"... 5.3 Laboratory Abnormalities
Increase in Blood Glucose: Niacin treatment can increase fasting blood glucose. Frequent monitoring of blood glucose should be performed to ascertain that the drug is producing no adverse effects. Diabetic patients may experience a dose-related increase in glucose intolerance. Diabetic or potentially diabetic patients should be observed closely during treatment with Niaspan, particularly during the first few months of use or dose adjustment; adjustment of diet and/or hypoglycemic therapy may be necessary."
