•Facts About Flushing

About Flushing
When taking niacin supplements, some people, but not all, may experience a side effect called niacin flushing. Niacin flushing may occur with the use of nicotinic acid, which causes temporary vasodilation or widening of blood vessels in the skin.^ Symptoms of niacin flushing may include temporary itching and tingling, feelings of warmth and headache, particularly when beginning or increasing the dose.^ SLO-NIACIN® contains nicotinic acid, but the distinctive polygel® controlled-release system is designed to help reduce the likelihood of niacin flushing.^ It’s important to know that niacin flushing is usually temporary and seldom requires one to stop taking niacin.^

SLO-NIACIN® is designed to minimize flushing
To help reduce the likelihood of niacin flushing, SLO-NIACIN® Tablets have been designed with a distinctive polygel® controlled-release system that ensures the gradual and measured release of nicotinic acid into the body.^ Controlled release of nicotinic acid is intended to minimize flushing and itching while ensuring that you receive a doctor-recommended form of niacin trusted to help support good cholesterol levels (HDL).^

The “flush-free” myth
Although “flush-free” types of niacin (inositol hexaniacinate, inositol hexanicotinate, or nicotinamide) may not cause flushing, these types of niacin are not clinically proven to support good cholesterol.^ Some even recommend against “flush-free” types of niacin because they are not clinically proven to support good cholesterol.^

Tips to avoid niacin flushing^
◦Talk to your healthcare professional about taking 1 aspirin or ibuprofen 30 minutes before taking SLO-NIACIN® Tablets
◦Take SLO-NIACIN® Tablets with a low-fat snack and cold water
◦Take SLO-NIACIN® Tablets before going to bed
◦Do not take SLO-NIACIN® Tablets with spicy foods, alcohol, coffee, tea, or other hot drinks

Adults - One Slo-Niacin tablet morning or evening, or as directed by a physician.


Before using more than 500 mg. daily, consult a physician.


Note: Slo-Niacin tablets may be broken on the score line, but should not be crushed or chewed.


Store at controlled room temperature, 15-30°C (59-86°F). Keep tightly closed.


CAUTION:


Niacin may cause temporary flushing, itching and tingling, feelings of warmth and headache, particularly when beginning, increasing amount or changing brand of niacin. These effects seldom require discontinuing niacin use. Skin rash, upset stomach, and low blood pressure when standing are less common symptoms; if they persist, contact a physician.

WARNINGS:
SLO-NIACIN® Tablets should not be used by persons with a known sensitivity or allergy to niacin. Persons with heart disease, particularly those who have recurrent chest pain (angina) or who recently suffered a heart attack, should take niacin only under the supervision of a physician. Persons taking high blood pressure or cholesterol-lowering drugs should contact a physician before taking niacin because of possible interactions. Case reports of myopathy (unexplained muscle related complaints, including discomfort, weakness, or tenderness) have been documented with the use of HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors in combination with lipid-altering doses of niacin therapy (≥1 gram of niacin per day). Do not take niacin unless recommended by and taken under the supervision of a physician if you have any of the following conditions: gallbladder disease, gout, arterial bleeding, glaucoma, diabetes, impaired liver function, peptic ulcer, pregnancy or lactating women. Increased uric acid and glucose levels and abnormal liver function tests have been reported in persons taking daily doses of 500 mg or more of niacin.
Discontinue use and consult a physician immediately if any of the following symptoms occur: persistent flu-like symptoms (nausea, vomiting, a general “not well” feeling); loss of appetite; a decrease in urine output associated with dark-colored urine; muscle discomfort such as tender, swollen muscles or muscle weakness; irregular heartbeat; or cloudy or blurry vision.

Keep out of reach of children.
