I was on Allopurinol 400mg/day for about four months. The uric acid level has come down to 2.8. My doctor advised me to continue with 100mg/day. It may be noted that I had no related problem. What put me in dilemma is when having casual discussion with another doctor I was advised against taking Allopurinol. Asper his openion Allopurinol should not be prescribed until the level touches 10 mark or there is no related problem. I would like to state that initially my uric acid level was 8.9. Can you help me to clear this dilemma?
I have another quiry i.e. whether Allopurinol has any serious adverse effect[?] Thanks..[/size=2][/size=3]
