consider asking his doc for uricosurics like allopurinol or Probenecid (brand - Benemid, Probalan), or these meds which can help chronic gout:
Corticosteroids or adrenocorticotropic hormone
ColBenemid (brand Col-Probenecid and Proben-C) = Probenecid + Colchicine
Losartan, (brand - Cozaar and Hyzaar)
Fenofibrate, (brand - Tricor),
