    Allopurinol for High blood pressure

    Due to the kidney insufficiency, I have more headache (thrusts come daily) nausea, dizzy spells. Much to the toilet. Also at night . One is very often tired, slack, exhausted during the day. Due to the water in my legs (both lower legs) I can not go far. It is very exhausting and your legs hurt a lot. Shrivel kidney left, right is only half kidney still in power. Further degrading. After the name of my doctor, the value was minus 3 until one week ago. Now the value is heading for the 4. (Little shrimp wise) worse.

    Side effects: Fatigue; Headache; Dizziness

    Allopurinol for Hyperuricemia

    Allopurinol is supposed to work slowly, so I can not say anything about faster improvement. After a few days, however, the joint pain disappeared and did not reappear. The side effects are, however, strong: The doctor first prescribed 300mg / day, I could not hold out for more than 5 days (tried several times), because of the ever-increasing dizziness and overall feeling as the next day after a long binge drinking: Maul stomach, word-finding problems, Concentration difficulties, slight headache (but still tolerable). The symptoms prohibit actually after three days of driving. I then switched to the 100mg tablets and quartered them to minimize the side effects. I still feel it, but keep it at a tolerable level. The joint pain can be dampened by this, but not as completely prevented as with the higher doses. So I have to pay close attention to my diet to avoid the joint pain and it raises the question of whether the low success with allopurinol counteracts the side effects.

    Side effects: Headache; Dizziness
