My soon took pre-workout drink 2 hours ago, which he dose

Customer Question

My soon took pre-workout drink 2 hours ago, which he dose almost daily. However he took a new brand today and experienced extreme hot for 15 minutes then he started sweating profusely and his vision is off. I was wondering if he got to much niacin (30mg per scoop in this pre-workout drink) and he took a scope and a half. Should we take him to the ER? He's breathing is fine he just sweating bad and has blurry vision.

alot of those preworkouts have a lot of caffeine in them to help with artificial energy.

most likely it will pass with time. most likely not the niacin causing his symptoms.
