For those of you who have tried Biotin and then had to wind up "abandoning ship" (so to speak) from horrid and painful, migraine-like headaches, how soon after you started taking Biotin did you feel the massive discomfort of the headache? Was it right away or were you on it for a few days, weeks, months before the headache hit in all its splendor?
I've been taking a hair vitamin supplement with Biotin in it for 9 days today. I got what I thought was the beginnings of a sinus headache last night and I took my sinus medicine hoping it would be gone by morning. NOT! Today it's been off and on all day. It has lessened in intensity but I still feel this dull ache on my right temple that will not completely go away. I've been continuing to take my sinus medicine and it doesn't seem to be working. It then occurred to me that maybe the Biotin in the supplements I'm taking could be causing the headache? My sinus medicine has usually kicked in by now to knock the headache out. Now it's going on 24 hours since this headache started and it's annoying as well as painful.
Anyhoo, anyone who has experience with this, please jump in. Thanks!
I'd leave it alone ASAP. What you're experiencing is the body's way of saying;"I don't like this stuff." I never taken the stuff but I've had family members who did and they complained about all sorts of crazy side effects while on it.
It turned out that it WAS a sinus headache; the pain had nothing to do with the biotin. Every now and then I get a really bad sinus headache that drags on and on and would probably rival anybody's migraine headache in pain intensity. That's the way it's always been for me and probably always will be...
Anyhoo, my sinus meds finally kicked in and it's been smooth sailing since.
