Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Hi Im taking floradix &Vit B12 to cure anemia caused by low nutrition(Doc Prescribed)Along with im taking Biotin 5000mcg for shiny hair is that safe?
A large dose!: Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is part of B complex vitamins. It is best to take B vitamins together as they may act as cofactors for each other. There are no reported safety concerns about biotin taken with your other supplements, but 5000 mcg is a very large dose; the recommended daily requirement is only 30 mcg! At a minimum, cut it WAY BACK! ...Read more
Linked: It can help but there is natural biotin in most of the foods we eat.

25 yr F, hair loss from Hashimotos. Why does Womens Rogaine (minoxidil) have heart warnings, safe for average user? suggestions for hair loss? Armour Thyroid Rx.
1- 50mcg zinc and 2- 1000mcg biotin each per day. Is this safe? Zinc for sexual health and biotin for hair/nails/skin.
Safe yes. Effective?: Biotin and zinc are found naturally in a normal diet. Supplementation is rarely needed. The RDA of biotin is about 30 mcg/day. Whether high dose supplement promotes healthy hair/skin/nails is unknown, but it's probably safe. The RDA of zinc is about10 mg/day. I suspect you're taking 50 mg not 50 mcg ,which is safe,but there's no evidence that supplement beyond the RDA has any health benefits. ...Read more

Vitamin B7: Biotin, or vitamin b7, is found in lots of foods. It can also be made by the bacteria in your guts. Biotin requirements are not very high, and because it's both found in foods and made in our guts, deficiency is rare. It's very unlikely, and there is no evidence, that biotin supplements help with hair loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi ..I want to know the allowance recommended daily dose of vit A.. ?? And am taking hair supp provid 5000 iu does this dose cause hypervitamonosis ??
Yes: Vitamins, especially A, are best obtained from foods. You cannot get Vit.A toxicity from food. But preformed Vit.A from pills can cause birth defects, dry skin, hair loss, etc. Do not take over 3000 units. Do not take any if you might become pregnant. Why in the world would any "hair supplement" contain any Vit.A at all? Stop being a sucker and eat your vegetables. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For faster hair growth can I consume 5000mg biotin , prenatal or folic acid , multivitamins, 3000mg fish oil pills daily? Is is safe?
Yes, safe but...: Taking all of the things you mention is quite safe. However, there is no guarantee this will result in faster hair growth; if you are deficient in any of those (which is actually quite common) then it should help somewhat; if not deficient then it won't do much for your hair but may still have other health benefits.

Hypothyroidism. 2500 mcg biotin daily. I just started taking dobble dose . Reason hair loss. Is that too much?!thanks in advance
Biotin: Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin, so excess amounts in your blood get filtered out by the kidneys and don't accumulate, so there is low risk of toxicity. Biotin is unproven in improving hair loss, so increasing doses above standard supplements is unlikely to provide any additional benefit. Biotin occurs naturally in leafy green vegetables, particularly swiss chard, and peanuts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
