In brief: Niaspan (niacin)

It depends on why you are taking it, and the expected outcome.
This should be discussed with your doctor.

In brief: Niaspan (niacin)

Niaspan (niacin) can be very helpful in lowering cholesterol.
Recent studies have demonstrated that it may not be helpful for reducing cardiac events. May want to discuss this with the doctor prescribing the medication.
