    I have severe anxiety and I just discovered that Niacin in a fairly high dose can help. The problem is I take NORVASC 5MG a day for blood pressure and Ranauds syndrome and I found out these two, Niacin and Norvasc have a bad interaction. I was hoping on using Niacin for my anxiety because I don't want to take SSRI's. Has anybody out there tried this and done ok with it?

    I took Niacin 500 mg today for acne. I'm supposed to take it twice per day. After only one pill I started painful cramps and heavy bleeding within hours.

    I'm afraid to take more. I'm already taking birth control due to extreme long and heavy periods, and after two months of bleeding it was finally almost gone this past week. I'm anemic due to this and really worried.

    Has anyone experienced pain in legs, like a bad sunburn from taking Niacin and Crestor. I also have this sunburn type feeling on the left side of my back and sometimes the right. It comes and goes, but I think this may be a reaction to taking both. Anybody have a similar experience?

    I took Niacin 500 mg primary for rosacea but also take Valsartan for high blood pressure. I believe I have to quit taking the niacin because it has raised my high blood pressure.
