Hello again Jackiehawaii,

Thank you for your prompt and thorough reply. I think it's really nice that the CES devices you used helped with both your depression and your anxiety, and I find it particularly encouraging that the devices helped you when you were at a point of total fatigue. What you've written has certainly got me reconsidering trying at least one of these devices to see what effect they might have on me. And I also think that you've done a good job of describing the differences between the various CES devices that you've used. If I come up with any more questions about the devices, I will feel free to ask them.

Regarding niacin, thank you for letting me know that you've heard that niacin is a good supplement to take while also using the CES devices. I will say that I have personally tried the non-flush versions of niacin (niacinamide and inositol hexanicotinate) and that even though both versions helped some initially, I didn't find either to be at all effective for any of my symptoms after a few days. The regular niacin (nicotinic acid) that I take now has at least been helping with my concentration (and my energy, to a lesser extent) for a few weeks now. I don't know the extent to which my response to the niacin might change as time goes by, but for me, the nicotinic acid (flushing) version of niacin seems to have longer-lasting effects than the non-flush forms of the vitamin. Keep in mind, of course, that I'm just relaying my experiences with niacin and that others who've taken the vitamin may have different things to say about it. And also keep in mind that the niacin flush can be extremely uncomfortable -- especially when one first takes niacin -- even though it's said to be harmless. I was considering going to the emergency room the first time I flushed on niacin because the flush was that intense, but because I had read that the flush was harmless, I waited it out, and the flush went away.

Anyway, I'm sorry if I went on for too long about niacin, but I just wanted to thank you again for all of the information that you provided in your posts. I hope you're having a good 4th of July.

T(omatheus).
