Gout Overview

Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe)[3] is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint.

Allopurinol 100 mg tablets not available
My local dispensers tell me 100 mg tablets are no longer available from any manufacturer, even though the 300 mg tablets are still available. Does anyone know anything about this? ## My husband just had bunion surgery this morning and the doctor informed us he also found gout when the toe was opened however, you say your local dispensers tell you that 100 mg tables are not longer available but I had to pick up a RX for him when he left the hospital and it was for Allopurinol 100mg. We got it filled at a wal-greens pharmacy

lactic acid gout
osteoarthritis pain from lactic acid ## Hello, Jules! How are you? What condition are you asking about? It seems you're confusing several. Osteoarthritis is completely different from gout and the latter would involved uric acid. What have you been diagnosed with? NSAIDs can be used to treat osteoarthritis, unless one's health prohibits such, but gout often requires something to reduce the uric acid.

mavidol ketorolaco
Is this med. Good for gout ## Hello, Patricia! How are you? Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it may help with the pain and swelling of gout, but it will not treat the underlying issue of excess uric acid that causes it. Side effect may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Allopurinol should give cancer
Since uric acid is considered an antioxidant that lowers the occurrence of free radicals one could assume that uric acid decreasing substances like Allopurinol should increase cancer incidence? Has anyone done any studies? Are there any databases to look for any correlation? If Allopurinol does not give cancer then the only argument against keeping the current level of uric acid in blood is invalidated.
