Be careful with Febuxostat!

A brother in-law of mine had a severe (life-threatening) stroke recently, and the cause has been traced to Febuxostat/Uloric. He’s only in his mid-40’s and almost left behind a wife and three young kids. He has a long road of rehab ahead and will likely never regain full functionality.

I’m glad that allopurinol is working ok for me so far (fingers crossed!).
