Thank you Keith! I thought if the recent attack was part of the expected attacks that may occur when starting allopurinol until the gout is eventually out of your system I could cope with that as the attack was much quicker and much less long-winded and painful than previous attacks so I thought maybe just stay on 100mg that was my issue. I am happy for now at 100mg but perhaps if I get another attack I will go see a different doctor and make sure I relay my uric acid levels and get a proper explanation as to why increasing would help.
