Further to my original post, with regards to colchinine and allopurinol.
Took my first colchicine 10 days ago and took 4 a day for 3 days, then 2 a day for 4 days and 1 a day for the last 2 days. I have now stopped taking them.
After 4 days I started taking allopurinol at the stated dose of 1 a day.
I have not experienced any bad side effects that I expected with regards to the colchicine and the allopurinol has not induced another attack of gout, up to the point of writing and after just taking my 9th tablet.
Approximately 14 days before I finish the 56 100gm tablets of allopurinol I will have a full blood test taken and reviewed with my doctor to decide if I need to upgrade the allopurinol.
Hopefully by that time I may have got a result!
P.S. Could anyone enlighten me with what exactly Pseudogout IS?
