Biotin Consent / Contraindications

Precare, Aftercare & Consent

An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles. This allows the medication to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly. 



-Do not consume alcohol at least 24 hours before undergoing Biotin injections, as alcohol can thin the blood and increase the possibility of bruising.

-You should also avoid medications like Blood Thinners, Aspiriin or Anti Inflammatories for 3 days prior to your treatment.

*Please ensure you have thoroughly read all Contraindications below*




Common side effects of a Biotin Injection include but are not limited to:

Mild diarrhoea, upset stomach, nausea, a feeling of pain and a warm sensation at the site of the injection, a feeling, or a sense, of being swollen over the entire body, headache and joint pain.

If any of these side effects become severe or troublesome I will contact my doctor immediately.

I understand that although rare Vitamin injections can result in serious side effects. Although this is a relatively rare occurrence, anyone taking Vitamin injections should be aware of the possibility.

Uncommon side effects are much more serious than the common side effects of Vitamin B12 Injections, and such side effects should be reported to a doctor to be evaluated for seriousness.

Uncommon and dangerous side effects include:

• headache
• nausea
• diarrhea
• bloating
• constipation
• indigestion or heartburn
• skin rashes
• fever
• upset stomach
• kidney problems
• restlessness
• muscle cramps and weakness
• dizziness

I understand the possibility of having an allergic reaction is quite plausible and that I should communicate with my Physician if I have any known allergic reactions to foods, dyes, preservatives, or any other substances. If I experience any of these following signs of allergic reactions I should immediately consult my doctor and discontinue further use of Biotin injections.

Signs of allergic reactions include, but not limited to:

  • Itching of skin
  • Hives
  • Rashes
  • Wheezing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of mouth or throat
