User Comments about Slo-Niacin
17 Sep 2012 We switched from Flush Free Niacin to Slo Niacin. Within a week my wife could not take it as she turned as red as a beat and thought she was going to pass out. A few weeks later (late Dec.) I had a seizure and after every test the doctors could find nothing wrong with me. We thought niacin would help lower our cholesterol and after 1 year there was no difference in our numbers. We stopped taking Niacin about a week ago and the strange feeling I had in my head is now gone. It has me wondering if the Niacin was the cause of the seizures I had. Has anyone else had an experience like this?
