    Well, I decided to give biotin a trie after reading about its effectiveness on thinning hair. I began taking 5000 mcg once a day, however, I began having a feeling of a racing heart and stopped taking it. My daughter is a hair stylist and said she has had several clients mention this happening as well. I may try half the amount and see what happens.

    I tried to take biotin for hair loss. I became dizy, my joints ached, and it made me hungry all the time. I had thyroid cancer in 2003. I have a baby who just stopped breast feeding. Seems to risky to take.
