Next time you see your doctor, take 1000 mg. plain old niacin on an empty stomach about 30 minutes before you get to his waiting room.
Let HIM see what misery such a dose can cause. Make sure you mention any differences in your breathing, swollen lips, eyelids etc. :D

But don't look for niacin to cure a high Lp(a) won't. Only booze works a bit.


I'm not sure exactly what you are asking.
But I think basically that anyone who CAN take a gram or two of REAL niacin should. It works best and has the least effect on the liver. Others have to content themselves with slow release although it is harder on the liver. In truth though, LOTS of people are on niacin and we don't hear much about liver damage...I think it was overhyped.
I dont know if the inosital-niacin molecule is fully metabolized...maybe yes, maybe no.

I can NOT use any amount of flushy niacin so I buy non-flush for price.
