Can you take gout meds with lasik meds?

Can you take gout meds with lasik meds?

Yes.: Yes. It is best that you keep hydrated because you are more likely to get another gout attack when dehydrated. A diuretic will dehydrate you but you can take gout medicine with it. See a podiatrist for a cortisone injection into the joint if you have an acute attack.
