Dear Dr, Price

Thank you very much for answering all of my previous questions
I had something very interesting that I wanted to share with you
It was for a long time that I was taking niacin but it wasn't giving me sufficient results I still remained on medication and was not completely symptom free, Recently I was successful at activating it with some liver herbs found in Ayurveda system of medicine ie. bhingaraj and guduchi
I am very happy that the niacin started working much better for me I feel that the amount that I currently take 1000 mg of niacin and 1000 of niacinimide make me feel much better then before but they stop working at around 5:00 P.M and I was considering to add another 1000 mg of some form of niacin that can make the effect last the whole day for me. I know that taking more than 1000 mg of regular niacin make me nauseous and taking more than 1000 mg niacinimide a day will likely cause elevation of liver enzymes( based on past experience)
I currently take 1000 mg of niacin and 1000 mg of niacinimide daily

Which one do you think I should add?

In supplement list that I currently take are also included vitamin c folic acid and b12

Thank you again for your time
I look forward to hear from you

As you mentioned, not exceeding a dose which would raise your liver enzymes or cause nausea.
