So you’re taking nothing for your symptoms (allopurinol doesn’t count)? Ouch! Did colchicine not work? In that case, there are other options.

If you can’t handle 300mgs (or more) and test after test shows your uric acid remaining higher than your target, I’d ask about switching to another UA-reducing drug (assuming your doctor doesn’t broach the subject first).
And while you’re still figuring things out, consider getting tested more often if you can afford it. Necessary changes might be made quicker with more information.
