How To Use
  • Take B-3 Niacin as directed.
  • Follow any special dietary recommendations made by your doctor or nutritionist while taking B-3 Niacin.
  • Take B-3 Niacin with food to prevent stomach upset.
  • Timed-release capsules or tablets must be swallowed whole.
  • Do not crush or chew them or the long action may be destroyed and side effects increased.
  • If you are prescribed bile acid resin drugs (e.g., colestipol, cholestyramine) separate the dose from niacin by 6 hours or more.

Side Effects
  • B-3 Niacin may cause flushing and a feeling of warmth about the face and neck within the first two hours of taking a dose.
  • Itching, tingling, or headache may occur as well.
  • These effects should subside as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • Stomach upset, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may also occur.
  • Report promptly any of these effects if they persist or worsen.
  • Unlikely but report promptly: vision problems, dark urine, stomach (abdominal) pain, yellowing eyes or skin, irregular heartbeat, black stools, increased urination, muscle aches/pains.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to B-3 Niacin, seek immediate medical attention.
  • Symptoms include: rash, swelling, dizziness, fainting, trouble breathing.
  • To minimize the flushing effect (redness, itch) take a plain (not enteric-coated) 325 mg aspirin tablet (or other NSAIDs such as ibuprofen) 30 minutes before each niacin dose.
  • After a few weeks, this flushing effect should stop occurring, or decrease in intensity.
  • Also, avoid alcohol or hot beverages near the time of the niacin dose.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your entire medical history, including: diabetes, heart disease, kidney or liver disease, gallbladder disease, gout, ulcers, any allergies - including aspirin and tartrazine (a dye in some food and medication, including niacin).
  • To minimize dizziness or lightheadedness when rising from a seated or lying position, get up slowly.
  • Since alcohol can intensify drug side effects, ask your doctor or pharmacist about the use of alcohol.
  • If niacin is used for treating a lipid (high cholesterol or triglyceride) problem, then it should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • Doses for lipid problems are generally much higher than daily multivitamin doses (minimum daily allowance).
  • Niacin is excreted into breast milk.
  • If niacin is being used for lipid problems, breast-feeding is not recommended due to possible infant side effects.
  • Consult your doctor before you breast-feed.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, take it as soon as remembered but not if it is almost time for the next dose.
  • If close to time of next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double-up the dose to catch up.
  • If you stop taking this for one week or more, consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking it again.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of any over-the-counter or prescription drugs you are taking especially: high blood pressure medication, diabetes medicine, fibrates (e.g., gemfibrozil, fenofibrate), statins (e.g., lovastatin, atorvastatin).
  • If you take insulin or oral diabetes medication, your dose may need to be altered due to increased blood sugar levels caused by niacin.
  • Ask your doctor.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
