Ok, this has been discussed over times here and thought I'd post a new thread....had dinner with a friend the other night and her friend is lowering cholesterol with higher doses of niacin....she does not want to do statins....don't blame her for a second.
This person has worked up to 3000mg niacin (flush type) every day....2 - 500mg caps right after each meal....she worked up to this dose and it's working for her....the flushing becomes less and less too with time.....
Do a search on the benefits of niacin, I take the flush type usually but only 100mg after a meal....my issues are not cholestrol but I do it for good prevention...and if you decide to go this route work up the dosing.....talk to MD if you feel that is necessary. jam
