I need to add that I was in allopurinol for 4 mths and blood work had dropped from 9.6 to 6.9., but dr. Still switched me to me to me to uloric. I’ve not seen this medicine mentioned in any posts and would like to know if anybody else knows anything about it.
I watched a Rheumatologist speak to a small group of people online (got it from googling something about gout). He was very good and thorough and mentioned that uloric would be his preferred treatment but because allopurinol is much cheaper, insurance companies would only pay for allopurinol.
