So you all are reading my story. Does anyone know anything about niacine? This is the med in question.
Do you mean niacin, without the e on the end? That’s more like a vitamin than a drug.
Yes I need more info on this vitamin
It helps moderately, but it’s not a full cure. I take it from time to time.
Reason it helps is that it tilts the metabolism of tryptophan away from kynurenic acid by increasing the production of kynurenine 3-monooxygenase, which is an enzyme that causes tryptophan to form other metabolites.
Kynurenic acid is one of the culprits behind schizophrenia. By acting as a potent NMDA antagonist, it causes schizophrenic symptoms.
