regularly, I was less likely to get gout. I have been taking Uloric for 3 months now. I gave blood when I first went on it and again last week. After each time I experienced a gout attack. Apparently the Uloric releases uric acid build us that have been hiding in the body and it takes awhile to clean all that out. Does the giving of blood while on Uloric somehow release hidden uric acid in the body?
