... It is common to see on Healthboards that Niacin must be Flush, and I'm not sure there is any evidence to support that. Over the counter niacin comes in two varities - nicotinaminde and nicatonic acid. Nicotinaminde has NO Cholesterol benefit, while Nicatonic Acid does. I believe that the most important factor to convey is to use Nicatonic Acid. I use Endur-acin, which can be... (10 replies)
... Hello folks, I am a new member to this board, but frequent on other health boards. I signed up mainly because I noticed that the community here for cholesterol issues looked loaded with knowledge. So here is my question to all you experts.. Me (35) and my mom (62), both of us have Ulcerative colitis, to those who don't know what it is, our lower colons are inflamed to an... (9 replies)
... It should be worth noting that there is no clinical differentiation between the terms "extended", "controlled", or "sustained". Actual dissolution testing of Niaspan, Endur-acin, and Slo-Niacin show they are quite similar, about 5 - 6 hr dissolution times, with niaspan actually being the slowest in this study! The risk of hepatotoxicity has very little to do with the... (3 replies)

... I actually did increase my dose to 1000mg five months ago. I just had blood work done and guess what? My fasting glucose is mildly high (107), uric acid is slightly high, and liver enzymes AST is high (178), ALT is high (83). No doubt all of these elevations are due to ER niacin. None of the above blood parameters were ever high in previous tests. So, I'm totally off... (11 replies)
... Regarding the dose of Endur-acin, 750mg is a VERY modest dose of an extended release niacin. As niacin will cause a shift from small particles to larger particles, I would highly recommend increasing this to 1000mg, then 1250mg. Then retest after 8 - 12 weeks. Most patients taking once daily ER niacin are taking 1500mg - 2000mg. (11 replies)

... O.K., I just called my prescription provider from work and they told me I can receive a 90 day supply of Niacor for $19.65. That is one (1) 500 mg. tab per day or 22 cents per tab. Does this sound like a good price? Niacor is nicotinic acid and so is Endur-Acin but the latter looks like it is "sustained release" which is the same thing as Niaspan. From what I have read...

Niaspan question
Jun 25, 2010
... Look at a product called Endur-acin or Enduracin on the web. I just started using it with no flushing. The price is very reasonable also. (13 replies)
... like Ace, I am a big fan of niacin. However, one should keep in mind that statins are the best at lowering LDL. (statins have a bad rap, and a lot of the myalgias can be avoided if vitamin D levels are checked prior to therapy) Occacionally, rash with niacin is severe and can limit therapy. It seems to affect people who normally have "sensitive" skin, are fair skinned, or... (4 replies)
... There are two non-prescription brands of extended-release niacin which also have controlled clinical studies published, verifying there dissolution, kinetics, safety, and efficacy. Slo-Niacin, which uses the same methyl cellulose base of Niaspan, and Endur-acin, a wax-matrix preparation with very good tolerability. Each has a 6 hr dissolution similar to Niaspan. Regardless...

... Have you tried the time-release niacin? I use Endur-acin and have no reactions at all. You can order on line...just search on-line for Endur-acin. (8 replies)
... Smyrna, we have a heck of alot in common. I am also 31. I am 6'0" and weigh about 170. My LDL(142) and Total Cholesterol(206) was elevated too, with all other readings in the normal range. Like you, I want to get a hold of my cholesterol before it affects my heart. I think the exercise is going to make a big difference for you. I walk 2 miles per day at 4.2 mph on... (8 replies)
... Welcome to the site, and CONGRATS. on the new baby. Your numbers aren't too bad, and like U said, U kinda slipped off your routine due to the baby. I'm sure when U get back to the exercising and the normal diet those Trigs. will fall again. Just keep away from those fast food joints, prepacked foods, sugary stuff, white bread, rice and walk off those calories. U can also try... (3 replies)
... Wow, I typed 'high cholesterol' into Google and I am so glad that I came upon this messageboard. (Isn't Google the best thing ever?) Anyway, I thought I would post my results. A little background...I am a 31 year-old male. I had my cholesterol tested in 9/04 and it came back TOT-237/LDL-169/HDL-53/Tri-70. This was after years and years of being lazy, eating lots of...

... Larry, If you are having poblems with Niacin, you may find that a product called**Endur-acin could give you the meds you need, without the nasty sides. My wife is allergic to a list of meds 34 miles long as well as *niacin. But the above product is taken with no sides at all. Daily intake is currently 1500mg and no sides. Good luck. Jim (19 replies)
... I'm not really sure how the niacin works, but believe it probably works by lowering the liver's production of cholesterol. I do know it can present problems with liver toxicity. One should have your liver enzymes checked before starting on therapy, just as one should with a statin. Then they should be checked again after 6-8 weeks or whatever the doctor recommends, and...

Low Dose Niacin
Feb 7, 2005
... Lenin, I know that you have side effect problems with immediate release products but are concerned about liver enzymes with the sustained release. According to the Endurance Products website, the one I take, Endur-acin, had a drop-out rate of less than 4% in clinical trials at the University of Minnesota and Harvard University due to intolerance. And that was with 1500 mg.,... (19 replies)
... Niacin (nicotinic acid) is used in cholesterol control, but not niacinamide. Before you start taking niacin, though, you really should read up some on it's use in cholesterol control. A therapeutic dose is usually considered 1000-2000 mg., but I would never consider a dose like that without having a liver enzyme test first (simple blood tests) and checking with a doctor...

OTC Drugs

... Keep in mind that plant sterols and stanols only block dietary cholesterol, not the cholesterol your body makes out of saturated fats. I take a similar product, EP® Phytosterols, but I usually do so only before I eat eggs or shrimp, my two big weaknesses as far as dietary cholesterol. And with the phytosterols, I feel I can have those foods in far greater quantity than I... (2 replies)
... Your numbers are high, but not so high that many people couldn't get them down with just lifestyle changes. It is hard to say if any one individual can do so, though, and it certainly depends upon your starting point. Are you close to your ideal weight? Do you get regular exercise? And what about that all-important diet? If you are already eating a low-saturated fat,... (1 replies)
