    This drug works for gout sufferers IF you are taking the right amount. The problem is that most Dr.s do not well understand gout or allopurinol and therefore start patients on dose that is to low to be effective. And, do not start allopurinol in the midst of a gout attack. Doing this just makes it worst. I have been there. The dose required for most people is 200 mg minimum. I take 300 because I ...

    I've had gout for 10 years. I have been taking 100mgs on and off for the past couple years. Gout came back because the doctor said I was not consistent. I got bumped up to 300mgs and since then ive gotten a gas problem, itchy skin, rash, and bloody stool. I'm writing this review because I think I'm dying on the inside.

    I've been taking Allopurinal for past 4 months. I've experienced gout almost monthly since. When one flare up starts to resolve, a new one begins. I prefer colchicine for gout control.
