don't know if this is typical but the nails of my left hand are definitely outdoing the length on the right

Try taking Nettle, makes your hair and nails grow like crazy and it's much easier on the stomach.

I started taking biotin 5000mcg about a year ago, I wasn't taking any other supplements at the timem just biotin by itself and i noticed a little bit of a difference.   This past march, i decided to try a program that consisted on a hair, skin and nails formula from GNC, as well as msm 1000mg, flax seed oil, and inositol 500mg.  
 
  It definetaly changed something because about 3 weeks later I noticed my nails were no longer brittle, and my hair grew a little over an inch and improved in thickness...
 
I will say though, becareful when taking supplements..DO YOUR RESEARCH!  Taking synthetic supplements from lets say cvs or walgreens may not be organic or natural, and may have TONSSS of fillers causing negative side effects etc. 
 
But question????  Why does everyone say that msm should sink to the bottom of a glass of water????

I've been taking biotin for a week and the first thing I've noticed is smooth, soft, supple skin. I'm loving the results. <3

My nails do the same thing, my only guess is that its because im right handed so the nails on my right hand are exposed to more damage or "work" i guess....i also notice the break alot more and faster on my right hand too.....but like i said, just a guess...

Definitely experiencing more acne. Still not quite deterred though. It's hard to get my hands on loads and loads of water, especially at work (itty bitty cups and many many trips to the kitchen get annoying). Apparently 2 liters isn't enough to keep the acne away >:|

I don't wanna jinx myself but monday makes 3 weeks since I have been taking it and it seems as though I've gained an inch and a half of hair... my hair has been 2 inches past APL for some years now and it came close to 3.5+ when I pulled a random strand down in the car mirror while checking out my makeup.  I was like whatttttt!! Hopefully it's not a fluke.

Going to continue and try to drink more water. Does anyone know how safe combining say ... all 3 vitamins? flaxseed,nettle, and biotin.. Is that safe? Anyone tried it.?

Yes, Ive tried it and its safe as long as the supplements you are taking are natural/organic and not synthetic.   The breakouts could also be from synthetic supplements as well.

Do not take more more than the recommended daily allowance of Biotin. All you do is overload your system, and make your liver and kidneys work harder to extract the excess. Unless your doctor tells you, that your are vitamin B deficient.

Im sorry to hear that:/
Are you taking it on an empty stomach? or too soon after eating?
I take 1000mcg every day about 10-15 minutes after i eat breakfast and i feel fine
