There shouldn't be.  Because biotin B7 completes all the Vitamin B Complex. And it plays a role in energy production, and it's commonly used to remediate neurological problems. There are common signs and symptoms of biotin B7 deficiency, though. It's a water-soluble micro-nutrient, easily used up in the body for energy. 

Biotin is also obtained from food.

Yes I agree, I used to take biotin as well. Have had no issues. Side effects could be skin rash or things like kidney problems. But I haven’t experiences any of them.

Vitamins and supplements can have a negative effect on some medications and medical conditions. There are currently no known adverse side effects of biotin when taken as prescribed by a doctor or through normal dietary intake.

Biotin seems to be safe and well-tolerated, even at fairly high levels. The maximum safe dose of biotin is unknown. If you have any medical conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding check with a doctor before using biotin supplements. Don't give biotin to a child unless a pediatrician recommends it.

Biotin belongs to the group of B vitamins. It has functions such as thickness the hair and giving it the smooth shiny look. As always too much of something is always dangerous and poisonous. Hence its good to use it moderately in order to achieve better results.
