Yesterday afternoon, I took four tablets (over a period of time (as instructed by doctor). Very early this morning, I began severe diarrhea which has continued to present (mid morning). Don't know what to expect when I try to eat something. Medicatioin did not seem to help the problem for which it was prescribed.

Comment:
The medication did reduce the pain of gout, but the side effects have included diarrhea and sore stomach, and I had an episode of terrible pains in my hips and calves while out walking today ( which I suspect may have been brought on by the medication). So I think I'm giving up on this drug.

Initially pain from gout decreased. After about 2 months, I stopped taking it and all symptoms of gout disappeared. This is a very expensive drug- $165 for 30 days. I don't intend to ever take it again,

Comment:
This medication works great causing my pain to go away completely in 3 days. However, it requires a prescription and costs over $100 for 30 very tiny pills I only take this for 3 days and then stop taking it cause I have heard that it has bad side effects.
