Reply To: The Doctor Visit for Allopurinol


Week 1 of Allopurinol

Well, this past week I’ve had the flu…so its very hard to tell the effect of the allo in terms of how I feel or side effects. Possibly it has a slightly draining effect but I’m not sure. I need to make sure I’m getting plenty of water regardless.

The blood test result was interesting. 3.7… but the strip area didnt get 100% covered. Still, I think i’ve put even less blood on it before and got a 4.4 or something, so it seems its going down. I’m content to wait for further weeks’ data to see the real effect.

No difference in tophi and I have to remind myself those things don’t correct overnight.
