    The do have controlled release niacin tablets which are often called Slo-Niacin. It helps with the flushing.

    This is not medical advice.

    If it's a TV doctor it must be true.

    I thought it was an interesting theory. I don't know if it's true. I gave up vitamins for other reasons, and am sticking now with a morning glass of Tropicana oj. I haven't gotten a cold or the flu this winter.

    With todays processed foods it's tough to get everything you need and the RDA is the bare minimum.

    I'm glad you have stayed healthy all winter!

    I got prescribed niacin for my crazy high cholesterol and I had the same experience, NJ. I felt like I had a really bad sunburn and actually passed out for a second or two, ending up on the floor of our bedroom at 2:00 am. Suffice to say that I swore off of niacin after that.
