How long does niacin side effects last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does niacin side effects last


Avatar f tn Unless you have experienced the full brunt of side effects from statins, you can not state "just stick it out". The side effects are unbearable. I finally asked my doctor if it was really healthier that i went from someone who worked out at the gym 5 days a week to someone gobbling pain medicine and laying on the couch. I had no life on the meds and so, I opted to take the risk.
Avatar n tn how long do these withdrawals last if I'm on day 14 and was throwing up today and still feel all those symptons they say happens to you? i stopped cold turkey and i just want to know when all the pain will go away.
Avatar n tn How are you? Are there other symptoms that you are experiencing? Niacin, or vitamin B3, is a powerful mobilizer of both fat and the fat-soluble toxins. As a vasodilator, niacin increases the flow of blood to the skin dilates blood vessels and creates a sensation of warmth, called a "niacin flush" or sensation of heat. These are the most common side effects when using Niacin: diarrhea; dry skin; headache; itching; stomach upset; temporary skin redness, tingling or feelings of warmth.
Avatar n tn Kind of glad to know others have the same problem with joint pain but really tired of it. Exercise does help with energy level but we should all ask our doctors about the long term effects of treatment and what we can do about it. It really is kind of everywhere in my joints, does not stick to just one place. If anyone gets any answers about this let me know.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Now that I'm on this medication, the heart rate has decreased a bit, I was at rest at 104 now it's at 90 at night it goes to 77, and the chest pressure I was feeling that is gone. My question is, how long would it takebefore the meds control my blood pressure?
Avatar f tn I don't take it anymore and i've heard others comment about side-effects of stains too. Hope you feel better soon. PlateletGal - I do know some jokes...but not appropriate for here (hee hee hee). I'm still herxing a bit. It's better, but it sure does make me drag sometimes. Feeling a tad blue...Dh is going for his daughter's graduation in NY and i'm not. I just can't make a trip that long...I get feelings of being left out of things. FMS/CFS is isolating and it stinks!!!
Avatar f tn I hav't had ANY of those side effects. I was worried about the 'sugar' increase (possibly) but, it hasn't happened & high sugar runs in our family. The muscle jerks I was terrified of. My Father has Non-hogkins, which causes the tremors, but after being on the Abilify for many years that doesn't seem to apply either. I've not gained any lbs. except in show of the Depakote. I gained an embassingly huge amt. of weight while on Zyprexa, but lost it once that got out of my system!
Avatar n tn How long until you start to loose weight on Wellbutrin? Does that part start right after the 1st 2 weeks? I have been binge eating and cant seem to control my sweet tooth as i used to in the past! I just started Wellbutrin 2 days ago!!! I was on Paxil in the past and gained a total of 20 pounds in just 4 months!
Avatar n tn Geno1b, 41year male, live in Iceland, 3rd week starting now, lost 2 or 3 KG already (165 KG now). viral load 400.000 ,sligtly anemic (HGB 12)Lots of side effects, nothing unbearable though. Actually feel better now than prior to treatment. all my joint pain has gone. takes me 3 days to get from one end of the house to the other. 1 day to think about it, one day to moan about it, and 1 day not to do it, so I just stay in the same place. I think my ears are dropping off though.
Avatar n tn Not sure if this fits into this thread and if it does not, please accept my appology as i am a new user, if you must know the answer to the question, well it is a yes it sorta of does but not without the help of dhydrotestosterone, this is generally produced during puberty and since most of us have past that stage then NO unless of course you get your hands on some DHT cream and apply it to your penis every day (You will most likely grow substantially in size) however not without the risk of pos
Avatar f tn In my limited experience, it would seem that aside from the sensory symptoms you mention, all the other symptoms could be related to stress and anxiety, side effects from antidepressant medications, or circulatory issues common in people with a sedentary lifestyle (which is becoming a lot more common since the advent of television and computers as leisure activities.
Avatar m tn Over the past 24 hours I have noticed that the supplementation effects seems to last longer and longer. For example I experienced >100 non-skipped beats first thing in the morning, 8 hours after my last dose. I attribute this to increasing blood or tissue levels of Taurine, EPA and DHA.
Avatar n tn hon, this thread is old enough you might not get the help and support. Go up to the top and click on the orange ask a question icon. Repost (cut and paste) your post and it will start a new thread that will be seen! This is a very active group and you will get help! Glad you are here.
