If you take this, How much do you take? I've been taking it since before my surgery (8 months) and take 10,000 mcg, however I read a post the other day and they were taking two 10,000 mcg per day. Just curious.

I take 5000 mcg twice a day, well I try to take it twice a day but sometimes miss the nighttime dose. I began taking it about 2 months before surgery - so far so good, hair loss minimal :)

I was taking 5,000 mcg until about two weeks ago. I started taking 10,000 mcg then. I had VSG on 11/08/2013. Not sure yet if it's helping but I've noticed Hair loss recently so I'm hoping it helps.

5000 mcg a day but now I'm considering upping that to 10,000 mcg a day. I didn't know it was safe to take such high of a dose? but so many on here seem to take 10,000 mcg a day without any problems.

Natures Bounty has a great Vitamin that contains Biotin, it's for hair, nails and skin. I take 15,000. a day.

There is 5000 in one pill, but recommended in 3 pills per day.

It is working, never had nails before and hair is growing back.

I take 2 10,000mcg pills a day you just ask your doc I asked mine she said its fine not harmful so she doesn’t see why not.
Been taking that much for over a year no harm to me!

I take two 10,000mcg a day too, and have stronger nails than ever before! I was to the hair dresser the other week, and she said she sees the new growth coming in - I have lost some, but my hair length has also been on overdrive, so its compensated for it somewhat.

I take 10,000 mcg daily and I am 4 month post op and hair loss is next to none..just the usual strand here and there when styling. My nails grow like crazy.

I take 10, 000 mcg a day & my hair is still falling out like crazy. I have bald spots & have to be careful how I style my hair. It started falling out when I was 3 mths po & I am now just over 7 mths po & praying it stops or at least slows down some soon. I get huge handfuls in the shower & my brushes everyday. But I know it will grow back & it is a minor upset to deal with along my journey.

I take 10,000 a day. It didn't stop my hair from falling out but has helped with regrowth. I have a ton coming back in, I'm a year out.

I'm over a year out and I've been taking 5,000 and it honestly really hasn't helped. Now that I know it's safe to take 10,000 I'm going to up my dose. My hair is so thin and you can practically see my scalp in front, I have to part it way to the side :( thanks for the info all!
