I had one relatively minor attack just over three years ago. My UA was quite high at the time (9). About two months later I had a second relatively minor flare up. Three months after my first attack I want on 100mg of allopurinol per day. I change my diet quite radically went off alcohol for 18 months. Gradually, over the past 18 months I have started introducing high purine containing foods and alcohol into my diet. My diet is now completely normal. I can drink alcohol or eat a steak without an issue and it has been like this for some time. There does not appear to be an issue. I took the Allopurinol daily without fail until about 2 to 3 months ago. Now I take the one pill 2 or 3 times per week. Is this a good or a bad idea? I am not seeing any adverse reaction. Very occasionally I do have slight tingling in my toes but not stiffness. Really I have never had another attack since the first one three years ago. Not sure whether I stay on 2 to 3 pills per week or to stop taking Allopurinol completely....
