... I have been taking Niacin for 10 years now and it does work. You should really consult your physician though as you need a liver enzyme test to get a base line before you start. ... (34 replies)
... Lenin, I've never heard of that brand, but the name alone (PIONEER) does sound ancient :D . You've had this stuff laying around for 15 years? I don't think I've ever taken anything that was that old, except maybe my beloved J. Haig & Co. Dimple Pinch scotch, which is 15 years old :D . Anyway, since you are still experiencing a flush from your niacin, there must still be... (34 replies)
... I am currently using an ANCIENT big bottle of 500 mg. niacin that has a yellowing PIONEER BRAND on it. ... (34 replies)

... Lenin, Don't become too impatient with the relatively small short-term effects it has had on your HDL. It takes time. I think that the longer you take it the more you will likely benefit. At least, that's been my experience, and I've been taking it for about 20 years already. I think you must be taking the same brand of niacin that I take (Puritan's Pride 250mg?). Since...

... I'm in the same boat and I must work like the Dickens to keep my HDL out of the 30's. Before the Lipitor it was 28 for me but the statin got me 7 points. Sousing can get me into the high 50's but that isn't really an option anymore. I think I'm gettin a LITTLE boost (maber 4-5 points) from the low dose niacin (averaging about 500 mg/day quick hit.) This week I'll try... (34 replies)
... Lenin, I will definitely post my results. I'm starting off very slowly (250mg/day) to let my body get used to it. If I don't get a significant improvement in HDL, I'll consider upping it to 500mg/day - and see if I can tolerate it. I don't think I'd want to go beyond 750mg/day. There are lots of warnings about using Niacin in 'therapeutic' dosages (1000+mg/day) - so... (34 replies)
... Agree with that one. I wouldn't take it. Look for a different solution. (34 replies)
... If the angioedema took 2 days to recover, I would NEVER take ANY niacin again. The risk is too great and sometimes the first dose is sensitizing and the second is a killer. ... (34 replies)
... Hmmm, I broke 200 tablets of 500 mg. niacin into 4 pieces each with MUCH WORK for a total of 800 pieces... ... (34 replies)

... Oh I have LOTS of dizepam in the closet...but that's MY prescription:D. I think it's a wonder drug too. I take it sparingly so that it keeps on working as long as I do. (34 replies)

... I take a prescription NIACIN brand called "NIACOR" 500 mg tabs (I believe it is the only Immediate release prescription brand). I found this to be the cheapest. ( I only pay a $20.00 copay for 3 months X 3,000 mg a day) My doctor did not really care what brand I used. I also purchase brands such as TWINLAB, CARLSON and PURITAN'S PRIDE when they are on sale. I sometimes... (31 replies)
