Biotin is a water soluble vitamin, thus it is not stored in your fat cells. For most individuals, it is safe. I would give your doctor a call just to alert him/ her that you are on biotin in the event that it may interfere with any medications you are on (which is very rare).

I have seen a tremendous difference in my patients' hair and skin with regular use of biotin!
