droy said:the gold standard med. for gout is allopurinol. :wink:
Pain killers are just a band aid. this med. actually works with no side effects.
i know i take it on a reg. basis.
Allopurinol is the answer! Cheap generic, I get it via mail order for $3 for 90 day supply. Got to your doc and get it. Take 1 300MG pill a day. Colcichine(sp) will knock it out quickly but Allopurinol will keep it from coming back. I am 49 and have had it since the early 80's. My case was not what I ate. Body just did not process it correctly. PAIN is bad, can't stand a sheet to touch it!
