1. Geoff Schardein Geoff Schardein United States says:

    I used to take Niaspan which is quite expensive, upon looking at options I came across Slo-Niacin which is about 10% of the cost of Niaspan. Upon consulting my primary care doctor and cardiologist I substituted Slo-Niacin at the same dosage and had similar if not better HDL results and less flushing than with Niaspan. I take 2,000 milligrams daily at night to minimize the flushing which still occurs but is milder and of less duration. So while the study may not have shown improved results I still feel the raised HDL is worth it for me.
