Biotin Pre Op


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am about 1 month away from having my HT. I have been advised by the doctor to now start using Biotin.

I have read some stuff on the internet about breakouts of acne due to Biotin.


Has anyone had any experience with this. What have been your experiences with Biotin so far.


Also, which brand did you use and how many mcg? There are alot of brand and mcg variations out there.


Thanks for help!

I've never heard the acne issues before. Furthermore, I think most probably just buy generic biotin from drug stores or large chain stores with pharmacy departments. I believe 1,000 mcg/day is the standard dose, but many patients take quite a bit more. You may want to shoot the physician an email and ask the dosage he/she recommends.


Good luck!
