Things you MUST NOT DO while on this medicine?

If Biotin is used with anticonvulsants the concentration of Biotin in plasma can be decreased due to the increase of his excretion with urine. Valproic acid reduces activity of biotinidase by diminishing of the mitochondrial function in the hepar.
The albumen of raw egg contains protein avidin, which co-operates with biotin, therefore it is necessary to avoid their simultaneous use. The use of plenty of raw eggs during 2 – 3 weeks can cause the biotin deficiency.
The Pantothenic acid being used in large doses competes with biotin therefore it is necessary to avoid their simultaneous application.

Clinical pharmacology.

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES:

Biotin (vitamin H, vitamin B7) is a water-soluble vitamin of B group. In human organism it plays an important role in metabolism of carbohydrate, fatty acids and proteins, and it is essential for normal cells growth and development. In introduction in organism it works as carboxylases coenzyme, causes insulin-mimetic action and takes part in gluconeogenesis (due to involvement into glucokinase syntesis) and in such way promotes stabilizing of sugar contents in blood, improves the function of nervous system. Biotin is a synergist of other B vitamins group, folic acid, pantothenic acid, cyanocobalamin. There is data concerning Biotin role in purine nucleotides synthesis. Biotin is also the source of sulfur that takes part in collagen protein synthesis and in such way it has a positive influence on the structure of skin and its appendages (hair, nails). Biotin enters the human organism from food and it is also synthesized by human intestine microflora.
In organism Biotin is rapidly absorbed in small intestine by a passive diffusion, and after that it passes through a portal system into liver and then into system circulation. The level of Biotin binding with plasma proteins is approximately 80%. Concentration of free or weakly bound Biotin in blood as a rule is from 200 to 1200 mkg/l. Biotin passes through a hematoencephalic and placental barriers. In organism it is metabolized with different metabolites formation. Biotin is excreted with urine (from 6 to 50 μg per day) and with feces in unchanged form (approximately 50%) and also as biologically inert metabolism products. Half-life period depends on the amount of given dose and it is about 26 hours after inner introduction of 100 μg per kg of body weight.
