Is biotin (vitamin h) more common in pill form or im injection? And do you need a script for it?

In brief: Biotin

Biotin is in the "b complex" family, and is not commonly deficient.
Some foods contain it, and bacteria in your intestine make it. It's available in both multivitamin form and as a single supplement -- most often in pill form rather than im. It's water soluble, which means your body doesn't store it. You don't need a prescription for it. http://tinyurl.com/ksnwg4y.

In brief: In the US, is pill

One can buy it over the counter at health food stores here.
Not so sure in other areas of the world. May need to discuss with your pcp your intent for using it, to see if it is going to be useful.
