Some interesting discussion about this lately. I found this site over three years ago after suffering with Gout for years.

Luckily I have a good doctor and was able to get on 300mg Allopurinol that I have been taking since then. I don’t know why some fear taking this miracle drug, while at the same time be OK with popping vitamins daily. It is very clean with no side effects for most. I can eat and drink whatever I want and have never had a flair up since I started.

I get a yearly blood test and my uric acid is always below 5. Kidney and liver normal.
I am now going to try and lower the dose while watching my levels.

My doctor says I am simply an over-producer of uric acid.
