white pill 500 KOS

found in some napkins at my teenager room ## Abbott Laboratories lists this tablet as being Niaspan, which contains 500mgs of Niaspan. It is a supplement that is used to treat, or prevent a deficiency in it. The FDA warns that its side effects may include nausea, headache, dizziness, and flushing. The inactive ingredients may include: povidone stearic acid titanium dioxide ferric oxide red FD&C Yellow No. 6 ferric oxide yellow hypromelloses polyethylene glycol But they may vary depending on the manufacturing facility. Is there anything else I can help with?

White capsule Pill With Kvc

White capsule with KVC on one side and 1000 on the other ## Hi Cenic, The closest match I'm finding to your description is that of a white capsule-shaped/oblong pill marked with "KOS" on one side and "1000" on the other. This pill is identified as Niaspan ER 1000 mg; used in the treatment of high cholesterol, niacin deficiency, and more. Manufacturer: Kos Pharmaceuticals Does this sound like a possible match considering that the imprint isn't far off? ## Kind of, however the part where I run into problems is that the imprint says KVC very clearly. I found it in my room and am curious due to the fact I don't take any medicine. ## It's a vitamin C pill. Nothing to worry about. They're very popular in South Korea.

expiration date for niaspan er 500

expiration date is 9/2013. Is it ok to take yet? need to take again for cholesterol med. very costly stuff ## Hello, Mike! Your doctor may approve your taking it, but most medications tend to degrade with time due to exposure to the elements, so they can't be guaranteed to be fully effective past the expiration date. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Niaspan as possibly including nausea, facial flushing, dry skin, diarrhea and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with?

Niaspan (TAB 500GG ER)

Expiration date is 3 years ago. Is it safe to take? Is its efficacy lessened? It's very expensive - hate to dispose of. ## Yes, after that long of a period of time, it will definitely have lost efficacy and is most likely not worth trying to take. Learn more Niaspan details here. At this point, it would really be best to just dispose of it and pick up a new prescription if you still need to take it. Is it still prescribed for you?
