I have PV and am on aspirin and hydroxy. Was prescribed allopurinol a couple of years ago as a permanent drug to prevent future gout - my haem does this for all his patients. But I don't like taking any more meds than necessary, and I get a lot of aches and stiff joints, which I see can be a side effect of allopurinol. My bloods are currently in balance, so I wonder if there is any point in taking the allopurinol....anyone got any info?
