Am I the ONLY one not cleared by Niacin???

Please tell me I'm not. I started taking Niacin 300 mg two months ago. I still have the same amount of acne. Mine is pretty mild, but still, nothing has changed. Anybody with similar experiences?

Are you taking flush or no flush? You should try to up the dosage to 500mg.

Nope same here, been taking 500mg no flush niacin for about 4 months now and no change in mine, along with 50mg zinc.

Nope! Non-flush niacin did nothing for me over the course of a month, except for possibly making me sick. :doubt:

It's not surprising it doesn't work for everybody, if anybody. Not even accutane works for everyone. For me it seems to have balanced my skin out very well and I've been able to reduce BP usage by a significant amount.

But everyone is different, and what works for some might not work for others.

I find niacin is good for overall skin quality, but not much for acne reduction.

BComplex/B5 and Fish oil has had a much more significant impact for me concerning actual acne.
