I've taking this product twice a day well over 10 years with excellent results. Triglycerides are below 100 and HDLs up 30 points. I do experience flushing on rare occasions, but downing 16 oz of water (maybe a little more), makes the flushing dissipates in 5-10 minutes. As recommended a good diet and exercises makes it easier to tolerate. Best of all, I got off statins.

I just started. Day two and 3 and half hours after taking I'm covered in a rash head to toes. Feels like bee stings and somewhat itchy too. I'm scared this is an allergic reaction. Will call dr in the am. I'm skinny and exercise 6 days a week and inherited bad cholesterol. Trying not to go on statins.

Started off with total cholesterol at 320 and Triglycerides at 1400. I have been taking 1500mg of slo niacin every day for eight months. My total cholesterol is currently 140 and my triglycerides are 175. Yes I get flushing spells once or twice a week, but that is certainly worth the benefits I have received.

Been taking this at 250mg 2x daily for 2 weeks now. The flushing and headaches are a drag, which makes me not want to do anything but lie in bed with a fan on me. I am type 2 diabetic as well so it is making my bs go up every day. I can't take Asprin due to kidney issues and Tylenol just doesn't cut it to help the flushing. This is the last resort to get my triglycerides down. If I see results by the end of the month, I will continue to take it and just deal with the side effects.
