Is anyone taking biotin for hair and nails?  If so, what amount do you take?  My hair is growing in since my last chemo on 9/10/09, but SLOWLY.  I know I have seen that alot of gals use biotin and claim success with it.  I purchased a bottle of the pills at Walgreens, they are 100 mg. and it says take 1 a day - is that it?  Anyone that has used it, I would appreciate your telling me what your dosage was?  Thank you.

Linda biotin is usually sold as micrograms. I take 5 milligrams which is higher than a microgram.
However, the daily dosage recommended is 300 mcgrams.
So I would up the dosage next time you buy a bottle!

1,000 mcg = 1 mg
I am reading it from my Biotin bottle.

Just checked my bottle and it says 1,000 mcg, so I guess I would need to take 5 of them, instead of the one I have been taking each a.m.  Thanks so much for all the help.
