    All the statin drugs caused aching in my joints to the point of sleeplessness. I had been on niacin years ago but got off to try statin drugs. I take 1000mg at night and 500 in the morning, and am losing about thirty pounds with Weight Watchers. I don't have high blood pressure, I exercise daily, but the extra weight is literally killing me so it has to go. My joints don't hurt, I am m ... Show Full Comment

    My first review here because this stuff CAN be a miracle. Take it with Inositol (makes it flush-free), and be careful not to over do this as liver toxicity can happen! I was already on generic Lipitor, but not getting good results as my lipid profile was horrid. So-so cholesterol, but triglycerides of 700+ and I was recovering from an early age stroke. Niacin/flush free, with the small amount of g ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken Niaspan (prescription Niacan) for about two years. I started with 500mg and my doctor increased to 1000mg about 60 days later. I have had flushing on occasion and two very severe experiences with exteme itching. It was intollerable to the point that my legs would tremble uncontrolably. I have decided to stop taking this medication because the reaction was so severe.

    I've taken niacin for nearly 5 years. Started w/250mg twice/day. Increased by 250mg as flushing subsided at each level. Now taking 1000mg twice/day. HDL up 50%, LDL reduced 50%, triglycerides now in normal range. No side effects except for flusing. MD advised not to take no flush, it does not have the chloesterol reducing effect.
