.

I've never heard anyone complain of any side effects from taking Biotin.
