Had gout ever since I was 18. Got worst over the years to where I would get flare ups every two weeks. I was on convention drugs such as Allopurinol, colchicine, etc... but those did little for me.

Comment:
For years, every doctor said ther was no hope for me and now I am a new man. The infusions are far from home and consume half a day every two weeks, but the result has been life altering -- definitely worth the effort. Thank you Savient, for providing this relief from decades of suffering.
