Has anyone tried NICOMIDE
Does it work?Is it only for females?Side effects
I haven’t taken Nicomide myself or know anyone who has, but I found a website that has information about it:
The ingredients in Nicomide are: Nicotinamide, Zinc Oxide, Cupric Oxide, Folic Acid.
One of the ingredients in Nicomide, “nicotinamide”, is another name for “niacinamide” which is a form of niacin (Vitamin B-3). I did use a topical spray containing niacinamide called “Naturally Clear” for years and it did help a lot (http://www.naturallyclear.com). I also took the Naturally Clear vitamin supplement, which also contain folic acid, zinc and niacinamide along with a whole range of other vitamins, minerals and amino acids. The Naturally Clear system did help me, although I’m not using it currently. Is the Nicomide pill prescription or OTC? The only thing that would concern me is whether the pill might be too concentrated. It seems more balanced to take a pill with a whole range of vitamins and minerals, I don’t know. They did list some side effects to Nicomide. I didn’t have any side effects from the Naturally Clear pills or spray (well, possibly a little redness, but not a significant amount).
I took Nicomide for a couple of years. It helped me tremendously. It’s a heavy duty B vitamin with zinc. There is concern that it can cause liver damage if taken too long or if your liver is compromised. I believe it is to correct an imbalance that increases inflammation.
Make sure that you take it with food. I had terrible stomach pains when I didn’t take it with food. Also, ask your derm how long he/she expects you to stay on it. Good luck.
