Hi,thanks for query.Multiple joint pains along with swelling points towards 2 possibilities,one is gout and another one rheumatoid arthritis.Allopurinol is for gout,if he is tested and had high uric acid,this tablet is fine.When ever pain is more ,he can take some analgesic as per need basis.In some cases some dietary restriction are advised then you can discuss with your doctor.bye.
