Thanks for the extra info, Bob.

I look forward to seeing more of your uric acid blood test results. Because that’s the heart of controlling gout.

But, controlling attacks is something entirely different.

I realize ER can be difficult, and shouldn’t be necessary. So, I have always relied on Advil. But, when it hasn’t given me enough relief to stay active, I backed it up with Tylenol. Initially, I found that combo in a hospital. But, other doctors have backed it up. Also, friends but some say take them together and others say alternate every 2 hours or so. I think the best thing is to phone a doctor for advice or check your local pharmacist. Please don’t just take my word for it. Because medicine has to be professionally considered and I have no qualifications.
