Thanks again Keith. I am totally convinced about your strategy to control gout and clear the crystals.

My take/strategy is this: I will start again the colchicine 0,5 as prophylaxis and after a week or so will up the allopurinol dose from the 300 I take now to maybe not 900 but to 600. In three months I will have a blood test and check UA level; hopefully it will be under 4.0. I will take it from there.

In any case, how do you go about upping the dose from 300 to 600 ? Weekly increases of 100? Incrementally? Or just double it in one go? What is your experience with this? The actual dose of 300 sits very well with me; no side effects whatsoever. And also, should I split the 600 in two takes (breakfast and dinner)?

Thanks again for your efforts in summarizing these matters for us. Great help!

Best regards

Maurice
