I've just started taking colchicine. My doctor told me to take it for 7 days untl the systoms of gout have gone. Then statr on a course of alloputinol. I understand all about the possible side effects of colochcine and I am prepared for them. My question is, if after 7 days should I start taking Allopurinol even if there is still evidence of gout. The gout is quite mild but it has lingered for some time since the main attack approx 6 to 8 weeks ago.
I have only had 2 major attacks of gout before now and they have cleared up reasonably quickly.
