    Uloric has saved my life.  i was in so much gout and arthritis pain.  i have been taking this new drug for about 1 month and have not had one flare up.  i used to have at least one flare up a week.  the only thing i have changed is the medication. 


    That's good, but it is not a painkiller, it is meant for lowering uric acid.

    Have you had a blood test to ensure that it is keeping your uric acid level below 6mg/dL? If not, then it is just a waste of time.


    Just had a meeting with my doc to talk about my progress with Uloric.  My URIC acid was at 6!  This was after approx 4 months of 80mg.  I have tophus in various locations and a very large one on my knee is gone.  My doctor is excited and so am I.


    Forgot to mention in my previous post that my URIC acid was in the 8 to 10 range for more then 20 years.


    Exciting progress indeed, Mr Tophus – do I sense a change of name in the offing?
