I have been taking allopurinol 1 tablet per day since May 11th. I have experienced a different type of pain in my foot and began taking colchicine and I am surprised how well it works!! I take a pill .6 mg and the pain goes away after about 2 pills during the day. I have loosely been watching my diet and do drink a couple glasses of wine about once per week ( although there have been parties and I take along some tonic and possibly one glass of wine)
I am about due to get another uric acid reading from our clinic to see what my levels at at and will notify you about my new readings. Cheers, Gary
