    Significant relief of severe gout foot pain within 2-3 hours of taking (1) 50mg capsule. I also experienced dizziness for about first 2 hours and allot sweating. First time taking this med for gout. If you take this I would not plan on doing anything for first 2-3 hours, was difficult for me to work.

    Does not work for me. Pain and swelling still persistent. The dizziness and high blood pressure caused by it make it a no go for me. Taken after a meal with lots of water and I get dizzy within 10 minutes. Caused blood pressure to go up 20 points.

    I tried with just water and did not work well for me. I was dizzy and did not feel well. I tried with food / meal and has changed my gout pain by 70-80%. have not had any of side effects since I took with food. I changed jobs and had to be on my feet 6-8 hrs a day. On take as needed but have found 1 pill taken 2-3 hrs into shift works for me.

    Not a drug that you can take prior to exercise to avoid gout. It makes me, a 200 lb male; loopy to the point of having trouble staying upright, and then sleepy on the 50 mg tablet. Taken at bedtime is likely a much better suggestion.

    I find that it can take up to 8 hours to relieve an attack. I think you have to accept it is no quick fix. Relieving the symptoms by chilling the area affected helps until then. It has no effect on the leukocytes that are causing the inflammatory response (and subsequent pain) already in the bloodstream. It does make me a bit dizzy for a short time, but that is a small price to pay for the eventu ... Show Full Comment
