Solution contains 60 micrograms of biotin per vial. If you are going to have laboratory tests, you must tell your doctor or the laboratory staff that you are taking or have recently taken Soluvit, as biotin can affect the results of these tests. Depending on the test used, results may be falsely elevated or falsely decreased due to biotin. The doctor may ask you to stop taking Soluvit before the laboratory tests. You should also be aware that other products you may be taking, such as multivitamins or supplements for hair, skin, and nails, may also contain biotin and affect the results of laboratory tests. Inform your doctor or laboratory staff if you are taking such products.
