Hi Shera,

how much biotin did you take in the months post op?.

the plan is to take 600 mcg each day until the 3 months point post op and then to increase the dosage to give boost, i thought about 5000 mcg, but i don't know if it's too much.

what about MSM?, do i need to take it and if yes, what dosage do you think i can take at the 3 months point?

thanks.

Hi,

First off, you are probably taking 6000mcg not 600mcg right now. It can get quite confusing when dealing with mcg and mg. Basically 1mg = 1000mcg.......maths lesson over!

I actually took the same dosage that I take now 5000mcg (5mg), which is the same dosage most of the patients I manage take too. Therefore I would say 5000mcg will be fine for you.

As for MSM, if you are taking it for any of its prescribed medical reasons, then it shouldn't be a problem, otherwise I wouldn't really bother. It has not been clinically proven to boost hair.

600mcg is quite a small dosage, you will be OK to increase this quite dramatically.

As for MSM, I've not heard of anyone taking it post op when they are taking Biotin. I really can't see the gain.

Thank you so much for your help.

i will increase the dosage to 2400 mcg (4 pills a day to finish my current bottle), starting next week and i will see if it's good for me and not cause any outbreak and if it's ok i will increase it in a month to 5000.

i will finish the MSM i got.

is there anything else i should take during those first months post op?

Biotin (as mentioned)
Minoxidil 5%
Finasteride 1mg will theoretically enhance your result by giving the many native hairs that you still had in the proposed implantation area a better chance of recovery.

I don't want to use any kind of pills or even Minoxidil, i guess that's why i was recommended MSM.

if someone takes MSM daily i would like to know what is a good dosage.

thanks.

Guys, what is your opinion about adding Brewer's Yeast with vitamin B supplements to what i already take daily:

what Brewer's Yeast give to the body, it adds vitamins B?, should i add vitamin B to what i take?

Biotin 5000 mcg, MSM 1000 mg, vitamin B12, vitamin D.

thanks.
