Is folate related to niacin?

Folate. I have been unable to find it in the store. Is folate-related to niacin? That is my concern as niacin caused me to have a severe skin breakout. The doctor seemed unsure of my question and I didn’t want to press him.

Thank you for your response. Your page is great. Thank you,

Folate is folic acid or folacin which is a vitamin. You can buy it without a prescription. He probably prescribed it to lower your blood levels of homocysteine. It is a different vitamin than niacin which is Vitamin B3.
