Taking niacin 500mg two times a day


#1

I am taking Niacin 500mg a day. I have had schizophrenia over 50 years. I have taken most all medications at one time or the other. I am finding that taking the Niacin takes the edge off the sounds and hallucinations. At this time, all I take is the Niacin. I buy it over the counter for like 4 dollars per 100 tablets. That’s my experience so far


#2

I hate that warm tingly feeling from it. Do you get that feeling?


#3

I tried niacin. The beneficial effect wears off pretty quickly. Niacin has no antipsychotic properties. I’d see if you can get back on meds. Also 1g a day could affect your liver.


#4

Yes I experience the hot flashes but get used to them

Back in the 1950’s this b vit was being used to treat our illness, I tried it and it has helped me get over. We are all different in the ways things work for one and another. I think the man’s name was Dr. Huffman or Hoffman who began the research I lost the paper work on the info to help , sorry

I think Niacinamide is flush free.


#7

From what I read about niacin some people believe it helps them and some it didn’t help at all. It may help but not completely to get rid of positive symptoms

The normal niacin gives flush but is only like 4 dollars per 100 tablets. I am controlling symptoms with the Niacin. good luck


#10

You are correct. It is working for me and I have had issues with schiz since childhood.


#11

I agree with your statements. Nonetheless I am receiving positive results with supplementing with Niacin. I realize everyone may not gain anything by using it.


#12

The only thing I like about Niacin is the flush. It doesn’t really help me with positives or negatives.

what happened with NAC did you notice any difference?


#18

Apparently it takes 2-3 months to notice any effect. I’m still taking 1200mg a day. Nothing so far though.

Okay good luck. I have it but I am not taking it.
