^^^ Biotin is water soluable so any excess is eliminated.  I take my supplements half in the morning and half in the evening.  I started with 2,000 then 2weeks later 3,000 then 2 weeks later 4,000.......I was at 5,000 for well over a month and just went to 6,000 mcgs about 4 days ago.  I will stay at the 6,000 mcgs level for a couple of months since I am already seeing thickness in my new growth from the lower dosage.  My hair strands seem thicker and stronger.
 
I use the Target brand as well (Origin). Thumbs%20Up

Thanks ladycc,Clap I was just going by what the bottle said. I think I want to increase it to 2,000-3,000mcg's, I need thickness especially on my edges.

I take 5000 mcg now, I want to add 1000mcg of MSM to see if I can achieve more growth faster.

I've always used them together. I use them off and on because they grow my hair and my mustache. The mustache is not cute!!

I just started taking biotin, 3,000 mcg (i think that's the rite unit)  boy I hope I don't grow a stache. that would not be cool.  I've got a hair free face and I'd like to keep it that way. lol
