I've been taking advicor for five years and now my doctor is switching me to zocor (simvastatin). How long does the niacin stay in your body. Flushing?
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. It peaks 5 hours after a single dose. Following years of treatment, it's probably safe to assume that it will take days (3-5) to wear off completely. Possibly longer depending on dose. ...Read more
Yes: Split it up to Niacin and lovastatin. ...Read more

Chances are that you don't have a lot left to grow in height at your age, but it is impossible to tell without some bold work testing and a bone age x-ray. Please see your doctor! ...Read more

I've taken my BP over 175 times in two days. I'm always worried about low BP. It's controlling my life! Doctors appt on the 5th. Any advice??
BP Obsession: My advice to you is to stop taking your BP for a while, and certainly do not check it nearly so often. Even if your BP is on the low side, it is generally not a problem if you're not having associated symptoms (dizziness, lightheaded, feel like passing out). If you do have symptoms but normal BP, then it is likely not the BP causing the symptoms. Go out and enjoy life and focus on feeling healthy! ...Read more
