    First let me say I am a 39 year old male who exercises and tryâ??s to stay as healthy as a happy person can. I am a carpenter and am on my feet all day long, relying on all my lower body muscles for balance and movement. I had my first gout attack five years ago. Attacks usually only lasting a couple of days and are manageable. I am going on a four week debilitating attack now. My podiatrist ... Show Full Comment

    My last gout attack of big toe was a year ago. Took this drug for a week, but it only kept me from feeling worse. Now on Indomethacin that provided relief within 6 hours. Swelling still needs to go down, but can at least get a sock on now. Only side effect was manageable diarrhea. My diet avoids the gouty foods.

    At 65, I was stunned to develop gout. The swelling in both feet demanded a trip to medical professional, ended up with a visit to a podiatrist. The swelling has subsided. The issue is diarrhea and it is intense. So there is a plus and minus on this med that may have affect other consumers and they should have each have notice about this reality. I am still in a suit in flip flops going to cour ... Show Full Comment

    I am 72 yrs old, with chronic gout. I have been on this medication for about two years, and without it I would be somewhere in a locked room lost without enough strength to even pull out my hair during my gout attacks. My doctor prescribed this medication to me after all other meds failed. I take one 0.6 mg tablet every morning, and when I feel soreness in my toe or ankles I take one table at n ...
