Were you looking for information about Niacin? Niacina is a common misspelling of niacin.
Niacin is most often used for treating high cholesterol, although it may provide other health benefits as well. The B3 vitamin comes in many strengths and forms, and is available as over-the-counter dietary supplements and prescription medications. These products, however, are not interchangeable. You should talk to your healthcare provider prior to taking any niacin products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have low blood pressure, or have gout.
