A common, yet usually harmless side effect of Niacin supplementation includes a temporary “flushing” sensation in the skin. This includes itching under the skin, warmth, redness, or tingly skin. Avoid alcohol as it can make the flushing sensation worse. This side effect should subside within a couple of hours.
Other side effects include:
- Mild dizziness
- Sweating or chills
- Leg cramps
- Muscle pain
- Pain of the mouth
- Intestinal gas
