I used to take niacin for a different reason. If the flushes become troublesome (they can make some people feel like they have bad burns all over their body), try slow-release niacin.
Also, ask your regular doc to monitor your liver function, as niacin can affect that. I had to stop taking it because it started shutting my liver down.
Hope it works for you all!

Thanks for the reply. I can take Niacin at 5am and still be jittery and unable to sleep for the next 3 days. I used to be able to take Niacin when I was a kid, but this jittery stuff started happening after I had a bout with RSD/CRPS, so I'm wondering if the RSD scrambled something with my nerves...because I also can't do acupuncture or my RSD symptoms start returning (even though I've been in remission from the RSD for 7 years).
Thanks & take care,
