Stop taking Uloric after three days since blood test shows Uric Acid levels were at 4.2. After I am off Uloric the next day I get this dizziness now for two days.
I stop taking Diovan that first morning to see if that drug was causing low blood pressure. Blood pressure is normal 123/64 in the morning in sitting position.
dizziness started approx one month after commencing uloric along with anxiety
