If joint is inflamed then arcoxia is better. It will decrease swelling quickly. Zyloric is safe if taken for long time. Patients who are having problem with zyloric are given fabuxostat . You can consult to your doctor for both drugs. There is also role of food modification like avoiding of pulses, vegetables with seeds and red meat.
