From this study (4 weeks ago):
At the first month of taking biotin is started to notice that my left eye was aching...so i waited to see what would happen next, and assure it was a stye. i started putting warm water on the stye also started squeezing it, not knowing that my eye would get worst, it did. i soon went to the E.R. after the stye left but continued to itch severely. they priscibed me a antibiotic eyedrops. i started taking it right away, the itching went away.
now im starting on my third stye......and i am still taking biotin.
From this study (5 months ago):
Treated Hep C for 72 weeks w/Peg alpha Interferon & Ribavirin protocol 2007-2009. Tinnitus worsened after treatment. Fibromyalgia started during treatment & did not improve after. Tried different pills to help the fibromyalgia with no luck until 10mg Amitriptyline pm/10mg Celexa am - helped. Weened off celexa 3 months ago in effort to decrease weight & stop tinnitus to no avail. Recently stopped Amitriptyline due to elevated liver functions. One month later - liver functions are now normal but tinnitus seemed to worsen & unable to sleep so I am now trying Amitriptyline every other day which is helping sleep but not so much the tinnitus!
From this study (12 months ago):
Extreme fatique when started using Luvox. Recently removed clonazepam and replaced it with diazepam. Tried Adderall for fatigue but caused high anxiety issues.

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- How many doses can i take?
I have been using cyproheptadine for two months now, twice a week. I have just ordered a hair pill call hairfinity which consist of biotin and should be taken 2 times a day. Is it good to take both pills at the same time? If not when can I take both? And how many should take a day?
- Has anyone experienced twitching of the eye lid while taking biotin?
I started taking biotin 10,000 mcg less than a week ago. For the last four days I've had a almost serve twitching in my left upper eye lid between my brow. I say severe because it's to the point that it's tingling and almost numb. I have an appt but was wondering if anyone experienced this?
- Is it safe to take phentermine and biotin together?
I'm taking Phentermine for weight loss but I used to take Biotin for metabolism and wonder if it's safe to take both together.
