Caption: Tredaptive cholesterol-lowering drug tablet and packaging. This drug contains nicotinic acid (niacin) and laropiprant. Niacin is a lipid (fat) lowering agent that reduces the overall amount of cholesterol, free fatty acids and triglycerides in the blood. It prevents the breakdown of fats in adipose tissue (fat storage tissue) including the breakdown of the precursor of low density lipoprotein (LDL), also known as 'bad' cholesterol. High blood levels of LDL lead to atherosclerosis, causing increased blood pressure and heart disease. Laropiprant is included to prevent skin flushing, a side effect of niacin.
