I picked up some Biotin too. I heard to prevent hair loss, you need to take 3mg of it a day. I'm not sure how that transfers from the mcg.

one gram=1000000 mcg, so 1 mg= 1000 mcg. Yay, I knew all this ridiculous pharmacology math homework would pay off!! :dance:

I take Biotin too...my hair has stayed on my head so far ; )

Be wary on the biotin, I used to have it in a multivitamin until I realised it was preventing the accutane having the same effect. I was still getting oily, I stopped the biotin sup (switched to a none biotin one) and accutane kicked back in.

Just be wary is all, you may be making the accutane less effective, but if the hair loss is significant its worth it (or a lower dose of tane maybe).
