Have been taking 2000 mcg per day for 4 months. Nails are still brittle, hair is still falling out and now I'm getting huge zits on my face. I want to stick it out for a few more months since it takes approx. 9 months for nails to grow out.

Been taking for about 3-4 months and I love it! I am 75 and my nails have been peeling and cracking for the past few years. Now I have to get a manicure so they don't get TOO long. I take 1000mcg a day. May reduce the amount soon.

As I've gotten older my hair has naturally thinned a bit. A stylist told me to take biotin. I'm not sure if it's helped that but I was having a horrible time with peeling, fragile nails. That was a new development for me. After I'd been taking the biotin for a couple of months, I noticed that my nails were much stronger and stopped peeling.

I started taking Biotin when my nails would no longer grow and would crack and peel all the way to the quick. After a couple of months they were growing and I could get a manicure. An added benefit, is every time I get a haircut, I am told my hair is so healthy to keep doing what I'm doing! I have been taking Biotin for about 7 years.

Comment:
I began taking Biotin 5000 after my nails developed ridges and became brittle. After 3 months my nails were long, strong and the ridges are gone. I do plan to decrease my daily dose after reading articles that suggest it may decrease effectiveness of statin medication.
