I had my latest appointment at my Lipid Clinic on Friday. I stopped taking statins 12 months ago and my TC is 10.3 (the same as it was before I stopped taking my meds). Consultant now wants me to try Niaspan. Does anyone have any information/experience of this drug? I had stopped statins after suffering extreme side-effects and I have felt better over the past year than for many many years. Because of this I have reservations about taking any meds at all as they all can have side-effects but I am also aware that at 10.3 my TC is very high (I have FH btw). Any comments would be appreciated! Thanks.
