Touted as a dietary supplement, NicAzel Forte is the second generation of a prescription only supplement, made by Elorac Pharmaceuticals.
The first generation, the more simply named “NicAzel” contained Nicotinamide, but not the now fancily named blend – Azerizin.
NicAzel Forte is promoted as a “prescription dietary supplement for management of inflammatory skin conditions.” and further a “supplement specifically formulated to help manage skin inflammation caused by conditions such as acne and rosacea.”
In 2011, Rosacea News highlighted Elorac patenting Oral Niacinamide + oral azelaic acid.
Perhaps because NicAzel Forte is expensive and only available on prescription, it has not received a lot of attention or reviews from rosacea sufferers.

NicAzel Product Information
See here for NicAzel Product Information:
One potential user suggests an alarmingly expensive listing price for the first generation NicAzel. One hopes that NicAzel Forte is not similarly priced, but we should probably expect it to be so.
The doc originally prescribed Nicomide – a prescription supplement with niacinamide, zinc, copper, folic acid. My insurance wouldn’t cover it and it was $375 with a coupon.
I notice that NicAzel Forte is niacinamide (in the form of Azerizin – a blend of nicotinamide, azelaic acid, quercetin and curcumin). Plus zinc/copper, folic acid and pyridoxine.
NicAzel Forte User Reviews
There are only a few comments so far from NicAzel Forte users.
My dermatologist prescribed Nicazel Forte twice a day. It works better for me than Finacea. I have no redness on my face.
