    Hi, I'm wanted to know if your husband had to take anything else.
    Dr. has me on :
    1. Allopurinol 300mg 1 a day
    2.Indocin .25mg 3x a day

    This has not helped out at all along with my fibro meds.I can barley type . i still can't close my hands all the way . My hands are constantly sowellen and ache all the time. I can hardley hold a fork much less a glass . any info. would surely be appericated. Thanks in advance. Chewies mom.

    Hey,


    He takes 300mg allopurinol 1xday and nothing else. He was given a different rx at first to bring his uric acid
    levels into the normal range. Since that time (about 2yrs. ago) it has remaimed normal with the daily use of allopurinol. He could never tolerate the indocin, it killed his stomach. I'm sorry I don't recall the name of the first rx he was given. I hope you can find some pain free moments gout is awful.
