Thank you both nobody & Keith!

Since starting Allopurinol in March my husband had just 1 minor gout flare up which subsided in about 1 day. And I can see that the once swollen big toe part is now slowly shrinking. I think Allopurinol is clearly working in lowering the uric acid.

As his latest reading is 0.252, I think we will keep on taking Allopurinol 300mg for 2 more months & do another test. Since the result is really encouraging & there is one point that keep us hesitant in increasing the dosage is because my husband is having tinnitus since starting Allopurinol. Of course all the readings & even dr. said the medicine is the not cause, but we don’t know … 😕
