Nicotinamide for Squamous Cell Carcinoma or Basal Cell Carcinoma

If you have had Squamous Cell Carcinoma or Basal Cell Carcinoma, please consider taking Nicotinamide 500 mg twice daily. This is a B vitamin that has been shown to decrease the incidence of additional non-melanoma skin cancers when taken regularly. It is commonly confused with Niacin. Do NOT take Niacin as this can cause severe flushing and diarrhea.

Heliocare Advanced contains both 240 mg of Fernblock PLE and 500 mg of Nicotinamide. We carry both Heliocare and Heliocare Advanced in our office. Both can also be purchased through any licensed pharmacist and are frequently available off the shelf at Walgreens.
