Niacin actually takes out methyl, so you can get low on methyl which can mess up methylation if you consume too much niacin without consuming methyl chemistry.
Does the type of niacin make a difference? For example, niacinamide vs inositol?
I've been taking about 2,000 mgs of niacinamide for a couple months now, since learning that it fights MRSA. I also drink a lot of whole milk -- about 1/2 gallon per day all by my lonesome -- as well as yogurt and cheeses.

That's not even close to accurate unless you're a fetus. The mean lethal dose is somewhere in the neighborhood of 20mg/kg.
I think you might have meant nicotinic acid or N-acyelcysteine instead of inositol. Inositol is part of a lecitin I think.
Nicotinic acid is the plant version, Niacinamide is the animal version
