I have a friend that has gout and is worried about the medication side effects, does anyone know the negative effects of allopurinol?

Why doesn't : Your friend discuss this with the prescribing doctor? All risks, benefits and side effects should be discussed when prescribing a medication.

What kidneys: If on Allopurinol you should have your kidney function check periodically.
