    There have been no side effects or risks reported from using biotin. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the B complex of vitamins and is not stored in the body; it is naturally processed as it helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and supplementation is considered safe. If you experience any adverse reactions using biotin (vitamin B-7, vitamin H), contact your doctor.
