it lsas 2 hrs
I was prescribed Niacin after my first heart attack. I experienced such extreme flushing (that is the name of the hot feeling you get) I could no longer take the Niacin. It was suggested that I take Benedryl along with the niacin to help with the flushing but it really didn't help so my doctor finally just took me off of it altogether. Check with your doctor and let him know how uncomfortable it is. Depending on why you are taking it there may be an alternative.
