I'm on Tekturna-HCT and Atenolol for Blood Pressure, along with Uloric and Colchine for Gout. I understand that Niaspan can be an issue for Gout. My Bad Cholesterol is fine below guidelines, but my Good Cholesterol levels are low, so how does Niaspan help?

Firstly, Niaspan should be used cautiously in those predisposed to gout. Elevated uric acid levels have occurred with Niaspan (niacin) therapy.
Secondly, Niaspan is used along with diet and exercise to improve cholesterol levels. Niaspan raises HDL ("good") cholesterol and lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglycerides.
See: http://www.niaspan.com/UnderstandingCholesterol/Default.aspx for information on cholesterol levels and Niaspan.
