I am a long term ME patient who has elevated cholesterol - something I seem to remember reading, decades ago, was not uncommon in ME - and I am trying niacin rather than cholesterol lowering drugs. The Niacin I purchased is Inositol Hexanicotinate which, I discovered only after opening, may not be as effective as Niacin in lowering cholesterol. Oy. I feel like I've just entered a degree level course of study and it's more than I can seem to handle with the cognitive abilities I have at the moment. I thought I'd see if there were any Niacin experts who might take pity on me, and where better to look than here :0) Many thanks in advance!
