The properties of these two drugs are quite different but there is no reason to believe that one would remove tophi better than the other. With both drugs, it’s the dose which matters. Your Uloric pills are probably stronger than the ones you used to take but you could have taken more than one allopurinol pill every day instead of switching to Uloric.
