Biotin for hair strength/growth??
Has anyone here ever taken Biotin, the vitamin supplement for hair strength/growth??
I have autoimmune disease and started taking Methotrexate, which is a very strong medication for my my disease. Methotrexate is also used in cancer patients as a form of chemotherapy. Since I started taking this medication (about 4 months now) I have been noticing that my hair is thinner than it used to be.
I also take folic acid pills to help with the side effects of the Methotrexate. I told my doctor that I am still very concerned about my hair thinning and want to do anything I can so that it does not thin out much more.. He told me to take Biotin 5000 mcg daily. After researching Biotin online I read a lot of stuff that it can cause cystic acne and hair growth in other places I don't want hair growth!!
Has anyone ever taken this before?? If yes, what has your experience been? Or can anyone recommend anything else I can take/do to help my hair grow??
