Are Rustor,allopurinol and aspirin the correct medicines for high BP and cholesterol with knee and neck pain ?
My 40 y/o old husband is having neck & knee pains for 3 days already.. right now his knees started to swell. He is taking Rustor for cholesterol . 100 mg allopurinol once daily, and 600mg aspirin 4x daily.. he s bp lately is 140/90 to 149/94 . is he taking the right meds.... ? what is his condition?
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.

Yes, I have was taking 100 mg of allopurinol and 0.6 colcrys to control my uric acid. When I saw the dr 2 weeks ago my uric acid was even higher. Seems high levels of uric acid runs in my family. The Dr wanted me to stop Colcrys and continue taking allopurinol but to increase it to 2x a day. Well, within a week I have an acute attack of gout. The dr then prescribed preisone and to go back on colcrys and continue w/allopurinol 2x a day. Things never calmed down and the gout got worse once the presone was stopped. This week the Dr prescribed MethyIPREDNISolone tablets 4 mg the swelling is gradually going away. No swelling in the morning and able to finally put my foot down again but the swelling in now on top of the foot and purple and the ankle is swollen. Going to see a foot doctor tomorrow to see if I need a boot put on the my foot to keep the pressure off of it for a while. I am so worried that once the MethyIPREDNISolone Table stop on Friday the Gout will return. Should I be increase the Allopuriol to 3 a day and does it cause weight loss and contine on with colcys?
I have gout, I just got over a 10 week flare up. I tried allopurinol and had a terrible reaction, rash, headache muscle aches.I am now drinking cherry juice every day. I just had baby back ribs, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots with a baked potato. Now I am worried I will have another flare up. What should I do to prevent this from happening? Thanks
