Feburic question from Evgeny, via the gout helpdesk.
Evgeny asked about Feburic dose after reading What Triggers Gout Attacks?
Please note that there are no doctors here. Keith might explain more later, but I will draw your attention to the standard notice:

I had UA of 9.3 and my doc asked me to begin with alopuriniol 100×2
After 1.5 year reach stable UA 6 – however the lever ALT/AST was increased.
I begin with feburic 80 and just after 1 moth reached the 3.5 UA.
And of course I got gout attack on my elbow which is new area for me.
I asked my doc reduce feburic from 80 to 40 – however this tablet on my country exists only by 80.
What is the risk of low UA ?
What is recommendation on that ? As I understand I can not cut the tablet since it covered tablet – and not recommended for split.
Should I take tablet Day/yes Day/no ( in that case I will reached 40 per day, )
Thanks in advance,
