Hi,
Having gout pain while taking allopurinol is to be expected and is not a sign that anything is wrong. But I assume gout doesn’t make you dizzy.
Hopefully you simply caught a bug and these symptoms will go away.
But if you think you might be experiencing serious side effects from allopurinol and your symptoms don’t improve quickly, better see a doctor.
The benefit of allopurinol doesn’t go away very quickly so it’s not a big deal if for a single day you don’t take allopurinol or take only half your regular dose.
