In brief: Not harmful, depends

Biotin is very safe; there is no known toxic dose.
Biotin combined with 600 mcg of chromium picolinate significantly reduces blood sugar in those with type 2 diabetes, but if you don't have diabetes you may not have any particular benefits. See http://lpi.Oregonstate.Edu/infocenter/vitamins/biotin/.
