In brief: Several meds

For acute gout attacks, colchicine, nsaids, and Prednisone can be helpful.
Long term prevention of attacks is done with allopurinol. I've seen literature suggesting that titrating Allopurinol to a uric acid level of 5.5 or lower as a goal to prevent "silent" joint damage. Ulcers are treated with ppi's like Omeprazole and either "triple" or "quadruple" therapy.
