... 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)

... Personally I think the 500 mg enduracin will only give you a tiny LDL lowering, but everyone behaves differently. It probably won't hurt to give it a run for the money. At least the price is low! ... (19 replies)
... this is so confusing...didnt read Parsons but according to Kowalski's "8week cholestrol cure" book enduracin almost never causes flushing and rarely if EVER causes liver changes when taken in moderate amounts.. ... (19 replies)

... ood quality product. I believe it is made by Endurance Products, the same company that I buy a pharmaceutical grade pantethene supplement from. I understand that Enduracin has been used successfully in some clinical trials. Actually, it's also quite affordable. ... (19 replies)
... Somebody on another board says the flush from 1500 mg enduracin is "no worse than 500 mg. instant release." Well, that would have me in the ER! ... (19 replies)
... he also writes that you can take less enduracin then regular niacin to achieve the same results.... and the less meds you can take and get a result is aways better.. any info would be helpful.. ... (19 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)
Niaspan

... I assume by "Flush Niacin" you mean plain, immediate release nicotinic acid. This is the form of niacin used in the Coronary Drug Project demonstrating reduced cardiovascular outcomes. It is the least expensive, but is the most difficult to tolerate. (25 - 40% dropout in most studies.) Do not, however, confuse this with "No-Flush" niacin, which is made from inositol... (4 replies)

... boomerbill, Briefly, what did you learn? Are you okay with your present approach still? Re: Enduracin, I believe that is non-flush Niacin. If you want to increase your HDL I think you would do better with Flush Niacin, just be sure to ramp up slowly. Cheers! (11 replies)
... I have been following this forum for awhile and decided to post after receiving my VAP (Atherotech) results which concern me. I had already been taking 750mg niacin (Enduracin) and 2g fish oil for several months before the VAP. No red meat and cardio 5x / week. 62 years old. I do have some carotid plaque "of no significance" according to ultrasounds. Anyway, the Lp(a)... (11 replies)

... I am currently taking 4 250mg. tablets of Enduracin, Sustained Release Niacin with food and 1 450 mg.tablet of Immediate Release Phytosterols before each meal as directed to lower my LDL cholesterol and raise my HDL.

... or something like Enduracin. The OTC sustained release types might be as effective as Niaspan, but the data there is limited. I think Enduracin has some clinic studies behind it, at least. ... (3 replies)
... How high a dose of niacin were you taking? Did a blood test show liver enzymes to be elevated? I've been on Enduracin, a sustained-release niacin for about 2½ years, most of that time at 750 mg daily. It, together with some dietary changes, brought my TC down from 247 to 190, though my last test was 200. So far my liver enzymes show no elevation at all. I'm sure not... (21 replies)
Niaspan vs. Niacin
Jul 13, 2006
... My doctor, too, tried to push statins when my cholesterol was up, but I chose to use Enduracin, a sustained-release OTC niacin instead. I've had no problems with liver enzyme elevation whatsoever in the 38 months I've been on it. I've only been taking 750 mg, though. Before I started it my numbers were TC 247, LDL 158, HDL 62, trigs 133. With dietary change, fish oil and... (5 replies)
