I would just like to add that I have been taking Allopurinol for years and only gave me minimal relief with attacks every month or 2. It only started working when I switched to the brand, (non generic) Zyloprim. When I took the generic, I still had uric acid levels that were borderline high and I was taking 200mg. Currently, I take 200mg of Zyloprim and haven’t had an attack in over a year. The only problem is my insurance doesn’t cover it and its expensive. From my point of view, worth it. I hope you can afford it.
