I was inspired by a previous message by digitalman (11 days ago) and decided to try B3 vitamin and took a 500mg pill with a meal a few hours ago. About an hour later I suddenly started to feel very hot and my whole body turned red and my skin started to feel itchy.My 1st thought was that this cannot be caused by B-vitamin but then realized it can't be anything else.
I took a closer look at the bottle and it states:
"This amount of Niacin may cause skin flushes in sensitive individuals. Do not take on an empty stomach."
Anyone else experienced this? I'm now a little hesitant to take it again. Even though i'm now okay (my skin is still quite red) i was feeling pretty uncomfortable just an hour ago. I would appreciate any advices.
I have taken all kinds of supplements in the past and none have caused any reactions until now. I'm a little surprised that B3 can cause this.
