I don't think you can take too much biotin as it is water soluble and what the body doesn't use ends up in the toilet. I found this on livestrong link below


Because biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, your body does not store the excess that builds up in your system. This means if you take more biotin than you need via supplementation, your body will likely release the extra biotin in your urine.


: I hope this works well for you. The way things like vitamins and such usually work is there is an initial response and then the body builds a tolerance, after which effects may diminish. Also, everyone's body responds to nutrients differently. It depends upon many factors, including your overall diet. Quickly reading a bit about it, it seems like Biotin (vit B7) is pretty safe in the dosage you're taking, but it wouldn't hurt to discuss it with your MD sometime soon.

: From Everyday Health:
: "Biotin Warnings

: Always check with your doctor before taking any supplement. Some conditions and medications can cause low levels of biotin.

: Tell your doctor if you are:

: On dialysis
: Smoke cigarettes
: Eat two or more raw egg whites daily
: Take medications for seizures
: Have been on a long-term course of antibiotics

: Biotin is a safe vitamin that is unlikely to cause side effects."
