    Niacin

    Anyone ever take it (for whatever reason) and get that flushy (yes, that is a word) burning feeling in your eyes - which are so red it looks like they're bleeding?

    Yes it sucks, that is exactly why I dont take it. May I suggest getting the time released niacin, it will not make you feel so hot, tingily and like your eyes are going to pop out of your head.

    derek is right...the timed released is much better....i take 500mg of niaspan sa everyday.....
    something that helps is to take an aspirin 1 hour before you take niacin and take the niacin 30 minutes after you eat your largest meal....

    I still think your gonna get some of the same effects just not all at once. Take one dose time released and then the next time you take it take the pure crap and see if there is a difference, could just be the brand that you have is not released slow enough. I dont know
