      For further information see Niacin Therapy in Psychiatry. [8] In September , Mr. C., 76 years-old, requested help with his memory. He was terribly absentminded. If he decided to do something, by the time he arrived where he wanted to do it he had forgotten what it was he wanted to do. His short-term memory was very poor and his long-term. The odds she was schizophrenic were over 90%. I started her on niacin mg tid, ascorbic acid 1 g tid, pyridoxine mg od and zinc citrate 50 mg od. Orthomolecular therapy includes the combined use of diet, nutrients in optimum amounts, and drugs as needed. Three months later she was free of voices.

Dr. Hoffer has been trying to make psychiatry a science for a long time, but the influence of money has been a much tougher opponent than ignorance and by: The AIM-HIGH trial was halted early after a planned interim analysis suggested futility. Those assigned to the niacin group achieved significant improvement in multiple lipid parameters, including decrease in LDL-C ( % compared to % in the placebo group), decrease in median triglycerides ( % compared to % in the placebo group), and increase in HDL-C Cited by: 8.

    Bill Wilson's Fight With Depression The pamphlet that Bill had published on niacin therapy was a collection of articles by several doctors who had done research in the area.

(Only Niacinamide). Niacin therapy increases liver function tests. But this elevation means that the liver is active. It does not indicate an underlying liver pathology. Dr. Bill Parsons discussed this extremely well in his book on niacin and cholesterol (Cholesterol Control Without Diet, Lilac Press, ).
