Oh Gout... Leave me alone!
« on: September 26, 2015, 11:18:23 pm »
Another episode of gout attack, since i stopped taking my allopurinol for about a month and i have lost weight, this painful gout flare up is unbearable.

What shall i do now?



REMINDERS:

If you have recently had a gout attack, make sure your symptoms have completely gone before you start taking allopurinol tablets.

Take allopurinol exactly as your doctor tells you to. The usual starting dose is one tablet (100 mg) each day, although this may be increased as you go on. Your dose will be adjusted in line with how much uric acid is in your blood.

Remember, allopurinol should be taken every day to prevent a gout attack. It can take 2-3 months to become fully effective. It does not have any effect during a gout attack, although you should continue to take it regularly every day even if this happens. :-[

Treatment with allopurinol is usually long-term unless you experience an adverse effect. Continue to take the tablets unless you are advised otherwise by a doctor.
