I'm cool with that CT, whatever works for you is better than the pain.

I know the whole water thing seems obvious. But on the few occasions I've felt an attack coming on, simply drinking more cherry juice has stopped it immediately. I'm obviously not an expert but if you suffer from gout you should be drinking more water and cherry juice. My advice is to take the other supplements I've mentioned as they have completely changed my life.

**Losing weight also helps, along with drinking more water.**

Probably more to do with these two moves...?
Never known anything truly stop it dead bar the light green Etoricoxib.

Apart from trapped in the car following an RTA, it's the worst pain I've experienced. They say childbirth is worse, but women wait a year and want to do it again. I've yet to meet anyone who has had a proper helping of gout and wanted it again.

OneMac: BMI of 26... you should be running through walls mate, not getting gout lol. :-)

Re: Gout
Was getting it quite regularly a few years ago and then started taking a few supplements from Holland and Barrett and haven't had an attack since.

They're Bromelain, Quercetin with vitamin C and celery seed tablets. Take them with either cherry juice or black cherry extract tablets. Not cheap (I bulk buy during their sales) but well worth it.

Losing weight also helps, along with drinking more water.

Re: Gout
I'm in the same boat with arcoxia , used to be on one a day so had a repeat script every 60 days . Since then got told to reduce to 'as and when' so it's 2/3 a month hence loads left over .

I tend to dole them out at work as they are fantastic with hangovers and general sprains knocks etc.

Re: Gout
I'm prescribed 300mg per day, but they're 3x100mg tablets. After not having an attack for a couple of years, the doc said I should go down to 100mg a day, but they keep furnishing me with 3 times too much, despite me asking them not to. (I get 4 items prescribed every 2 months).
So if anyone's interested, I've probably got about 1000 Allopurinol knocking about.

Re: Gout
Luke - I didn't prescribe them myself? My GP did. Took 100 for 6 weeks then a blood test to see the levels. Anyway that pattern carried on to 200, 300 and 400 which is when he said we'll stick. Never had an attack since. Only annoying thing is it's 2 tablets!

I also have the Arcoxia (Green triangle) things too.

BMI is 26

Re: Gout
Hang onto them Joe, most GPs won't prescribe them now unless there's no alternative. You've got the light green triangular ones, yeah?

Re: Gout
I have about 90 , 90mg Arcoxia tablets if anyone wants a few.

Get them for my back.

Re: Gout

GMC guideline (unless there are some serious 'other reasons' why you would need so much of it) is 100mg daily max. If a high daily dosage is picked up on review, the prescribing doc could find him or herself challenged on it.

100mg and dietary controls - you are looking to avoid the PURINES, and it's not necessarily the old favourites that are the problem. Lots of folk are triggered badly by stuff like gravy, mushrooms, prawns / shellfish, even bread etc.

The talk is BMI of 25 or less, very hard to do if you're a fat boy by design. Generally, you'll get lucky up to 31 BMI, but much over that and gout risk rises rapidly.

Drink plenty of water, 1.5 - 2 lires daily. And get your kidneys checked (blood tests) and blood pressure checked. High BP can fuck your kidneys, and the gout etc can all be follow ons from that.

Happy New Year, then... ;-)

300mg - fuck me that's a lot per day... you usually find the very old on that sort of dosage...

The ONLY thing that STOPS an attack (not 'prevents', stops) is Etoricoxib (aka Arcoxia). Little light green triangular babies, anything from 30g - 90g three consecurive days. Wallop, gone.

Unfortunately, you'll have a mother of a job getting it scripted, as it's on what we call the 'red list'. Does that mean it's dangerous? No, you don't take it for long enough to be dangerous. What it is is fucking expensive... hence... ah well, you know the rest...
