Why not Colcrys only for gout instead of Allopurinol side effect?

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?
They do two different things. So you need both of them. Allopurinol can cause sore throat, which can lead to difficulty swallowing.
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.
