Hello, folks. My husband has been diagnosed with gout. Every once in awhile, he experiences acute gout attack. I won’t describe you how painful this is. I was wondering if there is any way how to stop this type of attack. I would really appreciate this piece of info. Thank you in advance.

Hi to you too. They say that pain in acute gout attack is one of the strongest. Your husband should be on his regular treatment and on a diet. If the attack happens, doctors usually recommend non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Usually, Indocin is helpful. However, if one has ulcer, he cannot take them. In that case, steroids are advised. Colchicin is also a drug that is used for gouty attacks for years. In any case, consult your husband’s doctor. Good luck!
