The lastest recommendations I’ve seen say it’s OK as long as you test above 3. And even if you test under 3 once, it’s no big deal. So far as I know, there only is cause for concern if your uric acid is super-low for years on end.
That said, allopurinol is not an innocuous drug and so I think it would be prudent to take as little as you actually need. Have you tried taking 200mg?
