    Men, Do you get Hot Flashes?

    My doctor put me on a regimine of Niacin and whenever I forget to take it for a day and then the next time it do take it I get these hot flashes that last for about 1/2 an hour.

    I sure can understand (to a certain degree) how the "weaker sex" feel when this happens. The first few times this happened I kind of thought it was cool but it is getting old. I suppose I just need to get my cholesterol down and quit whining.

    So any other men here in the same boat?

    How much niacin did you take? Are you sure you are
    taking the right dose? Niacin can do that--once I had
    to take it to come down off shrooms. Dude--make sure you don't take
    too much--

    The shroom thing--we were tripping way to hard so my cousin and I
    walked across town (Oceanside) to the drugstore and somehow managed to buy
    a huge bottle of niacin. On the way home a church bus full of cholos
    pulled up and these dudes piled out threatening to kill us--he had ripped
    them off. So we ran like hell and I got back to the house on my own and
    took like half the bottle--needless to say with all the vomiting I came down
    right quick. Later (years later) I asked him "did that really happen--
    we got chased by angry cholos right?" and he said "yeah--it was a bad
    trip and that really happened." Moral of the story be careful with niacin--and don't do
    drugs kids!!! Also don't rip off hair-net wearin' cholos they will cut you!

    But yeah--it gave me hot flash type symptoms--at the time that was the least of my
    concerns.

    I have prescription doses and some over the counter stuff and I only take the reccomended amount, sure does lower the heating bill though.

    Last night my nose got all stuffed up and I could only breath out of my mouth, I'm going to talk to my DR. about that.

    kaiju-velo I have never taken drugs except legally but I hear you and can imagine (a little) some of what you were going through.
