People who abuse alcohol may develop niacin deficiencies. Alcoholism is the leading cause of niacin deficiency in the United States, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Small amounts of niacin supplements may reverse deficiencies. But if you take niacin in large doses to treat conditions such as high cholesterol or arthritis, you face the risk of liver damage. And alcohol itself can cause liver damage. If you drink large quantities of alcohol, do not take niacin without a doctor's consent and supervision.
If alcohol use makes it difficult for your body to process niacin, you may experience side effects such as fatigue, canker sores, indigestion and depression. If niacin deficiency turns severe -- a condition called pellagra -- your skin may turn scaly or crack and your may suffer from diarrhea or dementia. Other symptoms of niacin deficiency include a swollen, red tongue and burning in your mouth. Most people get enough niacin -- about 14 mg to 16 mg a day -- in their diets, from sources such as nuts, beef, chicken, beets and yeast
