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.

Effective cholesterol control

By Dodging heart disease

Pros

  • Effective

Cons

  • Flushing

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

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

I've been taking 1500mg of Slo-Niacin daily for a few years to control cholesterol. It is as effective and less costly than Niaspan. My LDL is down and HDL is up.
While the product is time released to minimize flushing, it is still possible. On the advice of my physician, I have a small snack, take the 1500mg and go to bed. This works 95% of the time with no flushing. However, if I have trouble getting to sleep, I do experience flushing infrequently.
Drugstore.com is the only place I've found the 1500mg caplets and the price is excellent, especially if you buy during a supplement sale.

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

    I took NIASPAN for 2 years but the insurance company raised the price sky high. After consulting my cardiologist, I started taking this instead. Two blood tests later, this is working just as good as the Niaspan did and at a lower dose! The difference in price is astronomical!

            Great to find a Slo-Niacin in 750 mg - results in having to take fewer capsules.
