Nicotinic acid (NA) and fumaric acid esters (FAE) such as monomethyl fumarate or dimethyl fumarate are drugs that elicit a cutaneous reaction called flushing as a side effect. NA is used to reduce progression of atherosclerosis through its anti-dyslipidemic activity
Douglas MacKay et al.
Nutrition reviews, 70(6), 357-366 (2012-06-01)
Elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) has been the main target of lipid-altering therapy to reduce cardiovascular risk associated with dyslipidemia. Residual cardiovascular risk remains, however, after achievement of goal LDL-C levels and is associated in part with other risk markers
E T Bodor et al.
British journal of pharmacology, 153 Suppl 1, S68-S75 (2007-11-27)
Nicotinic acid has been used for decades to treat dyslipidaemic states. In particular its ability to raise the plasma HDL cholesterol concentration has led to an increased interest in its pharmacological potential. The clinical use of nicotinic acid is somewhat

Niacin (nicotinic acid) has been used for decades as a lipid-lowering drug. The clinical use of niacin to treat dyslipidemic conditions is limited by its side effects. Niacin, along with fibrates, are the only approved drugs which elevate high density
Martina Lukasova et al.
Trends in pharmacological sciences, 32(12), 700-707 (2011-09-29)
Nicotinic acid (niacin) has been used for decades to prevent and treat atherosclerosis. The well-documented antiatherogenic activity is believed to result from its antidyslipidemic effects, which are accompanied by unwanted effects, especially a flush. There has been renewed interest in
