can i take biotin while taking levothyroxin(levothyroxine)?

So i was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism after giving birth to my son back in feb. of this year and have been taking levothyroxine since. in the past 2 months i have been going bald literally speaking i have like 3 bald spots bigger then a quarter and im 21 years old its horrible. Can i take Biotin while taking my medication? I am also taking one a day vitamins and calcium. Also I am so fatigued, and the doct said i would stop gaining weight after a couple of months of treatment, i haven't gained much more weight but cant seem to loose any what can i do? diets dont seem to help.

For the bald spots -- see a dermatologist to find out why this is happening.
In general, it is best to take vitamins and supplements separate from levothyroxine, but you may take biotin while taking levo, but at a different time of day ideally.
