Our expert says:
Puricos is usually prescribed to lower uric acid levels in the blood which can cause gouty arthritis- this does not affect the shoulders and hips. If you have not been referred to a rheumatologist, I suggest you see one as you may need other drugs like non-steroidal anti inflammatories.
