Good on you to have found a drug that keeps your symptoms down!
Like you said, diet isn’t a cure-all when it comes to gout. So I don’t think you should focus on diet right now.
Likewise, I wouldn’t worry about allopurinol side effects unless you already suspect you are experiencing side effects. But do rush to a doctor if you get a serious akin rash or allergy-like swelling because that could be serious. Getting your blood tests in due course is also useful when it comes to potential side effects because that’s an opportunity to monitor your liver and kidney function.
