    I am on the new medicine Uloric 40mg. I started this as well as received a steriod shot from my doctor. My gout felt better, but then I ran out of medicine for 7 days. My doctor said I can not get another steriod shot for 6 weeks (I have had 2 over 1 month). I started the Uloric again 3 days ago, but my gout is now worse than it's ever been. My job requires me to stand on my feet for 8 hours; which I obviously cannot do.  Is there any other help anyone knows of? How long does a gout attack last?



    A gout attack can last a couple days or a couple weeks.

    NEVER go on and off uloric or allopurinol…both are a lifetime's commitment.

    CALL YOUR DOCTOR…have him call in a prescriton for 30 or 60 cochicine tabs… Fill it immediately and take 2 tabs. Take an additional one every hour until you have taken 16, the pain stops, or the diarrhea becomes intolerable. It usually works seemingly  miraculously well. If your doctor won't do it for you tell him he's fired.

    This will end your acute attack but NOT your gout…that's what the Uloric or allopurinol is for.

    Good luck with a quick pain stoppage!
