If you’ve been tired since you’ve started allopurinol, you should discuss that with your doctor and make sure your health is being thoroughly monitored. The drug could conceivably be affecting you in a dangerous way.

This is indeed correct. You need to do a Full Blood Count and an Iron Studies and Ferratin blood test and post those figures here. (Ferratin might already be included in a Iron Studies test but check)

We can take advise a little further from there.
