Haha, if it's "timed release" it will take however long it says. It SHOULD say it on there. I think some go for 8 hours..

it says "a gradual release over an extended period of time"


I'm having doubts whether this will work.

Should I stick to this or should I get the insta release kind?

My friend does niacin flushes before she get's pee tested for drugs.

Do you think it's possible that the regular widening and shrinking of the capillaries could ever do damage to them?"broken capillaries"?

About 40 minutes. It lasted longer than I thought, but before I knew it it just kind of fades away very quickly.

Wait is the 500mg your first dose? If it is, then boy will you be in for a flush. The bottle I have is in 100mg dosages.

So considering the guy in the adult acne post said he took the " no-flsuh" kind, but people here seem to be taking the "flush" kind, what's the better one?

Best of luck to all.

Yeah so yesterday i took my first pill. 500 mg flush kind. It took about an hour for effects to come through. But it wasnt bad at all. My feet itched and my hears felt hella hot and heavy, but thats about it. NO redness at all.

So yeah, I will continue taking it and will be posting up results.

Hmm, I'm starting to think that Niacin works for people whose acne is caused by problems in metabolism, while Zinc works for people whose acne is caused by hormonal problems.

Indeed my bottle of niacin describes itself as "metabolism support".

"...released from inositol hexanicotinate by the body's own enzymes. Niacin nutritionally supports cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range."
