When to take biotin (morning or night)?

Since I had so much success with the MSM to reduce shedding I'm now going to get serious with biotin to speed up growth.
I have been taking 450mcg with my multi and hair vitamins for a while and I can't say it did much so far.
Today I got myself a package of 40 daily tablets with 5mg biotin each - I think I should be able to notice a difference, if there is any, by the time I finished the lot.

Now I think I remebered a post saying that large doses of biotin either make you sleepy or keep you awake (and thus should be taken in the evening, repectively in the morning). The trouble is that I'm not sure which one of the two it was, and I'm not even sure if it was biotin or a different supplement.

Does anyone happen to know?

TIA!

Cheers,
Madeleine

but to take it at night because it will work better, not related to sleepiness or lack thereof

i take my prescription medicine at night and the doctor told me not to take vitamins at the same time. anyways, i haven't had a problem with being sleepy; in fact in my natural health magazine i remember reading that some of the b vitamins can increase your energy... who knows:)

I've been taking the biotin at night for a week now and experienced no sleeping problems (well, at least not more than usual).
My shedding increased again though - not sure if that's related to the biotin, but I'll keep an eye on it ...

Cheers,
Madeleine
