Getting Older – Fun with Niacin

Fun with Niacin  As we age we begin to find more and more “things”.  One of mine is high cholesterol.  To lower my cholesterol, my doctor first tried statin drugs (Lipitor, Crestor, etc).  Not long after I began taking Lipitor, I began experiencing muscle and joint aches and had problems remembering things I needed to do.  They switched me to another statin, and no change.  We tried diet and exercise, and that had some positive effects, but didn’t bring it low enough.  The next option was to try Niacin or vitamin B3.
