Taking No-Flush Niacin to Pass Drug Tests
There is a myth that taking no-flush niacin will help a person pass a drug test by flushing the remnants of recently used drugs out of his or her system. Because no-flush niacin is a niacinamide, it will not flush toxins (i.e. drugs) out of the system.
People taking high doses of no-flush niacin are at risk for problems such as abdominal bloating, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, flatulence and a decrease in blood-pressure levels.
No-flush niacin is sometimes confused with niacin (also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid), which is rumored to help flush drugs out of the system for drug testing. There is no conclusive evidence that niacin will mask drug usage in drug testing, and taking high doses of niacin is dangerous.
Those attempting to pass a drug test with the use of no-flush niacin or niacin may be disappointed. They also could be caught due to the side effects that can be caused such as red skin, itching, sweating and skin that is hot to the touch or from the unusually high levels of niacin or other rumored drug-flushers/maskers in the test results.
