Uses for Niaspan® (niacin extended-release tablets)

Niaspan is a prescription medication used along with diet when a low-cholesterol diet and exercise alone are not enough.

  • Niaspan raises HDL ("good") cholesterol and lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglycerides in people with abnormal cholesterol levels.
  • Niaspan is also used to lower the risk of heart attack in people who have had a heart attack and have high cholesterol.
  • In people with coronary artery disease and high cholesterol levels, Niaspan, when used with a bile acid-binding resin (another cholesterol medicine), can slow down or lessen the build up of plaque (fatty deposits) in your arteries.
  • Niaspan can be used in combination with lovastatin or simvastatin to improve abnormal cholesterol levels when taking Niaspan, simvastatin, or lovastatin alone is not enough.
  • No additional benefit of Niaspan on heart disease has been demonstrated when used with simvastatin or lovastatin over that shown for niacin, simvastatin, or lovastatin alone.

Important Safety Information for Niaspan

  • Niaspan is not for people with liver problems, stomach ulcers, serious bleeding problems, or those allergic to any product ingredient.
  • Severe liver damage can occur when switching to a long-acting niacin (Niaspan) from immediate-release niacin.  Do not switch between forms of niacin without talking to your health care provider.
  • Tell your health care provider about any unexplained muscle pain, tenderness or weakness, as this could be a sign of a serious side effect.  This risk may be increased w
