Ronin, To follow the trial that was done by MedDay - you need to take 100mg x 3 times a day. This is with the pure pharmaceutical grade powder biotin. The over the counter - OTC -capsules contain only a small amount of biotin and lots of fillers.
l bought my biotin from Bulk Supplements US. lt cost me £120 - including the shipping for 100grams. This is enough for the high dose for 333days. So not a bad price considering. l also bought some Smart Weigh scales to weigh it on as it is such a small amount to take. l use a piece of rice paper placed onto the scale first - then switch it on and place a small amount onto it - its about half the size of a pea. Some people put the whole days dose 300mg into a small bottle of water and keep sipping at it during the day. Which does seem a good idea - and means you can carry it out with you.
Glad you are up for trying it - and l do hope it will soon start helping you. Such a lot of good comments on it for bladder control. Look for some previous comments on this PPMS site.
l am not sure what 500yp means either. l know when l first heard about biotin - l bought several bottles of the OTC biotin - 10,000mcg and needed to take 30 to get the right amount. But as they contain so many fillers - you find you are taking too much calcium and magnesium. Although, l did find some brands that had more harmless fillers - What make are your tablets - l can look them up - and also l will find out others as well. lts worth taking a good B Complex along with the biotin. l use Swansons Super Stress B Complex. And l take a high dose B12 as well as Vit D3.
The first OTC biotin l used was lnnopure - then l bought Natrol. But to get the pure powder is the best way - and it only takes about 5 days for it to arrive. l bought my scales from amazon. They are a sort of jewellers scale - that l weigh ‘‘my stash’’ on!! Bulk Supplements might also sell the scales.
Biotin will also lower blood sugars - so really suitable for anyone diabetic - as long as they monitor their blood sugar.
