Raynaud's Disease is a common condition causing the small arteries to contract- mostly in the hands or feet, causing them to turn blue. Afterwards often flushing and red. No known treatment. Someone recommended Niacin. I am sceptical.
Yes, at one point and time my doctor had me take niacin 1 per day added to my other persciption medication. I also found on the internet reading that you can do this too. I would ask your doctor because you may be taking a medication that may interfer with this or you could ask the pharamist. I know some people takes more than 1 if your not taking a perscription for this cause, but i think if you take too many all the time you would have to have your liver checked.
