    Hi guys it's been a while since i've been on here. I'm in between doctors right now and i've ran out of my currant script of Allo.  I found a bottle thats a couple of years old. It says discards after 09. Now i'm wondering if this will still be good. The last thing I need is an attack what do you guys think. Is it worth the risk?

    Discard dates are a great way to make money. Take what is left in the bottle, then get more tomorrow.

    If you can be irresponsible with your gout treatment, I can be more so.

    I have more on the way but its mail order. So I won't get it for a few days. I've been taking Allo every day for 18 months till my insurance ran out. And I still haven't ran out I was asking a simple question. Rather the old stuff would still be good to take till my order gets here? I wasn't really looking for a lecture from anyone. I've seen where Zip has said he taken Colchicine that was over 10 years old. And I don't recall you saying he was irresponsible. Thanks for the help :-(

    Yeah, I should have stopped after the first sentence, but the boredom factor makes me try to be funny. Was there no clue in the last sentence?

    My head tells me it aint funny, but my heart says at least try, because otherwise I'd have to close this website.

    What IS funny is you thinking 3 lines from me is a lecture.

    What drugs are they giving you for your rehabilitation Keith? (& are they available in Boots?) your sense of humour gradient has been off the scale lately. More please :-)

    All I really wanted was to know if these would still do the job?

    Suck 'em and see. Pretty sure they won't do any harm.

    No! Wetherspoons (other bars are available).

    I'm giving them a try. I just thought since this is listed as a support forum on a site that's suppose to be all about informing people about gout. I could ask a question. And get a simple answer. Instead of being looked down on like an idiot. I haven't been on here for a while it use to be a friendly place to visit read and learn. Not so sure anymore.
