sounds like a decent b-100 complex. good call. when i really needed to boost my bs, i was basically taking 4 a day for 3 days. with extra b1 in the mix. and boatloads of straight niacin. is yours straight niacin not niacinamide? looks that way. i always thought the niacin flush was good for circulating nutrients around, and now that the vascular component of ms is gaining ground, i think it even more! is 2 b-100 per day giving you the flush reaction?
niacinamide is modified to get rid of the flush reaction. only straight niacin will really send your blood zooming. also, ironically, the flush gives you a temporary sunburnt prickling feeling. mostly in the face, and doesn't last too long. as for how long the redness of the face lasts, i think it depends on the person and what else you've got in your system.
It's the tingeling feet and hands. And I get the occasional headache which is the stabbing pain in the back of my eyes ( optic neuritis)
Every day can be different some great and others not so good. I've noticed that my headaches are created by not drinking enough fluids.
