Niacinamide success?

Posted by uncouth on March 17, 2012, at 13:10:24

hi my integrative doctor suggested i may want to eventually try 1g of niacinamide 3x/day. Has anyone had success with high doses like this for depression or bipolar disorder? It used to be used in high dosages for alcoholism too i know. I wonder why my traditional psychiatrist has never suggested it.

SLS have you ever tried high dose niacinamide?

I take 1.5 grams x 2 daily. Helps a good bit.

I would be very interested to hear how it helps and what kind of effects does it have?

Initially, it doesn't do much, unless you take it with a benzo. Then you get more mileage out of the benzo.I recommend niacinamide for benzo tapers.

With the correct additional supplements (usually high dose c, e, zinc, b-100), it helps tremendously. For me, less social phobia. Less physical tension. Better concentration. Also, it improved my rosacea and anxiety-induced skin problems.

Upset stomach was a problem on starting and when I stopped and re-started (dumb move on my part).

I think it new reasearch says it doesn't work for lowering colestol. It did nothing for me in terms of anxiety so when it seemed that it wasn't helping my colestrol I dropped it
