Does Niacin Work to Pass a Drug Test?

Does niacin work to pass a drug test?

This chemical compound can have you begging for mercy.

There’s been tons of chatter all over TV, the radio, and the Internet about using niacin to pass a drug test. I’m not sure where this story got it’s start, but it sure is a good urban myth.

The basic  idea is that people think niacin will rid their system of the toxins that drugs and other “stuff” leaves behind. According to this line of thinking, the properties of niacin will cleanse the human body… not so friends.

At best, niacin can help to mask certain toxins to some degree, and yes, it can mask THC–somewhat. However, it certainly ain’t foolproof and it is absolutely detectable by labs. Labs that have started to test for niacin and other masking agents and adulterants now that the trend has become so popular.

So, does niacin work to pass a drug test? Not really. And here are some awesome side effects you can expect if you take the doses of niacin “recommended” by people who claim to be gurus on the topic of passing a drug test with niacin:

  • Severe skin flushing combined with dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Itching
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Severe liver damage (hepatoxicity)
Now this list of symptoms and side effects of niacin overdosing–which is what you’re doing when you do a “niacin flush” is taken from the Mayo Clinic’s database–not too shabby a resource, and I think you  can take their word for it.
If you believe you have overdosed on niacin, you need to get some medical attention. Niacin toxicity is no joke, and liver damage is a pretty high price to pay to pass a drug test for a job or any other reason.
Don’t buy into the hype about niacin is my basic bottom line. I’ve been counseling people on how to effectively and safely pass a drug test for a long time. The products I support and believe in have been around for more than 12 years, so they’ve had plenty of time to work out kinks and believe me, they are all natural permanent detoxes meant for passing a drug test, not some random method a stoner put together and slapped on the Internet for you to buy into.
Whatever your reasons for needing to pass a drug test, none of them is worth harming yourself. So if you’re asking the question, “Does niacin work to pass a drug test?” the answer is a firm “NO.”
Good luck test takers, and let me hear from you!
