Combined Allopurinol and Probenecid therapy for treatment of Uric acid kidney stones

I’m 58 yrs old and fortunately don’t suffer from gout in the conventional sense but I’ve recently experienced the onset of uric acid kidney stones. Fortunately, they’ve been quite small and perfectly spherical (1-2mm) and are passed painlessly. To eliminate their production my doctor has placed me on a treatment regime of 100mg once daily of Allopurinol combined with 250mg twice daily of Probenecid for 1 week and then increased to 500mg twice daily for the 2nd week.

I’d be interested if others with this condition who have received this treatment might like to comment.
