Girl has Allopurinol hallucinations
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
For me, I had every side effect in the book from allopurinol. Hallucinations, heart palpitations, blurry vision, all kinds of weird stuff. I was like a zombie. So, I take colchicine .6mg x 2 at onset with 1000 mg of tylenol. And then repeat one more time if needed. The most important thing you can do for yourself for a gout attack is rest. This way your body can put a new outer layer over the crystals and the attack will subside.
My doc advised me to eat no, none, zip red meat or alcohol. Not even wine. Since I have done that, my attacks have subsided greatly. Red meat really does it for me. Within 12 hours I can start to feel the gout. Also, I don't have typical kidney disease (no high blood pressure, no salt restriction). Mine is from scar tissue from surgery when I was a little girl. So, I am able to stay very hydrated. But, if I slip up - gout kicks in.
I know this is long, but I was in so much pain for so many years. My gout spread to nearly every joint in my body. If I can spare anyone the pain and agony and the uncertainty of which med to take, I will have felt I have done a great service
