Are you sure it is gout?
Do not take the allopurinol as it may prolong the acute attack of gout.
The indomethacin will treat the pain symptoms. The usual dose for gout is 1 to 2 capsules twice daily, with food. It only needs to be taken while he has the gout symptoms.
You should see a doctor if his symptoms worsen or he has another attack of gout in the near future.
