Good question: I researched your question: the half life of extended release Niacin in Advicor (lovastatin and niacin) is very variable, & depends on gender, dose, & individual characteristics.

I want to gain weight naturally and healthy, please give me some advice, like what I have to eat every day? (sorry for bad english, i'm indonesian)

This is a good thing: Your english is perfect. Eat plenty of protein, eat what you like, avoid greasy / salty / sugary stuff.
