On allopurinol for 2 months now, dose up to 300 mg, have acid reflux with most foods in evening, gaviscon works on it. For 1st month had loss of appetite and loss of taste as well, that is mostly gone now. Still more tired than usual, hope that adjusts itself as well. Hope this drug helps because it has really been kicking my butt, will stick with it. I turned vegetarian a yr. ago after gout diagnosis and that has helped, at first lost abt. 8 lbs but since starting allopurinol have gained it back.
