combining niacin with Lipitor
Dec 24, 2007

Is it OK to take a niacin supplement while taking Lipitor to reduce triglycerides?

Response from Dr. Henry

Niacin can be used with statins (one combination product already on the market in US) including atorvastatin (Lipitor). Close monitoring for side effects such as myopathy is recommended. KH
