Niacin & drug te: The CDC states that no clinical research exists to suggest that taking Niacin will help anyone pass a drug test of any kind. But I know how to pass a drug test...don't take drugs.

Some niacin preparations are in alcohol and if you took it shortly before a drug test it could give you a positive test for alcohol. Make sure the person administering the test knows anything you are taking prior to the test rather than having to explain afterwards.
