Hi!adu,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Most of the companies available in the market have biotin either 5mg or 10 mg.But there are literatures which says that even less would be enough for hair loss.Most commonly used dosage by dermatologist is 5mg daily.

During the last fortnight, my dr. has prescribed magnesium and alpha lipoic for migraines and biotin for dry and split nails. Now my pee smells like i eat brussel sprouts 24 hours a day. Would any of these vitamins cause this odour? I am 50 years old and have stopped having any menopausal symptoms for 1 year. They started at age 44 and now are done. Any idea? Thanks in advance.
