I have bought niacinamide 1000 mg and I am preparing to try it. But I read on the bottle that this is 5000% higher dose that I should be normally getting... Can I have some other side effects from such a dosage, does anybody know? Or is it relatively (I know everybody can have some adverse reaction to anything) safe to take such a dosage?

its water soluble so in theory you should just pass all the excess via urine. like vitamin C, I try to instead of taking 1000mg daily I would take 200mg throughout the day or find a time released formula (although more $$$)

I think 3g is thought to be the toxic dosage so you should avoid that.

Yes I read 3g is toxic. I have 1000mg (1g) time released formula one (it was expensive!). So I guess it is safe to take it, I took 500mg, I don't dare to take whole 1g before I test this.

I will of course let you know.

Scandinavian girl: If I would show some improvement, would I experiment with this B3? :;-)))))

has anyone also tried supplementing L-tryptophan in conjuction with B3? obviously I wouldn't do either if you are taking a SSRI

BFSBurger... the brand I bought (and the company I bought it from) can be found here: http://well.ca/products/swiss-natural-s ... 50347.html

Still experiencing decreased twitching and decreased anxiety! Again - not 100% cure but certainly I've seen a marked reduction without any signs of fading.

I am taking this for 4 days and since yesterday I have tremendous increase in twitching, beyond my "usual" flare ups. My left thigh has 3 hotspots at the same time, this never happened to me before, to have one stop above the knee, one at the back and one at the front of the thigh ;-&

I have to read my prophecy I wrote 100 times this days to get it out of my head. I couldn't sleep, my leg is like twitching in a dead frog, I have twitches at other places also of course...

I am not saying it is from this niacianimide, but I will stop it for a while now... If it is not it has helped nothing but I understand 4 days is not enough time anyway.

Jerry - BFS is a strange creature! One week all my supplements REALLY helped me, and after two weeks taking them, I seemed to get a little worse. Then I stopped cold turkey and guess what? So did my BFS .... COMPLETELY!

So explain that one! Sometimes you start something and it helps. Then 2 weeks later you need to stop taking it for it to help. :)

I think how you are doing on a monthly basis - on the aggregate is what matters.

Original Poster: I am seeing amazing success right now with my regimen. So I am going to hold off on the Nian .... but ill keep it in my *beep* (wow i wrote a r s e n a l and it beeped it. No im not keeping it in my A R S E) if this stops working. All this researching and reading and learning has gotten me to a fine-tuned daily regimen of food and nutrient intake. I have finally gotten to the point where I am controlling my BFS - it is not doing whatever it wants. I can initiate a response, and STOP the symptoms by doing very specific things now. And that was my goal. BFS *beep* me off because it seemed to do whatever it wanted, irregardless of what I did. But that is no longer true. I just needed to learn, and do some very structured trial and error. Now I can stop my symptoms almost to 99% .... or kickstart them again.

So you don't have BFS anymore BFSBurger? Great for you, you should rename to Burger only then :-)))

If the symptoms are so wierd with taking something, it means it is not doing anything and the problem just goes it's way ;-/

(BFS)Burger og FormerBFSBurger maybe!: Wow! How come?? What is it specifically that you can do to stop it (and kickstart it again, - not so interessted it this of course..)?? Do you mean you controll your symptoms throught a spesific diet/supplements - plan? Do you think this only works for you, or is highly individual?
Contrats anyway, must feel fantastic! For how long?
