It is true that your blood pressure medication will cause raised uric acid levels but your blood pressure medication is more important than the discomfort that you are experiencing. I suggest that you continue with your Puricos to control the raised uric acid levels and that you add Prednisone in the accute phase of the pain. This will take the pain away substancially quicker than the Puricos.
