Had a horrible few days, reaction to Allopurinol seems to be getting worse. I had started off with 100mg of Allopurinol about two months ago, then went up to 200mg. Thats when the nasty side effects started to hit. I am very dizzy, could not go out today, now also getting stomach aches after food. Feeling very tired also have major pain in knees/feet.
Had been taking Cochiline (sorry re spelling), dr took me off that. I have Naproxen and Celebrex for pain if needed.
Not sure where to go with this, I cannot remember the alternate medication the Doc said I could try, will call him tomorrow to see what he thinks.

Talk about the cure being worse than the disease, lol…:-)
