Flush-free Niacin
Feb 6, 2001

Does flush-free niacin (niacin with inositol added) work as well as plain niacin for lowering abnormally high cholesterol?

Response from Dr. Henry

I am not aware of any data on that. A common sense approach would suggest that, for persons who have a flushing reaction to regular niacin, to try that product out and watch for flushing as well as check the cholesterol levels after 4 weeks. KH

7 months past still negative
no AIDS or HIV, but have salty taste in mouth
