Definitely continue taking it. Don’t take twice as much to compensate, just the regular amount.
It’s fine to forget to take allopurinol once in a while because it’s slow-acting and stays in your system a while anyway. But you try not to neglect taking it several days in a row.
Allopurinol won’t make the pain go away now that it’s here but I assume you know what pills to take on top of allopurinol for the inflammation and pain.
