The idea of only taking allopurinol “as required” is new to me and goes against everything I’ve learned so far. But I’m always willing to learn more.

However, I’d need a lot more information before I was convinced of the validity of this approach. For example, full medical history including uric acid test results, additional tests for uric acid excretion rate, height and weight (with significant weight change history) and diet details during non-allopurinol and allopurinol phases.

I’d like to say more. But I’ll wait to see if there is any input from other readers first, as this is an old question.
