    Niaspan ER diovan hct, mg aspirin, lipitor, sunlight
    I normally take this before bed with an 80 mg aspirin, Lipitor, and diovan/HCT. One day I took it during the day and had itching but when I went back to the evening I had no reaction. Sunlight might activate the itching.

    Niaspan ER niaspan, bedtime
    I've been taking Niaspan for about a year and occasionally experience the flushing and itching. I learned that taking the drug just before bedtime is best. I tend to sleep through the side effect most times.
