    WARNING: taking Niacin (Vitamin B-3) at only 500 MG/ day cost me dearly! My neurologist(a specialist in a sub-type of neurology of which there are only dozen in the US) determined it was toxic causing me total failure of my autonomic nervous system (autonomic polyneuropathy) and these nerves don't grow back! Thanks to that soon after I noticed the problems I continue to deal with 10 yrs later. ... Show Full Comment

    Started taking Niacin 50mg daily and slowly increased to 150mg after each meal (450mg/d). Rite Aid was only place I found that sells 100mg tabs and so I half one with pill cutter.

I stopped flushing when my body adjusted to dosage but I've also found I am much calmer. ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking niacin for over a year now. I take 2000 mg in the morning with breakfast. It is the quick release. Sure I flush, but it is gone in 15 minutes. I did build myself up to the 2000mg slowly. My blood work is great, It also helped my spider veins go away in my legs.
