The Differences Between Niacinamide Nicotinamide
Lipid effect, flush: Niacin is a b vitamin that is often used to treat lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) disorders. Nicotinamide is another vitamin in the vitamin b group. Although Niacin and nicotinamide are identical in their vitamin activity, nicotinamide has no significant cholesterol or triglyceride effects. Also, nicotinamide does not cause skin flushihg that can be a limitation to use of niacin. ...Read more
Niacinamide fights against both sun damage such as discoloration and skin cancers and acne. One product line called NIA 24 has a particularly effective form of Niacinamide. (I use and recommend it)
However, the MOST important anti-aging product is a high potency (SPF) sunscreen, using a broad brimmed hat and avoiding sun. Happy aging! ...Read more
A large amount: The upper limit of the dose of niacinamide is over 3 grams. Most patients don't need nearly that much or can't take that much due to side effects such as flushing or diarrhea. Niacin is a B vitamin and thus is water soluble. It is extremely hard to overdose on Niacinamide and damage your liver. ...Read more
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
Niacin is best: No-flush Niacin can either refer to a slow release preparation or inositol. Slow release preparations are better tolerated than immediate release products, but the lipid lowering effects are somewhat less potent than immediate or extended release niacin. For comparable efficacy a higher dose of slow release is usually needed. Inositol and niacinamide not improve lipids and should be avoided. ...Read more

Could you please tell if and how NIACIN (or NIACINAMIDE) deficiency play any role in synthesis of TETRAHYDROBIOPTERIN? Thank you.
Niacin deficiency would be expected to reduce synthesis as Niacin is needed to produce NADP and NADP is a co-factor in converting Dihydrobiopterin into Tetrahydrobiopterin, which is needed to synthesize serotonin, dopamine, melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine and nitric oxide and to metabolize phenylalanine.
Fortunately supplemental niacin and niacineamide are affordable and readily available. ...Read more

Are products with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, cholesterol and niacinamide generally helpful for oily, sensitive facial skin Dx seborrheic dermatitis?
No: These are very useful for DRY skin and eczema. Seborrheic dermatitis will respond to an azole cream such as ketoconazole, clotrimazole, or miconazole. Topical steroids are very effective but on the face calcineurin inhibitors are preferred. Washing with a dandruff shampoo, typically in a shower, can be very beneficial. Some meds and vitamins aggravate it. ...Read more

Any peel-off masks good 4 oily, coarse, ruddy, shiny, flaky skin w very visible pores&occasional mild acne? What about niacinamide? Tretinoin? What makeup??
Glycolic, tretinoin: Glycolic acid face masks can be helpful in situations like yours for the acne, blackhead exenteration and exfoliation, but only has short term results. Tretinoin, if your skin is not too sensitive for it, is an effective option for reversal and prevention of acne as well as the uv damage reversal and reducing wrinkle progression, but takes a few months. Niacinamide has mixed results. ...Read more
I have got skin irritation from acne treatments that had caused uneven skin tone on my face. Can I know if it will subside on its own? I have been using aloe vera and also a serum that contains niacinamide, vitC, retinol, hyaluronic and salicylic acid.
No: As a general rule of thumb, NO antibiotics can be topically put on face and then exposed to the sun. All antibiotics whether topical or oral are somewhat sun sensitive. ...Read more
All of those treatments work in different ways but I would avoid long term oral antibiotic. If you can. Topical is ok. Nicotinamide reduces inflammation, retinoids shrink oil glands and clindamycin kills bacteria that digest the oil from the glands. It is the breakdown products of the oil that cause all the problems.
A good smile is worth a lot of medicine. ...Read more
Can Cindamycin and nicotinamide gel be applied during day time and exposed to sun because my doc prescribed to use it during day?
Should be OK: Clindamycin gel (a topical antibiotic) and nicotinamide gel (a vitamin applied topically) should not cause a sun reaction. It is a good question to ask, because some medications can cause sun sensitivity including tar based over-the-counter skin/hair treatments, and retinoids for acne. ...Read more

I read a journal that states nicotinamide can decrease cellular proliferation of melanoma but it increases invasiveness. Does this make sense? Thx
No: This is cell-culture stuff. A huge amount of this kind of thing gets published, and it's almost never applicable to real human beings because of the vast complexity of cancer. People who are trying to sell you vitamins read these things over, publish them selectively, and then hope that you'll buy some of their products "just in case there's something to it." Don't reward this. Best wishes. ...Read more
