Aloprim review by 62 year old male patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   gout
Dosage & duration:   300 mg taken 1xper day for the period of 4 years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
Reported Results
Benefits:   I would get painful swelling in my feet. I could not even stand the bed sheet to touch my feet. One time while on vacation I was swollen up to my knees. The medication makes my life easier. I don't have to worry that when I wake up I won't be able to walk around my house. I rarely have any slight indication that the gout is going to be a problem.
Side effects:   None that I have noticed. I used to have painful swelling regularly and now I don't.
Comments:   I just take one pill per day. I take it every day as a prevention. I think it controls the uric acid my body produces too much of that causes the fluid retention and the swelling.