Avatar f tn Ok. I might have a reverse patm. Hopefully it might be the key to the 'cure'. Most of my life, I've projected some kind of dominance over others. Then an incident happened where I realized that dominance could somehow be fearful to others. Completely confused I've decided to stop projecting such energy. Now, I can clearly tell people around me are coughing whenever I lower myself, or not myself anymore.
Avatar n tn Having said that, I do believe the biggest problem with heart disease is processed sugar. I don't think it matters how much meat or fat we eat, but it does matter how much sugar we consume. Sugar is instant energy in pure form, and the amount we eat is far more than we can manage to burn. This leaves the liver to convert it into special fats which are different from fats we get in our meat etc.
1358341 tn?1282213443 I give my cat a probiotic, Miralax 1/4 teaspoon twice a day for constipation, this can be bought over the counter here..The vet said it was fine to give and that there were no side effects except her stool could become too loose and if that happened to cut back a little on the miralax. I also give her as of recently b12 in METHYLCOBALAMIN for, sublingual, I crush it up in her food once a day, 1/4 of the 1mg.. This helps with constipation also and some cats with renal problems .
519736 tn?1253990426 I have no knowledge of these medications, but did look up side effects of statins. If it does happen to be a side effect, how long should he wait to see if this pain resolves itself after stopping the lipitor....any help is appreciated.
Avatar n tn Don't know if I'd take it every night if I'd have side effects. I know other people who take Zocor and never experienced side effects. Aspirin can give some people serious side effects, vitamins can give serious side effects, artificial sweeteners can have serious side effects in "some" people. For example if I only take one "coated" aspirin my stomach lining will burn until I take Mylanta, an antacid tablet wont even take the burning away.
Avatar m tn insulin resistance, obesity (especially abdominal obesity), high blood pressure, abnormalities in blood clotting, and lipid abnormalities. I understand your concern over statin side effects, but ALL drugs have side effects. Your doctor will weigh the benefit and risk to recommend the best treatment for your situation. A statin makes sense from what I read in your story.
544292 tn?1268886268 Bronchitis side effects only. YAY! I don't wanna get too excited but MAN it was nice after the last few days! No drug thoughts except early morning wake up Demons which I avoid by practically jumping out of bed! How are you all doing? Let me know ok? It does get better ... even on days when it is bad. It is still not a day that you have taken the demon poison pill .... so that's a good thing!
Avatar m tn It has been studied particularly as a treatment for intermittent claudication (a kind of leg cramping caused by hardening of the arteries), Niacinamide is another form of niacin; it does not lower cholesterol. Niacin has documented effects for improving cholesterol profile, but only when taken in doses that are far higher than the RDAs and ULs, ranging from 1,000 mg to 4,000 mg (1 to 4 grams) per day. Liver injury is a real possibility when niacin is used in this way.
602157 tn?1443565954 How long does this last? Could be Vertigo? I have this feeling all day and trying to figure it out? Been to specialist etc.They keep sending me to someone else. I get nausis as well sometimes. Sleeping is about the only relief at this point for me.
Avatar n tn I would just like someone with personal experience with actually using Niacin to lower raise their HDL, to let us know what kind they took, how much they took, and how long they were on it, and what results occured, what was their HDL before using it and then after using it. I to, am a patient, and need real support on how to really raise my HDL.
Avatar n tn Have you tried it? Any side effects? I also use the ARB Diovan with HCTZ which keeps me fluid free but with little or no effect on theBP. I am also on Niaspan for lipid control but with no flushing side effects although it elevates my BG levels. Is flushing a sign of vasodilation/NO response? What are leukotrienes ‘pressors’ and how do they affect BP? Finally your explanation of HTN-induced renal disease. Would the Diovan take care of this or the spironolactone be better suited?
182493 tn?1348056515 If fact most of them think we’re idiots because we doubt and ask questions.
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
152159 tn?1200086054 If you need the meds, start out slow as I did, every other day, and see what it does to you as in side effects, if you get side effects then stop taking the meds and tell your doctor. If you don't get side effects continue to take the meds, have your liver checked every 3-4 months as well as your cholesterol. Exercise also is very good to boost your HDL, but again, different people react differently.
Avatar n tn Also, did you get flushing with the Niacin? And if so, how long before it went away? Have you ever had palpitations either before or after begining the Niacin? My doctor gave me Niaspan 500mg and I am scared to take it because I get PVC's, PAC's and some A-Fib. I am afraid it will aggravate them. Any input on your Niacin experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
