I have been taking large amounts of biotin for months for hair loss. My hair has been growing back and looks much thicker. Three weeks ago a blood test showed my liver enzymes to be four times higher than normal. I stopped the biotin and a test last week showed my levels to be way down. I don't want to stop taking it but I don't want liver problems either. Help!
I am a 25 year old female and I suffer from depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. I do not act as I do though, I fight my depression, I rise above and I conquer it every single day BUT when I take biotin I cannot rise above the depression. Biotin is a great vitamin, I just would never recommend it to anyone who suffers from depression.
Hello, in my early 20s I developed gastro-intestinal issues. I was prescribed Tagamet initially, but it never seemed to adequately manage the condition and I eventually developed a secondary condition called gynecomastia so I was taken off the Tagamet. Over the next 10 years I tried a myriad of other drugs. Pepcid, zantac, stelabid #2, prepulcid, pariat, pantloc and 1 or 2 that I may have forgotten. The majority of these drugs did little or virtually nothing to control the hyper- acidic conditition. In the early 90s I had finally found something that worked exceptionally well, Omeprazole (Losec). I had been taking 20mg daily right up until early 2016. Losec had become relatively ineffective at this time and I was briefly put on Pantoloc. Pantoloc like many previous drugs, was ineffective. In March of 2016, I began taking Dexilant and it has controlled my condition relatively well up until recently, when I was diagnosed with elevated liver enzymes (somewhere in the 300s, when it should be in the 30s.). While I enjoy the odd drink, I am not someone who consumes "alcoholic" proportions. I have had a few "stomache aches" over the past few months that tend to come and go and the doctor suspects it could be gallbladder related. I am due to have an abdominal assesment on Sept. 19. I will post a follow up then. I hope the information that I've provided will benefit the group.

I am a chronic migraine sufferer. Over the years I discovered that my trigger is sugar levels and is caused by an over-reactive pancreas. Perhaps some allergies too, like gluten. I really researched this, tested, saw specialists of all kinds. When I watch my diet, I don't get the migraines. I ...
