Customer Question
Just checking on the...

Just checking on the best time of day is best for my one-300MG Allopurinol.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

The only symptoms seem to be the terrible gout attacks I get, the the Doctor gives me Colchicine as well. But, Allopurinol is my daily medication.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No allergies, I take (are you ready) Metoprolol, Eplerenone, Benazepril, Gabapentin, Lovastatin, and more.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Am 75, have had five surgeries on back and neck, heart attack and quadrupal bypass, have heart failure, have bad peripheral neuropothy.

Any time of day as long as it is at the same time.

The single dose is based on the idea that the next dose occurs at 24 hours.

Beyond this, there is a matter of convenience, when do you take most of your other meds?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
