Biotin (vitamin B7) is used to prevent or treat low levels of vitamin B7 in people who do not get enough of the vitamin from their diets. Most people who eat a normal diet do not need extra vitamin B7. However, some conditions (such as pregnancy, parenteral nutrition, rapid weight loss) can cause low levels of vitamin B7.
How to Use Biotin
Take Biotin by mouth as directed, usually once daily. Follow all directions on the product package. If your doctor has prescribed Biotin, take it as directed. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. If you are taking chewable tablets, chew the tablet well and swallow. If you are taking extended-release tablets, swallow them whole. Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split extended-release tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing. If you are using the rapidly-dissolving tablet, allow the tablet to dissolve under the tongue and then swallow, with or without water. If you are using the liquid form of Biotin, carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Some liquid products need to be shaken before each dose. If you are using the powder form of Biotin, prepare the medication as directed by the product package. Take this vitamin regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. If your condition lasts or gets worse, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, get medical help right away.
Before taking biotin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to any of its ingredients; or if you have any other allergies. Biotin may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Chewable tablets or liquid products may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition that requires you to limit/avoid aspartame (or phenylalanine) in your diet, consult your doctor or pharmacist about using Biotin safely. Liquid forms of Biotin may contain sugar and/or alcohol. Caution is advised if you have diabetes, alcohol dependence, or liver disease. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about using Biotin safely. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Biotin should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Biotin passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you are taking Biotin on a regular schedule and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Biotin may interfere with certain lab tests, possibly causing false test results. Make sure lab personnel and all your doctors know you use Biotin.

The side effects of Biotin may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Biotin. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Biotin may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
