I took 500 mg of niacin and about an hour

I took 500 mg of niacin and about an hour later felt like something rough or sharp was jabbing me under my left arm. could not find anything physical doing it. a later felt somewhat sick at my stomach, my head hurt, and my throat felt tight. I took a rest and felt somewhat better but my stomach hurt with feelings of needing to go to the bathroom. lots of urine but not much in the way of bowels.

I am on levothyroxine 88mcg in the morning I wanted to know I am 53 years old and exercise but those peky rolls on my side and tummy and the thighs don t seem to be getting smaller. However, I wanted to know if I drink Niacin Bound Chromium is it the same as taking Niacin. these are 200 mcg pills will they make me feel the Niacin flush which I hate that s why I would not take it. Will I feel nervouse as when I took a b6 pill?

I took one 500 mg of Vitamin B3 Niacin today; recommended by a friend, around 1:00 pm. I take 300 mg of Effexor ER every morning. At night, I take 1 mg of Klonopin. My friend told me of the side effects and he was correct. However, now I m second guessing what damage it might cause to my existing medication. I have been on these drugs since 2009 (gradually increasing to my current strength). I have been on 300 mg of Effexor ER for at least 2-3 years. Should I be concerned at any reaction I might have later on in the evening.

I just took some niacin and am experiencing the niacin flush, which concerned me, however, I did learn that this can be normal. My question is how helpful is taking niacin with dealing with depression.??I did not realize that there is a charge for my query, so cannot proceed....sorry........
