Re: Is niacin good or bad for thyroid?
After I started taking Niaspan to raise HDL, I noticed something about me changed. I felt like I no longer could get any anxiety, which was kind of weird, since I am not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Anyways, after getting my blood work, the doctor noticed that my thyroid was not kicking out like it should and gave me some med to take to increase it. After having this expereince, it made me see the power of the thyroid on the human mind (at least in my case)...Like when my thyroid was lower, I didn't notice any major energy differences, but was never really got excited about doing anything...Then when I stop taking niacin for a while, my thyroid levels go up and the excitement comes back along with some anxiety.
