I have taken it for a week and stopped because I saw no results. But, the pain in the big toe is waking me from sleep throbbing so, I started taking it again 3 days ago. I am on 100mg. I didn't realize it takes weeks before you get any results.

It works well for me. I have had 0 gout attacks since going on the medication 6 months ago. I am concerned about the side effects.

On Uloric 'successfully' for about 6 mos. Love it EXCEPT my Dr noticed my CKD blood tests increasing in bad #'s. Uric acid is drastically down, no flares, but experiencing severe muscle pain in lower legs. It's like a cramp or severe stiffness in calfs as if I had worked out a lot. Walk like Frankinstein as legs are so stiff. I'm quitting another statin drug first for 2 weeks to see if that eliminates problem. If it doesn't the plan is to go off Uloric 2 weeks or more to see if stiffness goes away. I hope so. If not will have to go back to allopurinol and indo as needed.

Daily dose of 80mg Uloric + 0.6mg Colcrys has given me 2 years of Gout free living. The accumulation of tophi on my elbow and knuckles have almost disappeared. I no longer worry about eating the wrong foods.

I have very few gout attacks and most attacks are mild. I do not take any other gout medicine on a regular basis for gout. Before I was having at least one attack monthly lasting 2-3 days.
