    Slo-Niacin was recommended by my cardiologist for improving HDL cholesterol numbers. I could not tolerate prescription Niacin because of flushing. I have had very little problems tolerating Slo-Niacin and my cholesterol numbers improved within 60 days.

    I tried this to avoid the niacin side effects of flushing and pins&needles effect. However, I experienced a reaction so severe I came very close to going to the ER. Fortunately, it subsided after about 45 mins. It was a VERY SCARY experience!! If you have had a reaction to niacin in the past, please don't use this, especially if you are planning on driving anywhere!

          I enjoy the ease of swallowing, due the tablet's small size, but I still fell the flushing if I take the tablet on an empty stomach...

                I used this as an alternative to statins because I was concerned about possible muscle myopathy onset...so when my thigh muscle began to fail, I researched Niacin with regards to side effects, and it seems that Niacin can also cause this problem!

                  Great for helping with my elevated cholesterol levels. I take one 250mg. in the morning and one in the evening. With the lower dosage I avoid the Niacin flush that I used to experience with the 500mg. dosage. I highly recommend the time release element to this as well. Great stuff !

                          If you are taking this to control cholesterol, you may want to know it contains hydrogenated oil. Check out the ingredients. I don't know how much, but my tolerance level is zero. I tossed it.

                                  My doctor suggested this to lower my LDL count. (he specifically said to get SLO-niacin) So we'll see if this works after my next blood test.
