I've been taking the Niaspan ER 500mg Tabs for 2 weeks. I skipped 2 days about 7 days ago, but have been taking them before bed for 7 straight days. 2 hours after tonights dose, I started feeling a burning/tingling sensation in my head.

I have only been taking Niaspan 2 weeks. The only problems I have had is intense itching in my extremities and flushing that doesn't get warm (I just turn pink, on my extremities). It's a small price to pay if it will raise my HDL. It's not nearly as bad as hot flashes!

Prescribed for triglycerides....three weeks ago. Extreme flushing and burning/tingling sensations. Aspirin doesn't seem to help. Curious about the "non-flushing" variety.
