I wouldn't worry about it either. I take Lipitor (80mg) and Niaspan (500mg)slow release prescription niacin daily.... many doctors are prescribing this sort of combo because Niaspan/niacin helps lower bad cholesteral, while working to raise the good stuff.

That said, you shouldn't just randomly put yourself on mega-doses of niacin. First off, some people are allergic to mega-doses (more than the 20mg in a vitamin could KILL my husband as he is badly allergic). Secondly, niacin, as all other cholesteral lowering drugs (to my knowledge) can raise liver enzymes which is a bad thing.

Talk to your doctor if you are concerned.
