However, while IRON is required for life, excess iron is toxic. Only take extra iron when truly needed. ...Read more

Sounds possible: Minoxidil inside one's body can lower blood pressure. The amount of Minoxidil entering the body is hard to predict and depends on things such as the condition of the skin, the number of applications per day, the amount of skin that receives minoxidil, and the length of time it stays on the skin. One can work with his doctor and do trials on & off minoxidil, while monitoring for dizziness symptoms. ...Read more

The longer you take Lithium the more likely you will have low thyroid which may result in hair loss but is easy to treat. You can begin to understand the condition only after you see an expert. ...Read more

No one knows: The internet is full of accounts of folks who believe big doses of biotin help hair, cradle cap, diabetes and much else. 5 mg is 5000 micrograms, in the lowish-range. Seems safe. The online reports from users are anecdotal; anyone can have a single pimple or short acne flare at any time, and people taking huge doses don't predictably get acne. Suspect "faces in the clouds".
