Overdosing on Biotin: An Overview
is a water-soluble B vitamin (also known as vitamin B7
or vitamin H). It is not known exactly what to expect from a biotin overdose, but it seems that a biotin overdose is unlikely to cause serious problems in most situations. However, if you happen to overdose on biotin, seek immediate medical attention.
As a water-soluble vitamin, biotin is not particularly dangerous in the case of overdose. Any excess is usually excreted through the urine, without causing any problems.
Treatment for a Biotin Overdose
Treatment for a biotin overdose (if necessary) will probably involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have overdosed on biotin.
