This is such a farse ... another cholesterol drug just like niaspan?! ... a cheap version of niaspan is niacin (the best solution for cholesterol) in a low dose (50-100 mg/day) every day. Notice the name similarity? Not an accident. My cholesterol was reduced 40 points in three months. I believe this would work for diabetes, coronary artery disease, and other ailments as well ... The best way to know if this will help is to ask your physician to check your niacin levels.
