      My primary doctor recently suggested I take no flush niacin to help lower my triglycerides. I will be getting a blood test to see if it has helped. I like the no flush version because it does not make your face blush.

      Be careful - I had to go to ER

            I was suggest starting with a low dose until you are sure that you are not going to have a reaction. I am probably just one of the unlucky ones but thought I should post this as a warning. I used to use slow-release niacin and had no problems. I switched to this brand and within a few minutes of taking my first tablet had severe flushing and tingling and was shaking so I panicked which pushed up my blood pressure to over 200/120 so was rushed to the emergency room.

                I have used niacin for years. This is the best product I have found so far. The flush is harmless and gets better with time. I use this to control my blood pressure per Doctor instructions. The no flush type offers no help with B.P. Must have the flush to be effective. I highly recommend this one for those who want an effective supplement!!

                  My doctor (M.D.) and naturopath both told me two things: 1) If there's no flush there's no use taking niacin. 2) The flush won't kill you and after a few doses the flushing reduces greatly or disappears. I've found this to be true. I take 1500 at once and barely flush. I take it with food.

                  I have been taking niacin for three years to lower my LDL cholesterol, and it works beautifully! My MD said (under his care) I could take up to 4 grams/day, but need only 1.5 gm to do the job. My LDL was lowered 80 points and the HDL raised 40 points. He also said, "No flush, no work."

                  This is a great product, and has been highly effective with reducing my cholesterol without my having to go on prescription meds. The flush that others speak of is because they have started with too high of a dosage. You need to start out with about 100 mg, then increase slowly. Google how to dosage niacin. You should never start out with 500mg. The flush, just so you know, is actually healthy, though can be an odd sensation. It is your blood vessels opening up and allowing flow of blood and oxygen to your skin, which is the flush. Most people will find that a side effect of the flush is that their skin tone and texture may improve. I'm a believer. I lowered my LDL, raised my HDL and lowered my tri's. Take niacin, but learn how to take it before jumping into a 500mg dosage! p.s. my doctor advised that you can minimize the flush effect by taking a baby aspirin, but I haven't had much luck with that. I don't mind the flush. It usually lasts about 20 minutes.

                      Sure, it made me bright red the first few weeks of taking. After 3 months, my cholestorol went from 239 to 171. The only thing I took was this product.

                      I take it now. I get a little flush here and there. But some of the no-flush niacins haven't been proven to lower cholestorol like regular niacin.

                      In conclusion, if you take a little bit at a time (break it in pieces), your body will get somewhat used to it. It will get to a point where if you take it after dinner, you won't flush at all.

                      A little flushing for a few weeks/month is much better (and a lot less expensive) than a lifetime on cholestorol medicine.

                            The flushing occurred within 10 minutes, and was horrible. My skin turned red all over my body, and lasted for about an hour. The feeling that my face was on fire only lasted about 30 minutes, as if that's any consolation. I threw out the rest of the bottle.

                                I've taken Niacin for years with minor side effects, but this stuff was scary. I felt like the top of my head was coming off. I felt like i was going to faint and I had total body flushing for over 2 hours.
