Question: What can i take for gout if i'm on xarelto

Asked by James on Sep, 30, 2013 at 10:56 pm:

Who:
Age: 58   Gender: male
Conditions: Diabetes, Gout
Medications: Metformin

Details:
I have been on xarelto for 2 months after having a pulmonary embolism. But i have had an attack of gout since that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I discovered that both voltaren and celebrex which I have taken for gout in the past are not to be taken while on xarelto. So i desperately need to find something to relieve the pain that wont cause a problem with the xarelto. Help!!!

You'll have to tell your doctor. He/she may tell you to stop the xarelto and start 800mg ibuprofen every four to 8 hours for the inflammation and pain along with colchicine, which also will help with inflammation and pain. After the attack is completely gone then you will probably start allopurinol to help prevent a future gout attack and then start your xarelto again. Stay away from aspirin and tylenol. These drugs can actually trigger a gout attack and the tylenol (acetominophen) does nothing for inflammation.
