... http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=130089] I had a double by-pass a couple of years ago. When I went back to my Dr for my follow up visit two months after surgery my cholesterol had dropped from 268 to 138. My triglycerides had come down from 490 to 120. HDL and LDL were also at very healthy levels. My Dr. couldn't believe it. All I had done was add a 1/2... (0 replies)

... t six weeks while the doc and I try to sort out some intestinal problems I've been having, but as soon as I get this problem solved, I expect I'll go back on the Enduracin again. I was taking 750 mg daily in a divided dose with meals. ... (3 replies)

... Which type of niacin? Years ago I tried an immediate release. I don't recall if it was 250 mg or just 100 mg, but I thought I was going to burn up. It isn't dangerous, but it was uncomfortable. Then a couple of years ago when I decided to use it to lower my cholesterol, I used 250 mg Enduracin, a sustained-release OTC product, and took it, as directed, with a meal. I had... (8 replies)
... mg a day. I once took several OTC niacin products with very poor blood test results. Some products gave me no flush at all. The prescription NIACOR gave me better and more consistent results. ... (29 replies)
... who just don't go in for liver enzyme checks when they should. People who are heavy drinkers or who have other liver problems, for example, should not be taking niacin of any kind. ... (29 replies)

... Maybe they figure it won't bother U at nite??? I have NO idea, as my hubby never took it. He said he had his fill of statins and side effects and was in no mood for anything else to aggravate him. I tried the stinking 100 mgs. and look what happened to me. I was really annoyed, as I figured that amount shouldn't have any affect. Oh well, guess I have a really weird... (29 replies)

... Are you sure about that? Isn't Niaspan a coated pill? I know my Enduracin has a wax matrix coating, and I had the impression that cutting it in half would be like trying to split a capsule - you'd end up making an immediate release out of it. (29 replies)
... My philosophy about taking niacin was to take no more than necessary to do the job, so I started out with 250 mg a day for three months. ... (34 replies)
... That was 1000 mg? Not 100 mg? Just wanting to make sure that wasn't a typo. If there wasn't a flush, you probably won't get a flush, nor will you have any idea whether or not it is doing anything for your cholesterol until your next blood test. Keep in mind that most "authorities" here say that the non-flush is useless for cholesterol control. There was at least one... (27 replies)
... Hi JJ, I'm one of those on the board taking Niacin, too. I take Enduracin, a sustained release form, which can be ordered online. I tried an immediate release niacin once years ago, and just hated the flushing, so chose to go with one which might have a slightly higher risk but which I could tolerate. ... (15 replies)

Low Dose Niacin

... jtu, what did you find about the interaction of Niaspan and aspirin that caused you to stop taking it? When I looked up the interactions, it just said that "aspirin may cause blood levels of niacin (also referred to as "nicotinic acid") to be increased. This interaction is poorly documented and is considered minor in severity." So as I see it, we are just getting more bang... (19 replies)

I have been taking Enduricin for almost a year and when I started my cholesterol was about 270 in less than three months while taking the sustained release niacin, one 250 in the morning one 250 at night, making the muffins Kowalski suggests and watching what I eat, my cholesterol went down to 234 - but (bad) news, it is has been going up again, now up to 280 I just had a...
