    I know you pee uric acid out naturally, but being on Allopurinol or any other ucic acid lowering medication. Does the medication make you poop it out or pee it out? Or does the drug and it’s waste just stay in your blood stream. I know allopurinol cause a sympton having too much in your system. I also want to know how long it stays working or not working in your system once you and your doctor decide to get off it. Thanks!

    You seem to be rather confused about a number of things concerning how the human body & Allopurinol works, which is not surprising because it’s quite complicated, especially if you don’t have a science/biology background. You don’t really need to know most of it, but one thing YOU MUST BE CLEAR ABOUT is if you don’t want gout to return YOU DO NOT STOP TAKING IT – EVER!
    It is not a cure, as in you don’t have gout anymore. It just prevents attacks from occurring by keeping your uric acid level low. If you stop, uric acid will rise & you will eventually get gout again.
