Hello, I'm being treated for lymphomia w/rituxan for the next two years. I have noticed after the first two treatments that my gout has flared up even though I've been on allopurinol for several years. Up to this point, the allopurinol has been very effective. Are there studies noting a counter indication or adverse reaction between these two drugs? Specifically; is the effectiveness of allopurinol lowed when taken in conjunction with Rituxan?
I take meloxicam for knee pain after having nuermous knee realingments and surgeries over the last 8 years. I take 15mg tablet daily.

I felt fuzzy and could not focus. This lasted for about 3 hours. It passed after that time and i feel fine again but i will be sticking to cold sore creams from now on.
