Biotin needed for 2g of B5?

I've taken 2g of B5 a day with much success for the last month and a half. I haven't noticed any hairloss/thinning, but I was wondering if it would be necessary to take a biotin supplement to ensure that this doesn't happen? Or is 2g not a high enough dosage to have to worry about this?

it surely wouldnt hurt to take it, but if you are going to get hairloss from b5, it has nothing to do with a biotin deficiency. b5 is an anti androgen, and the hairloss would be related to the effects b5 has on hormones, NOT vitamin deficiency.
