Possible Interaction: Insulin and Niacin





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The short-term administration of a nicotinic acid analogue (acipimox) increases insulin sensitivity and consequently glucose disposal, both in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and in patients with cirrhosis.

Activation of both nicotinic and muscarinic M(3)/M(4) receptors resulted in reduction of insulin release when compared with stimulation of muscarinic receptor alone in Beta-TC6 cells.
