babydog,

Niaspan, being a time-release, or extended release or long acting(whatever silly term they use to make it sound SPECIAL and justify charging $1.50 a pill, $3 a day for something costing pennies in a Heath Foods Store) is kinder than any immediate release niacin, but a slow start is STILL a good idea. A runaway extended flush is something truly unbearable, among life's worst agonies. At least short term (week or two) maybe cracking the pills in half is a good idea.

Lennin,

So after all is said and done, this actually is just a megadose of the B vitamin niacin?? If I were to pick up time release niacin from health food store in say 250mg capsules, it would work just the same? I thought I was saving some money by getting it thru my insurance.
Thanks :wave:
