... se to ban a quality red yeast rice product that contains effective ingredients. After all, even though Niaspan is only available by prescription, they still sell niacin over the counter. That isn't illegal. If a quality red yeast rice product no longer exists, I'll bet that the drug companies had something to do with it. ... (26 replies)

... My lipid problems are/were similar to yours in some ways. I never had really bad LDL, but always had low HDL and high TG. Once I lost the weight and continued my exercise (daily 3 mile run) my TG dropped from >400 mg/dL to the 30-40 mg/dL range. My HDL went from 25 to 70 mg/dL, while my LDL stayed in the 80 mg/dL range. Granted, everyone is different...but you may want... (21 replies)

... patric, All I can offer is an opinion. My opinion is that both are hard on the liver because both act to interfere with the liver's functioning. Which is worse is probably personal, certainly dose dependent, Remember that the statins (prescription drug) have to meet a higher standard of safety and efficacy than a supplement like niacin....and also dosage control. There... (19 replies)

... The best medication to increase HDL is Niaspan. It is a prescription form of Niacin. I have been on it since 1997. It also lowers LDL and Triglycerides. ... (21 replies)
... Assuming that what you're saying is true, that Niaspan really is safer compared to other over the counter niacin products, then making it available only via prescription seems to fly in the face of logic. It should be selling over the counter, along with the rest of the supplements, and at a far lower price. ... (33 replies)

... Thank you. I have been doing a bit of internet research myself on Niacin. I also found some useful information in "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Drs. James and Phyllis Balch. I started today by cutting my Lipitor down to a half dose. Have cut out the Altace altogether (cough) and cut the Atenolol in half as well. We shall see. Not sure what to do about the... (17 replies)
... phja, Have not seen you post in some time till recently (welcome back?) No, no cholesterol meds now. The only ones I really took were the tricor, for the triglycerides mainly and to minimally lift HDL, then Niaspan/Niacin to give the HDL a boost.

... Red Rice Yeast is a 'natural' form of statin. It's so close that Merck (I believe) tried to block it. I was told by my health store that some had to be pulled about 1 year ago because of possible toxins in the manufacturing - he said it's not an issue now. I think you have to follow the precautions of not mixing with grapefruit or Niacin. See this FDA link:
