I have my new batch of biotin being shipped from purebulk, no prescription. They do ask for some explanation/proof that you understand/ability with the dosing. They only had 10g or 100g bags available, so I went with the 100g, By my calculations, that should give me just under a years worth. Or in reality, enough until the dust settles and the confusion clears up.1eye wrote:I think the trial they did showed efficacy at 300 mg per day. That would be 3 x 100mg capsules per day at $1 per capsule. Not highway robbery, I guess, and he's supposed to have "the same biotin" used in the trial. I don't know what the results of the chemical analysis that someone said he was doing were, but I think the stuff's extraction is probably OK.ElliotB wrote: I did contact Skip's earlier today and they sell 300 capsules of 100mg for $300. You do need a prescription and I am going to get one and see if it is covered by my insurance. It should be but if it is not, I will just continue to take the OTC Biotin I have been taking for the past few weeks, 80mg per day (40 in the AM, 40 in the PM).
That's $3 a day or about $1k /year. I hope some vendor breaks the "gas war", and steals all the business. They won't even prescribe me conventional DMDs, but I will build a "buyers' club" if I have to.
I just went and checked today, and they are now also out of 100g bags of it, only 10g bags are left.
By my calculations, it is costing me about $AUD0.72 for 3x100mg capsule (ie per day), ignoring the filler cost and the time to create the capsules, and the equipment (ie capsule filler) I already had. ie just the cost of the Biotin and the capsules.
And on a side note, I am not on Facebook; "conscientious objector".
