Abbott Statement on the Results of the AIM-HIGH Study Presented at AHA 2011
Date:11/15/2011

hen Niaspan is taken with a statin, particularly in the elderly, diabetics, and those with kidney or thyroid problems.
  • Niaspan should be used with caution if you consume large amounts of alcohol and/or have a past history of liver disease.
  • Your health care provider should do blood tests before and during treatment to check liver enzyme levels, as these may increase with treatment.
  • Tell your health care provider if you have kidney problems, or a history of gout. Niaspan may cause an increase in uric acid levels.
  • Niaspan may cause an increase in blood sugar levels.  If you have diabetes, check your blood sugar levels more frequently during the first few months or with Niaspan dose changes.
  • The most common side effects with Niaspan are flushing, headache, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, increased cough and itching.
  • Flushing (warmth, redness, itching and/or tingling of the skin) is a common side effect of niacin therapy that may get better after several weeks of consistent Niaspan use.  It may vary in severity and is more likely to happen when starting Niaspan or during dose increases.  Talk to your doctor about how the symptoms of flushing are different from symptoms of a heart attack.  By dosing at bedtime, flushing will likely occur during sleep. If awakened by flushing, get up slowly, especially if feeling dizzy or faint, or taking blood pressure medications.
  • If you are taking another cholesterol medication called a bile acid-binding resin (e.g., colestipol, cholestyramine) along with Niaspan, take these medicines at least 4 to 6 hours apart.
  • Some medicines should not be taken with Niaspan.  Tell your health care provider about all the medicines you take, including aspirin, any cholesterol medication, blood pressure medication, or blood thinner medication, or any products containing niacin or nicotinamide.

  • For more information, talk with your health care pr
