    Can anyone tell me how much niacin one must take to shut down methylation? I am very sensitive to supps, so I don't want to take any more than absolutely necessary.

    Also, does anyone know if the niacinamide form will work?

    TIA!

    Thank you for your fast response! Unfortunately my legs are too weak for me to drive and walk anywhere so I kind of have to make do with the niacinamide that I already have in my house. I'm hoping someone else will have the answer. Thanks though!

    I don't have the answer. But I've used a different strategy. When I feel symptoms after increasing methylfolate, I pop a B12 into my gum. When this happened last night I noticed that the symptoms were relieved immediately. I've been doing this only, never used B3. I then stay at whatever total this additional B12 has brought me to. cheers, ahmo

    Wow! I'm so glad you've found something that works for you ahmo. Unfortunately, my problem is low potassium, probably brought on by injudicious eating (I didn't realize how high liver is in B12). So I need to slow/stop the potassium loss, and for me at least, b12 just speeds it up :(
