Improvements??

Postby Music » Mon Sep 19, 2016 7:33 am

Has anyone who's had this MS thing for awhile had any improvements while on the high doses of Biotin? Have been taking Biotin for a year and haven't seen one thing improve. Thought at least the nails on my right hand would. Need to order more Biotin if I'm going to stay on it.

Thanks!

Yes, I have seen a number of small improvements (so has my physio) in less than 9 months.
Starting from EDSS of 6.5, I did not expect a major improvement.
However if it does not work for you, then it probably won't. Most medication is like that (boo, hiss).
Still, if you are SPMS, what else is there to try except some of the off-the-wall treatments.

Hi Dr Geoff,
Have you experienced any constipation issues or other side effects with biotin?

Hi Phil
No constipation issues, but maybe (just maybe) Biotin has been responsible for increased spasticity in my legs.
This was no problem until after 6 months of Biotin - then both legs started going into hyperextension and relaxing again after 15-20 seconds.
I believe that this has been reported elsewhere.
