Reply To: The Doctor Visit for Allopurinol

I’ve also had the flu. So, you have my sympathies. Thankfully getting better now.

It’s very wise to keep hydrated. Allopurinol can cause problems if you have insufficient urine to clear it’s by-products. Problems are rare, but it’s good to be aware of them.

Tophi shrinking is definitely a long term outcome. But, you’re going in the right direction 🙂
