How can I take vitamin B3?

Vitamin B3 (niacin) supplements are available as a tablet and extended-release tablet, both of which are taken by mouth. Take a tablet each day according to your doctor's instructions with food and at least eight ounces of cool water. Do not take vitamin B3 with hot liquids because you may experience skin irritation and flushing. If you use the extended-release tablet, take it before you go to bed, with a snack and at least eight ounces of cool water. Be sure to swallow it without chewing, and do not break it beforehand.
