gout
Im a gout patient from last 4-5 years. i was put allopurinol 100mg about three years back and I had gout attacks every 6 to 8 months as I was cutting down on allopurinol quiet often. I some time will take 1/2 or none of the prescription. I was trying to use diet and exercise to prevent gout. I feel exercise does help a lot.

In 2013 after having a gout attack on my foot and I could not get to do my routine for app a month. This upset my whole routine. Constant visit to doctor was no relief. My doctor changed my allopurinol to Uloric in a very sytematic way. He put me on prednizone and colcry for almost a month to relieve me from pain and remove uric acid. After that I introduced Uloric. Now I had uloric for 3 months and my life is not getting any better. I had 5-6 severe gout attack with new medicine. My doctor says that I must continue with colcry twice a day with uloric. I feel that this is an experiment and is going wrong. My last 6 months have been going thru hell. I have had so much medicine that I could not even imagine.

I need to get advise about the use of Uloric and if i could do anything to get relief from gout.
