Re: Niacin
Dec 21, 2007
My doc started me at 500 mg per day, then we increased to 1000 where I've been ever since with very good results.

My opinion is it's important to be under a doctor's supervision when taking therapeutic doses of niacin whether OTC or Rx, and to get the necessary bloodwork (liver function, etc.) on a regular schedule.

Hi Connie,

Well said. I am fully undercare with my Doctor as well. Even though Niacin is a, "B Vitamin", when you take a higher doesage it acts like a medication and needs to be treated that way.
