Thanks d_q 🙂

With regard to allopurinol, I recall reading an editorial style article by a rheumatologist. Unfortunately, I can’t remember who he is, or which publication he wrote for. But, he made a case for taking allopurinol for a month each year. Ie, by taking high doses of allopurinol for a month, that should dissolve any crystals that have formed in the year. Because 11 months of crystal deposition should not be long enough to cause problems.

Of course, that is just theory for now. Also, I’m not convinced that it’s very superior to just popping a pill each day. But, it’s always good to have choices.
