Allopurinol causing sore throat, difficulty swallowing - only side effect so far. Can we treat side effect? Is it caused by swallowing pill? Or due to medication in the body? Or allergic reaction? Can I just take colcrys everyday and no allopurinol?
All of these medications cause side effects. You have to weigh your options. I started taking allopurinol about two years go and luckily I'm not having anymore attacks. Only now and then I'll feel a little twitch which goes right away.
