Brief Answer:
You should try other drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

You should than do not come back to this drug. For gout relief Colchicine is a very good drug. Allopurinol can be used as well. You should consult your doctor about this medicines as both are prescription only.

Hope this helps.
