I'm 49 and I've been on blood pressure tablets for years, Ramipril Amlodipine Bendroflumethiazide and doxazosin. I stopped taking the doxazosin after fainting episodes. Recently I was diagnosed with Gout through symptoms and blood tests. I had a course of colchicine but it didn't improve matters. My GP is thinking that the bendroflumethiazide may be the cause of my raised urates so I have been asked to stop taking the bendro and will have a blood test in 2 weeks to see if it lowers the urates. Tomorrow I will stop taking the Amlodipine because my ankles and legs have swollen already. I'm curious as to what alternative drug treatments there are if the bendro is the cause of the gout?
