Steve, that's interesting. I didn't like the flushing and itching with the regular niacin and then discovered non-flush and I have no problems with that. Same old story, everyone reacts to pills differently.
thats one fact that a lot of folks don't realize. Dexidrine is one med i am supposed to take but it doesn't stimulate me it tranquilizes me or settles me. It allows me to focus.
Niacin in any form flush's me. The anti flush formula is mixed with asperine to supposedly stop the flushing. doesn't work on me.
I can take loritab like candy but it doesn't put me to sleep. It somewhat controls pain. oxycontin or percocets don't knock me out either, they just kill pain and if i take 2 or 3 7.5's or 2 10's they will knock me down.
Quite frankly i get more pain relief from a tincture made out of cannabis. IT has far more pain relieving effect than the oxy's.
