Niacin Bad Trip
« on: October 06, 2014, 10:19:58 pm »
Kwn wrote about this on the other board and I told him I was going to copy it out:

"Something weird happened today as well.  I am taking niacing for the last 3 weeks.   It was a slow release niacin, and if I take it with meal - no effect.  If it is on empty stomach, I feel skin tingling, and hands show red rash.  It is itchy sometimes, but goes away after 30-60 minutes.  This effect is well know with niacin.  Today I took a different brand, 500 mg, NON-slow release, in the morning, on empty stomach.  On the way to work I felt nuclear tingling, my face and hands went purple.  I went to bathroom - turns out my whole body was red as if I had a massive sunburn.  Then heart went into racing mode.  In about 2 hrs it all subsided, but it was rather scary shit."

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Welcome to the niacin world. I've been taking it for almost 8 years and it doesn't make no difference. It will come on every once in while unexpected. I have had all your symptoms, but it only last about 15 minutes. If you're going to take it you realize this will happen any time. I have taken the standard niacin and the slow action niacin and it doesn't make no difference. If you can stand the bad trips of niacin, it will help your cholesterol .

If this is happening once or twice a week may be back down on the medicine. For almost 7 years. I cannot get over 500 mg now at 500 mg twice a day. I have friends that do 3000 mg a day and nothing happens. Then all the sudden they get Severe flushing. But if you can hang in there. That's the best stuff around

From what I understand, this is part of Dr. Davis' plaque reversal protocol, at least some of the time...

Except cholesterol, what us the medical benefit if niacin?.  Does it help to rebalance neurotransmitters?

Very interesting question.  Hey, I don't really have time to research it right now, but this article was very interesting.  And, please, don't take the subject matter of this article personally!  I just happened to run across it:

http://blogs.mcgill.ca/oss/2013/08/06/is-niacin-a-possible-successful-treatment-for-schizophrenia/

This article talks about a researcher who noticed that schizophrenics had a buildup of adenocromes (or something like that) because they could properly metabolize adrenaline metabolites.  By giving high dose niacin and Vitamin C, he found improvement after a month.

I don't know the direct answer to your question, but I can tell you that many nutrients have been linked to various disorders (OCD, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, etc.).  And one comment:  gut issues will wreak havoc on proper digestion and nutrient levels.
