Our expert says:
Gout is a disease caused by high uric acid levels causing inflammation in the joints. Any quick increase OR decrease in the levels can cause a "flare", causing acute pain. The Puricos probably made the uric acid levels fall too fast, therefor the painful episodes. If you have been taking the 300 mg Puricos, try lowering the dose to 200 or 100 mg ( 1 or 2 of the 100 mg tablets) per day and use it with Neurofen (or Ranfen) 200mg three times per day if you are not allergic to or have any reason you are not allowed to take anti-inflammatory medications. Then one can gradually increase the dose if needed.
