Unfortunately, I am not familiar with these products. Ask your pharmacist, as he/she will be able to advise.

Please remember that gout is treatable. Your father should consult a doctor for blood tests, in order to get a baseline reading of his gout. His doctor will be able to give him a script for a product like Puricos. Acute attacks can be treated with anti-inflammatory medication, cortico-steroids and Colchicine. Also note that he also has to follow a strict diet to control his gout, as the medication will not have the desired effect if he defaults on his diet. Ask a dietrician for advice.

my husband bought Goutezol at a Clicks pharmacy in Bloemfontein. It does not help him. The presribed medicine and diet helps a lot
