From this study (2 months ago):
I had been taking Vicodin for over a year. My dx is chronic thoracic back pain. Stenosis with foraminal encroachment. Built up resistance so they put me on Gabapentin. Bad choice, put severe lesions all over my back. So now I have been on 15mg morphine bid.for one week. I end up in the ER for severe Gout. Never had gout in my life. All of my blood tests were normal. And - my uric acid was normal. Sounds like I had an adverse reaction to the Gabapentin and the Morphine. Your thoughts and comments will be greatly appreciated.

Post-treatment symptom is gout, not experienced during 48 weeks on HCV triple drug therapy, but has been very uncomfortable since stopping treatment. Any ideas? Thanks.

Prednisone is the standard treatment for gout.
From this study (3 months ago):
My Dad was on allpurinol for gout for years. He was put on Pradaxa 2-5 years ago.
He has had excruciating swelling and inflammation in feet. It starts about 6 p.m. at night. It affects his sleep. Doctors have given him hydrocodone for the pain.
I believe it is gout. He stopped taking it about the same time he was put on Pradaxa. I want him to go back on the gout medicine.
