“How Fast Do Gout Drugs Work?”

(click the image to play the audio)

line-breakDo You Take Drugs?

Why do you to that?  You’re Mother told not to, right?  Well, maybe she didn’t because she was programmed and condition by her doctor and then she programmed and conditioned you to do whatever your doctor told you to do, just like she did.  So when you started getting gout, you thought the only thing you could do is take drugs – is that accurate?

Don’t get me wrong; there are a lot of good reasons to take advantage of allopathic medicine…after you’ve exhausted all the other common sense things you can do to maintain your good health and keep gout at bay, just by being smart and proactive.

When it comes to the pain of gout, in all it’s forms, knowing how fast you’re going to be able get out of pain and get back in the game, is what you want to know, and that is why we’re talking about it today in this gout conference call.

Hi Bert,

The “remedy” of BS and ACV worked immediately as you said it would. A steady diet of banana-blueberry smoothies, green tea and celery on Day 2 has kept the swelling down. Not sure what caused the flare up as we eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean beef, chicken and fish, and moderate alcohol use. Your theory of too much acid, possibly caused by stress, makes sense. Will try lemon-infused water to make my body more alkaline – plus continue the bananas, celery and cherries. Other ideas welcome. The drugs the doctor prescribed were making me sick, so your remedy (other than the ACV ?) was a welcome relief.

Gout Drugs…Billion Dollar Money Maker for Big Pharma

In 2014, the pharmaceutical industry reported billion dollar earnings on medications for gout, with projections to be 3.5 billion dollars by 2018.  I think we need to be careful about them banking on our gout getting worse, just so they can make even more money.


There are a number of gout drugs out there that work in a lot of different ways, but the two most widely used and time tested are allopurinol and colchicine.  Allopurinol is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor to help control the production of uric acid and therefore lower blood uric acid.  Colchicine is strictly an anti-inflammatory and is derived from the Autumn Crocus plant.  It has been used for centuries, however, in excessive amounts, it can be lethal…i.e. it’s a poison.


I’ve had a lot experience with both of these drugs.  What people want to know is how fast does allopurinol work – how much time will pass before you stop getting gout attacks?  The bad news with allopurinol is that in the early progression of “getting up to speed” on it, often people experience more gout attacks.  It is often said not to start it when you in the middle of a gout attack.  That was my experience, and in fact, even after I got the result numbers of my blood uric acid into an acceptable range, I still got gout attacks.

To learn more about allopurinol, how it works, and what to expect, go visit my page on allopurinol.   To hear about my experience with getting on allopurinol and gauge how quickly it might work for you, listen to the whole audio.


The odd thing about colchicine in my experience is that it was never really effective.  My doc had me on a low daily dose to keep me from getting the initial attacks on allopurinol, but that is the same dose they sell you three pills for $15 nowadays to stop a gout attack…!  WHAT?!   Not only is colchicine relatively ineffective, but if went from $.04 a pill to $5 a pill when the pharmaceutical company URL Pharma bought the rights and did the testing for FDA approval on it.

If you would like to find out more about the history of colchicine, Wikipedia is a good starting point.

The Gout Killer Way

Allopathic medicine is great…for trauma and diagnostics.  But when it comes to these modern, degenerative diseases like gout, jumping straight to these heavy duty drugs is not the wisest or most common sense way to approach gout.

Stop Gout Pain Now

It really follows everything that I distilled down into the seven different areas of what we have to do and pay attention to, to keep ourselves healthy and gout free.  All of that is in my video program.  I created the program a few years ago, an since then, too many people to even keep track of, have turned their lives around and are much healthier, much happier, and experience gout far less, if at all.

   Remember:  How fast gout drugs work has everything to do with how healthy your are (or aren’t) in the first place.



Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
