    Slo-Niacin is the only non-prescription Niacin approved by my doctor to replace prescription Niaspan and yours is the only drugstore who sells it in all strengths (250, 750, 1000 mg) and the only drugstore at all to sell Slo-Niacin[...] Saves lots of money over the prescription Niaspan. Thank you! Niacin has raised my good cholesterol by leaps and bounds. Don't take without specific instructions from your doctor as you must build up dose gradually.

        Comments about Slo-Niacin Polygel Controlled-Release Niacin, 750mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

        I had been taking 1500mg of prescription Niaspan for several months. Occassionally I would get the "flushing" which Niaspan is supposed to help reduce. I even took it with 81mg of aspirin to help with the flushing. My doctor and pharmacist told me that taking Slo-Niacin should give the same clinical results but I might experience more flushing. I have yet to experience any flushing with Slo-Niacin and I have been taking it for 3 months now. My last test results show a marked improvement in HDL since taking Slo-NIacin.

          1825 mg SloNiacian has lowered all of my cholesterol numbers to "Awsome". Also, my uncontrolled blood pressure (using 4 different medicines) is now in control. There is some swelling of the lower leg and foot but a small price to pay for the benefits and not having to take a statin which made me very weak. Start out slowly to avoid upset stomach which was my experience the first time I tried it.

            I use Slo-Miacin to help control cholesterol after being told by a cardiologist to use the prescription niacin. He said "you need to feel the flush" that many otc niacin does not provide. I "feel the flush" at least twice a day with Slo-Niacin which means the timed release is working and with the proper dosage. "This product has been very effective for me.

              Slo-Niacin is one of the two non-prescription and effective slow release niacin formulations. Slo-Niacin is much more easily found than its competitor. (The prescription only Niaspan has been criticized as much less effective, though I have no personal experience with that.) Slo-Niacin does not "dissolve" as the time-release matrix is waxy and will actually pass through your system. To get the cholesterol control comparable to (better than) statins will require doses that should only be done with your doctors cooperation. They will want to monitor your liver enzymes. Read Dr. Parson's "Cholesterol Control Without Diet!" but I recommend using the start-up schedule found in Kowalski's "The New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure". Note that some people simply will not be able to tolerate Niacin, but for the rest of us, this is a wonderful product. P.S. Your doctor may want to put you on statins. Dr. Parson's book list the myriad ways Niacin is superior.

              Comments about Slo-Niacin Polygel Controlled-Release Niacin, 750mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

              A daily dosage of 1500mg (2 caps) each evening after a 30 minute wait after taking a regular generic aspirin has raised my HDL from single digits to 39. This is an excellent response. The polygel capsule will not dissolve but pass through your system intact. The niacin is slowly released through the microscopic membrane of the capsule to reduce the flushing effect. This is as it is designed and you may notice the capsules in the toilet. Great stuff and a fraction of the cost for those of us without prescription coverage.
