    I love the commercials for stupid stuff like girl part pains....This little pill will treat the symptoms of your discomfort, but the side effects could be Diarrhea, nausea, upset stomach, nose bleeds, rectal leakage, poorly painted fingernails,yeast infections, multiple personality syndrome, excessive sweating, having sex with ugly people, hair loss, heart attack and possibly death.

    Really?....How stupid is society now? I remember this stuff called...tylenol

    A few years back I was attacked by my genes by what is called gout. there has been a increase of it showing up in the last 10 years. Until then the industry has looked the other way, and has done nothing for it. Worse case scenario your kidneys shutdown and you die. Most drugs that are out there is not really helpful. It is thought that diet plays a big portion of the problem. It is a very weird one to have. No yeast, no beef, pork, some fish is a no no too. Not supposed to eat asparagus, spinach. There is more misinformation about this disease than any other one I have read about.

    lay off fatty foods and organ meats . i do believe it is a build up of uric acid in the joints.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Used to give out allopurinol and advice on diet modification. Just for amusement looked up when it was started on the market. Allopurinol started on the market August 19,1966.

    Genetics (our inherited genes), gender, and nutrition (alcoholism, obesity) play key roles in the development of gout. Gout is not contagious.

    If your parents have gout, then you have a 20% chance of developing it.

    British people are five times more likely to develop gout.

    American blacks, but not African blacks, are more likely to have gout than other populations.

    Intake of alcoholic beverages, especially beer, increases the risk for gout.

    Diets rich in red meats, internal organs, yeast, and oily fish increase the risk for gout.

    Uric acid levels increase at puberty in men and at menopause in women, so men first develop gout at an earlier age (after puberty) than do women (after menopause). Gout in premenopausal women is distinctly unusual.

    Attacks of gouty arthritis can be precipitated when there is a sudden change in uric acid levels, which may be caused by

    overindulgence in alcohol and red meats,

    trauma,

    starvation and dehydration,

    IV contrast dyes,

    chemotherapy,

    medications,

    diuretics and some other anti-hypertensive medications,

    aspirin (Bayer, Ecotrin),

    nicotinic acid (B-3-50, B3-500-Gr, Niacin SR, Niacor, Niaspan ER, Slo-Niacin),

    cyclosporin A,

    allopurinol (Zyloprim) and probenecid (Benemid),

    others.

    For fatty foods and organ meats yes. But that isn't all like I said it is ranged all around. All alcohol except red wine is frowned on exp. beer.

    Most meds now new and old just treat the after problem of the build up and is used more in the consideration of a flareup. I will have to find my notes to give examples. Like I said there is more misinformation about gout than information.

    Most of the new gout drugs are because of the out break in flareups. Just a quick look up, have read more in the New England Journal of Medicine.
