Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Stopped taking Lovaza and now the irregular heart beats are not present
From this study (2 months ago):
Six weeks on 300 mg once daily of allopurinol for gout taken at night.
Suffering abnormal fatigue that is making work more challenging.
Considering asking doctor to switch to Uloric as an alternative due to fatigue symptoms.
From this study (3 months ago):
I started taking this medication and 6 days later I thought I had a fast and furious bladder issue or urethra issue. Since it was a Sunday night, I called the pharmacist and asked about bladder/urethra side effects. He said there weren't any such side effects. t had a urine test done on day 7 and blood and high white cell count found in urine. I was put on an anti-biotic and the urine was sent to a lab to confirm infection, but the results were negative.
The antibiotic seemed to help, but not completely, so I am confused.
I googled until I found this one study that show that others have had this problem and there is a correlation. I will stop taking this medication starting tomorrow. Tonight was day 12.
I want more information on this.
