    Don't remember having a problem with indigestion when I was started on three 100 mg a day. Now taking one 300 mg a day and experiencing problems with indigestion -- so much so that I may ask to be put back on the 100 mg. dose.

    I have breast tenderness after taking Allopurinol (100mg) for 2-3 weeks.
    I am now 3 months into the treatment (having increased dosage to 200mg after 6 weeks) and the breast tenderness has got progressively worse.
    Having a scan tomorrow

    Has anyone experienced these symptoms. Do they eventually disappear

  • started taking Allopurinol around 10 years ago for...

    started taking Allopurinol around 10 years ago for gout. Soon after began pain in lower legs and doctor did test for clots. Negative. I lowered dosage to 1/2 and again later to 1/4 and was able to remain pain free with uric acid levels below gout levels.

    2 weeks ago went to hospital with severe clots in lungs. had emergency procedure to break up clots and am now on thinners. I suspect Allopurinol.
    Doctors are still looking for cause. I have reduced dosage further to 1/4 every other day. Will check uric acid levels every month. unless a cause is found for clots, will be on thinners from now on.
