Suggest treatment for gout
Have you ever taken allopurinol?
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sort to hear about this gout and the pains that you have reported, Gout is not typically managed with steroids unless there is another disease condition. The main drug in managing gout is allopurinol which decreases the amount of uric acid produced in the body. This develop reduces uric acid buildup and symptoms of gout.
The best drug for immediate gout pain relief is indomethacin. It is taken at doses of 50mg 3times daily for acute pains. I will suggest that you ask your doctor about this if he has never considered using this.
In addition to drugs, avoid excess consumption of red meats this is a major contributor to uric acid production. If you have a script of your results that were used to diagnose gout, I will like to review them and offer a second and independent opinion.
However, lovastatin can be a serious cause of muscle pain. I will like you to ask your doctor i this isn’t a major contributor to your pain and needs to be reviewed.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
