    Biotin; Pros and Cons?

    I was considering taking supplements of Biotin lately, mostly to grow back my hair after a terrible haircut, but also for general skin health. I've heard it makes ALL the hair you have go crazy, so I'm curious;

    How bad can it get, and it stops once I stop taking the supplement, right?

    Hi I take Biotin, my doc has me taking it for the antifungal effect. ...I haven't noticed my hair anywhere growing out of control...

    I used 1000mg of Biotin for about one year because of thinning hair. It did nothing for me!!!!!!!
