Used as a dietary supplement with the advantage of a slower release of niacin than conventional dosage forms.
Adults: 1 Slo-Niacin Tablet morning or evening, or as directed by a physician. Before using more than 500 mg daily, consult a physician. Note: Slo-Niacin Tablets may be broken on the score line, but should not be crushed or chewed. The inactive matrix of the tablet is not absorbed and may be excreted intact in the stool.
Caution: Niacin may cause temporary flushing, itching and tingling, feelings of warmth and headache, particularly when beginning, increasing amount or changing brand of niacin. These effects seldom require discontinuing niacin use. Skin rash, upset stomach, and low blood pressure when standing are less common symptoms; if they persist, contact a physician. Keep out of reach of children.
Per Tablet: Niacin 250 mg (Nicotinic Acid); Cellulose Polymer Derivative; Vegetable Stearine; Magnesium Stearate; Silicon Dioxide; Glyceryl Behenate; FD&C Red No. 40
