Niacin Flush Free Medication
Can taking niacin and experiencing a niacin flush help cease ototoxic medication induced tinnitus by improving circulation to my middle ear?
Maybe: In theory, Niacin helps increase blood flow. Taking a supplement has also helped some folks subjectively. So, some who take Niacin may notice improvement in their tinnitus, but it is likely not from the added circulation. Ototoxic damage is not reversed by increased blood circulation. ...Read more

Discuss with MD: Yes but Flush free has less side effects. Niacin is no good for lowering bad cholesterol. It may improve (a little) the good cholesterol and the best effect is on triglycerides. BUT, newer studies show NO benefits in mortality rates or frequency of heart attacks or strokes. Indication of Niacin has become more questionable since you may improve "numbers" but you do NOT improve outcomes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many forms: Niacin is notorious for flushing with itching in the skin about 10-20 minutes after taking the pill. It comes in many forms - none are truly flush free.

Good question.: The niacinamide form of Niacin is a b vitamin (it's in your cereal) which does not lower cholesterol like the nicotinic acid form of niacin. Since nicotinic acid causes flushing, makers have tried changing the formulation so it's "flush-free" but will still lower cholesterol. The active ingredient of your cholesterol-lowering Niacin preparation should always be nicotinic acid. ...Read more

Will niacin flush free do the same effects as regular nician to detox from thc? Please help me docs!
No: Niacin doesn't flush anything out, it just makes you turn red and warm, but is not proven to eliminate any other drug. You should be more concerned about 1) having a drug problem 2) being subjected to drug testing when you have a drug problem and 3) being more concerned about getting caught than the harm your drug problem is causing. Modern drug testing includes means to identify efforts to mask. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Am not getting niacin in India. Triglycerides 200+. Other lipids normal. regular walk. Cardio from 3 yrs. No improvement seen. Pls suggest medication?
Leave it alone: Some of my colleagues here will disagree. I do not believe in treating isolated hypertriglyceridemia. After fifty years, nobody's showed any real evidence that this is a risk factor for anything beyond being perhaps your body's way of asking for more exercise. Why not try getting some fitness stuff going instead? You're only 35; you could be far fitter than your peers, buffed up, easily. ...Read more
