... right big toe became very painful. last night my left big toe woke me up from the pain. can a person's body create a resistance to allopurinol?
Hi, joint and muscle pain are listed as side effects of taking Allopurinal, but considering the length of time you have been taking the medication, it would be unusual (but not impossible) to develop these symptoms now. It is possible to build a high tolerance/resistance to most medications, so i think it is also possible with Allopurinal. You really need to contact your doctor to discuss this.
