It is very expensive for it not to work for me. I am on 2 types of insulin and the cost of all three throw me into the "donut hole" by the end of May. My last blood work showed my Uric Acid up to 10. Basically I am better off not taking this drug. zu5wlx

On Uloric 'successfully' for about 6 mos. Love it EXCEPT my Dr noticed my CKD blood tests increasing in bad #'s. Uric acid is drastically down, no flares, but experiencing severe muscle pain in lower legs. It's like a cramp or severe stiffness in calfs as if I had worked out a lot. Walk like Frankinstein as legs are so stiff. I'm quitting another statin drug first for 2 week ... Show Full Comment

Daily dose of 80mg Uloric + 0.6mg Colcrys has given me 2 years of Gout free living. The accumulation of tophi on my elbow and knuckles have almost disappeared. I no longer worry about eating the wrong foods.
