Yes thats fine .

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir ,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query I can tell you that dose can be reduced according to uric acid levels if they are under control . But I would advise you to repeat the uric acid level after 6-8 weeks if its controlled on 40 mg dose you can continue on the same , if its not dose can be readjusted .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
