  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Is this a Niacin side effect? I woke with a rash yesterday, just took one dose of Niacin yesterday at dinner, versus 3X per day. After dinner the rash became worse. I chewed 3 baby Aspirin, which helped diminish the hot feeling, but did not change or eliminate the rash. I took 2 Benadryl at bedtime. This morning I woke up to worse rash, my neck is very swollen today, my eyes are more swollen shut, and my throat is itchy. Should I be concerned about anaphylactic shock? How long should I monitor this very severe rash? I am in touch with a MD, but have no guidance at the moment, perhaps he will call at end of day. Thank you.
